Hot weather food

Ninja's lemon ice sounds good.

But what do you eat when the weather turns hellish?

UPDATE: I boiled a couple of pounds of shrimp (frozen Key West pink from Kroger; you'd be surprised how dependable they are) in Zatarain's crab boil, then tossed them on ice. I whipped up two sauces -- one the standard with chili sauce, horseradish, Worcestershire, Tabasco and lemon juice, the other a Mexican-style blend of sweetened ketchup, lime, cilantro, avocado and cayenne. I toasted some Boulevard Bread baguette with garlic butter. And that was that.

Fritz is heading out to Sonic for a Blizzard for dessert.

We only needed about 10 minutes of stove-top heat to turn out this cool meal and I didn't see anybody unhappy, particularly since I peeled about half the shrimp.

Sorry, another one of those meals where the vultures prohibited picture-taking.

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
