Sometimes when lazy. Get packs of ham/salami/smoked salmon, butter, dips, and chilli sauces. Lots of bread/toast. Might fried or poach an egg, but that's it for hot food. Something about having eggs and cold cuts on toast for dinner with chilli sauce/harissa that is nice.
Tuna salad is a cold one-dish dinner! Eating it right now
Noodles (shell noodles are my favorite although I am currently eating it with spaghetti noodles)
Cream of Mushroom soup (or you can alternate for a bit of whipping cream that you season, or mayo, if you’re in a pinch without the soup)
Boil and cook the noodles in a pot on the stove, if using frozen peas add them halfway through, then drain and remove from heat; drain the tuna juice and give it to your cat, shred the tuna into the pot with the noodles and add the cream of mushroom and fresh peas if using those. You can eat it now and put the rest in the fridge for later, it’s meant to be eaten cold. This is the base for the general taste - you may add other vegetables if desired.
Had some honey ham, spicy hungarian salami, mozzarella and swiss cheeses...put them on crackers. Just cut up the meat and cheese a lil. Simple and quick dinner. Heat wave is gonna last awhile and plus getting drunk so LESS IS MORE for the belly.
My warm weqther meals are usually all variations of:
A chef salad
Chicken (pan cooked in flax seed oil.)
Salad tomatoes (raw tomatoes are good. Fight me irl.)
Sauteed and chilled white onion and radish
Sliced bell pepper
I used to get nagged all the time about my indifference to eating cold leftovers. I had to eat "cold" MRE's all the time, food turned into something to sate hunger and give energy. Not something I would sit down and enjoy.
My mom used to HATE cooking in the summer. So while when it was school season or winter we had home cooked hot meals. Every summer unless we went out to eat it was Tuna fish or pb and J foe dinner or salad or anything that didn't require Turing the stove/oven on
