HOT Weather in PDX

It has been unseasonably HOT here in the Portland area the last few days. Even too hot to cook or even think about grilling outdoors. Hence the multiple post to this blog today. It is too hot to do anything other than sit on the couch to read or watch TV or be on the internet.

Yesterday I went grocery shopping and bought a rotisserie turkey breast at Safeway. I have only bought a turkey breast there once before and it was really good. Last night for dinner I sliced off some of the turkey and put it in a steamer bag with fresh local asparagus. I only added pepper and a tiny bit of butter. It was a fabulous no fuss meal. Tonight I am steaming broccoli with just a small chunk of hard aged Gouda cheese. With it I will have some large cooked shrimp with cocktail sauce that I will spice up some with horseradish. Yum! Such easy to prepare meals for hot summer days.These steamer bags are a great invention. I wish I had the patent on them. I reuse my bags at least once depending on what I have steamed in them. There is nothing to clean up and no pan of water boiling over on your stove top.
