Hot Town, Summer in the City

The heat from the devil's lair has come up to greet us this week. It's so hot the chickens are laying hard boiled eggs. We were two degrees off from setting the highest ever recorded temps in NYC. It makes cooking a bit of a challenge. I had some left over hamburger meat to use up so I made a fast chili mac using canned black and cannellini beans as well as fire-roasted canned tomatoes, and boxed chicken stock.

To add a fresh homemade quality I roasted some banana peppers stovetop and added them in along with onions, garlic, cumin, chili powder, you know, the usual suspects.

It is so hot that when P went out for his bike ride instead of taking UV Ray protection, I just told him to take his dental records.


  1. Hard boiled eggs, dental're a regular Soupy Sales.

  2. haa haa. Thank you, I'll be here all week!


Just nod if you can hear me. Is there anyone at home?
