Tuesday Turn About #109 Cool Summer Recipes

Spread the love

We are starting a very cool party during a very HOT summer! So let’s bring down the temps with Tuesday Turn About #109 Cool Summer Recipes.


Last week’s party went all coastal!

Y’all… I can’t even with the heat!

Seriously, My Wee Abode is so hot that I’m sitting in a nearby air-conditioned restaurant working on this post!

Whoever said that those of us near the beach don’t need AC, well… I’m bettin’ they never lived here.

So, I just finished a cool summer salad and I’m sippin’ an iced tea and keepin’ things cool!

And speaking of cool, we had LOTS of summer recipes posted this past week that looked so refreshing! This week, I just couldn’t pass up sharing 1 or 3 of them with you!

And remember…

Let’s get a couple tips first, shall we?

Weekly Household Tip

I’m always surprised to find out how many people don’t know this simple tip my mom taught me as a girl.

If you have hard cookies or even brown sugar that has turned to stone, place a small piece of bread inside the bag/container. The cookies and/or sugar will absorb the moisture from the bread and revive those rock-hard items!

Weekly Blogging Tip

Do you make regular backups of your blog?

Many of our site providers do this for us each night, but it’s a good practice to keep at least 1 or 2 backups of your own. The easiest way I have found to do this is with the free UpdraftPlus plugin. This plugin is ‘lightweight’ and easy to use! Give it a try… you’ll be glad you did!

Now, let’s partay!

Cold Grilled Chicken on a Summer’s Day

Don’t you love grilled chicken? I especially love grilled chicken thighs that have been in the fridge overnight! So yummy for a summer picnic. Estelle from Homemade on a Weeknight is sharing her delicious marinade recipe that makes for some simple grilled chicken that is great served hot… or cold!

  1. We’re about a mile and a half from the Pacific Ocean. A few years ago we decided to put in air-conditioning and kind of made fun of ourselves and said we probably would never turn it on. Well…fast forward, every summer it has been on!

    1. Yes, I would use AC if at all possible. But in my situation, my LL wouldn’t allow me to add a small AC (utilities are included in my rent)!

  2. Thanks for the party, Julie. I agree with you about needing AC even in southern California. When we lived there, we didn’t have it and there were definitely a few weeks each year that I wished we did. Hope you’re having a wonderful week!

  3. I totally understand and don’t know how I’d handle it. I grew up in an 1840’s farmhouse without AC and looking back I don’t know how we stood it. So I get your feelings. take care and have some of that wonderful pineapple ice cream!

  4. We didn’t have air conditioning growing up in Ohio — and I remember well all the miserable nights trying to sleep with only a fan. I can’t imagine living in Georgia without A/C!! Even though we don’t keep the temp super cool, just removing all the %^*$@# humidity makes summer heat so much more bearable.
