Too darn hot

We're enjoying one of those very British heatwaves that make Australians and Texans giggle and pat us on the head. But it's hot for here, OK? Too hot to do much cooking - which is unfortunate, because I have also had a lot of cherries to preserve - and definitely too hot to spend much time indoors sorting out blog photos and writing thoughtful prose.
 So grab yourself a cooling drink (these creamsicle margaritas are a good choice) and come and lie on the lawn with Urchin and me. And if you haven't tried kim chi on your hot dog instead of sauerkraut, you are definitely missing something good. Tangy, spicy, cooling - just what a grilled sausage inna bun needs.

Sounds good to me - I'm on my way! I've got a taste for the lagers with added lemonade which are being advertised as something new this year, although I'm sure such things were very popular 40 years ago!

I am an Aussie in London and heck I'm finding it hot!!!! It's just not made for hot weather here!!!!! Iced tea it is...

The thought of kim chi gets my mouth watering even though I am not a hot dog fan.

Suelle - I haven't seen those! I do quite like a lager shandy though.

Meg - I know - none of the buildings are intended for this weather!

Mother - those particular dogs were rather good organic, rarebreed ones. Much tastier than the average!

creamsicle margaritas sound great! i've never tasted kimchi on anything, much less a hot dog...

Well, the idea of cooling down with a margarita sounds good to me! And that one looks particularly good.
Keep cool!

Hot dog with kim chi...that sounds like a perfect pairing.
