This post is for anyone who doesn't have air conditioning and live somewhere hot. We don't and our summers can get well into the 90s. Needless to say, my desire to turn on my oven in the summer time quickly melts to zero. And by the time dinner rolls around, I'm far too hot and exhausted to even want to think of cooking. But, last summer a good friend reminded me that I already owned the perfect solution:
Crockpots on the Patio
It was the perfect solution. I could make dinner in the morning when I still had energy and I didn't have to warm up my house in the process. Just make a crockpot meal and then plug in your crockpot in the backyard.
