I don’t know about you but cooking hasn’t been at the top of our list in our house the past week. It’s been so hot and humid outside that we really wanted to eat simple without using the stove, oven or crock pot. This is the part of the year where the bbq is my best friend. We even use the side burner to sauté or fry whatever we need to. One day we would love to have an outdoor kitchen but not likely in Ontario although the brick oven is an option.
This week was supposed to be our no-shop week as we only have $46.42 left in the budget for the month but… that didn’t happen. We needed more vegetables and bread and with the prices of vegetables so low now it makes sense to load up. We’ve made Mr.CBB’s Garlic humus and dipping veg in for a healthy snack so we’ve eaten more than usual. Since we aren’t cooking as much we are eating salad pretty much 7 days a week with a BBQ’d protein,cous-cous, sandwiches, boiled eggs or tuna.
