Grocery News: What to Eat

Every year when the weather warms up, I experience culinary amnesia. Tell me, what do we eat again when it’s hot outside?

There’s always grilled X plus fruit salad, but I have several cookbooks to recommend that are organized by season. This seems to be an increasingly popular way to write cookbooks, or maybe I’ve just become more aware of it. These offers tons of recipes that are perfect when the weather changes and you need to change gears too.

For warm weather cooking ideas, here are my tried-and-true recommendations:
Great Food Fast (from the Kitchens of Martha Stewart Living)
– A Year in a Vegetarian Kitchen by Jack Bishop
– Fresh Food Fast by Peter Berley

These three books are all geared toward those of us who cook while helping others take off socks and re-attach Bionicle legs. Another thing they have in common is an emphasis on fresh ingredients in dishes that are easy to prepare. And if you have food that is easy, yummy, and lets you keep your cool on a hot day (or warms you up on a snow day), you are all set.

One other good option: buy sushi and eat it on your lawn.
