We started the week with a hot apartment every morning (thanks SF summer!) and I started every morning with iced coffee. Cool showers and coconut popcicles still didn’t make me want to turn on the oven at night. After one dinner of cold leftover pizza and a salad in front of our fan, I found a recipe for cold avocado soup, topped with roasted corn and crumbled bacon. Frying bacon in a tank top and no pants wasn’t one of my better decisions this week, but the bacon really made the soup delicious.
The weather cooled just in time for our blood pressure to go way up on Wednesday night. We had a simple pasta sauce over linguine– in the cuisinart I pulsed slivered almonds, garlic, parsley and sweet 100 tomatoes, and tossed with olive oil, arugula and pasta with a little bit of pecorino romano.
We’re continuing with our goal to eat more seafood, first clams, now whole fish. We started off easy with trout filleted and seasoned with rosemary salt, pepper and lemon.
