Cool Carolina Cuisine

Have you seen the five day forecast?  I cannot recall a hotter string of days in North Carolina.

The question today is: How do you eat and still beat the heat?  What recipes do you use to avoid heating the house and making the steamy situation worse.

Our family will be eating lots of salads this week. Chicken salad, tuna salad and crab meat salad. I will also probably break out some pimento cheese made with sharp cheddar and paste in some fresh celery grooves.  How about some cucumbers on ice and vinegar?

What about you? How do you cope with this brutal heat and still stay nourished?
