This has been one of the hottest and driest summers we have had, at least in our area, in a couple of years. We rarely get any days at or close to 90 degrees and we have had them in surplus this year. We have also had very little rain, with the exception of a HUGE storm that just rolled through this morning (thank you thank you thank you!!!). Now, I am loving the summer heat, don’t get me wrong. But, you must remember, I work at a greenhouse. Outdoors. All day. Often times baking in the glass or plastic greenhouses that are upwards of 100 degrees daily. So, this summer, I have mostly been attached to a hose making up for the lack of rain. The moral of the story? When it is that hot out you don’t have an appetite for anything. But, if you don’t eat something, you will probably faint. So here is a roundup of my 6 all time favorite lunches to get you through those hot summer days. They are cool and refreshing and keep you energized for a tough day outdoors.
