What foods did you cook in this summer?

Postby Sigma » Sun Aug 07, 2005 10:57 am

The hot weather makes us less appetite, and, my friends and I don't know what foods we should cook,everyday, we just makes a big plateful of soup, and then a big watermelon. It's not because we are very lazy, cause too hot outside!
What foods do you cook in this summer, and what foods are fit to eat in the hot summer?

Watermelon is the best fruit you can eat in summer! I love it too.

Salads are good, with little calories and really tasty!!! :D There is a great variety of salads you can prepare, with tones of ingredients!!

A very typical summer dish here is Russian salad (I don't know how it's said in English, I just made a rough translation). There's a whole variety of those, too, depending on the cook's tastes :D

Well, dixie! You're always the most timely posts replier.
Salad, good idea, I think I'd go to a bookstall to buy a cooking book,special the salads cooking book. Enjoy salads in own home,and it's DIY, that will be another different flavor! Great!

When it's hot, I like cooking and eating cold pasta.
You can make it in many ways: with tomatoes and 'mozzarella' cheese, with nuts and peppers, with tuna and olives, with shrimps and marrows... and whatever your creativity suggests.

I think I only eat fruits, raw fruits. OR to eat food with my mom. I do not like to do anything in summer. You know I am a lazy girl. :)

There is one estonian food what is good in hot summer. It's called "kama"....basically It's dhick drink. To prepare it, u simple mix some "kama flour" with some milk product like kefir or something... But I don't think that u can get "kama" in china.

I like cold "kama" in hot summer very much, it's so refreshing... but only in hot summer.

but it's easier to get things already done instead of making it ourselves. and it takes less time :)

easier, of course.

But is it the goal that all becomes easier ?

"All done" is bad for know-how (in cooking for example).
