Check out Myrtle from my visit to the New England Sea Aquarium. I guess she has a few years of practicing poses (she’s 75+ years old!).
It’s a hot week in Boston. I’ve been contemplating buying one of these Zoku ice pop or slush makers. Does anyone own one? Do they really make ice pops in 7 minutes? Because I would be making one every hour.
I’ve been avoiding making any hot food all week. We’re a No AC Household – I just can’t see why I would have one for the 10 days/year it’s over 90 degrees. Plus, as long as no one has a health concern with the heat, I think it’s good to embrace the season and sweat a little.
Here are some hot weather eats (and a refreshing fruity drink) to help get you through:
Lemony Bulgur Salad with Shrimp and Spinach from Food & Wine
Vietnamese Spring Rolls with Spicy Peanut Sauce from The Kitchn
Cold Beet and Farro Salad on laist, recipe from Melina Davies, chef and owner at Olive & Thyme
No Bake Salted Nutella Oatmeal Cookies from Confessions of a Chocoholic
Ice Cream with Honey-Poached Apricots from Real Simple
