I made a salad with popcorn chicken on the top(nuked). It was just too hot to turn the oven on today. I think the high here(South GA)was somewhere between 92 and 95.....ugh

Yogurt and fruit here. Although it isn't quite as hot in Cleveland as elsewhere, I live in a brick building with eastern exposure-keeping heat during the winter is good but really stinks during the summer!

I had leftovers from last nite, it was Chicken Fajitas, minus a few ingredients, and fusili fruit salad....totally awesome! I've been snacking on the salad since last nite, it made a whole lot of it, and is pretty good. I didn' t think I'd like it, but b/c it has fruit in it, it's really yummy. Anyone want the recipe???

I don't usually like fruit in my salad either, but I am curious about the recipe. If you don't mind, of course.

Fusili and Fruit Salad From Canada!

Makes 6 cups

1 1/2 cups\tFusili (spiral pasta)\t\t375 ml
1 can\t(14 oz/398 ml) pineapple tidbits, drained\t1
1 can\t(10 oz/284 ml) mandarin orange segments, drained\t1
1 cup\thalved green or red grapes\t250 ml
1/2 cup\tdiced unpeeled red apple\t125 ml
1/2 cup\tyogurt cheese or lower fat thick yogurt\t125 ml
2 tbsp\tfrozen orange juice concentrate, thawed\t25 ml
1\tsmall banana, sliced\t1

1. In a pot of boiling water, cook pasta until tender but firm, drain. Rinse under cold water, drain. Transfer to a large bowl. Add pineapple, oranges, grapes and apples.

2. In a separate bowl, stir together yogurt cheese, and orange juice concentrate. Pour over pasta mixture; toss gently. Chill. Stir in sliced bananas just before serving.

Yogurt Cheese
To make 1 cup (250 ml) of yogurt cheese:
Use 2 cups of plain low-fat yogurt (Balkan-style, not stirred, made without gelatin). Line a sieve with a double thickness of paper towel or cheesecloth. Pour yogurt into the sieve and place over a bowl. Cover well with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least two hours. Discard liquid and keep in an airtight container the refrigerator for up to a week.

If you want to drain overnight, use 3 cups yogurt (750 ml) to get 1 cup yogurt cheese. The longer you drain the yogurt, the more tart it becomes. Yogurt cheese can be used in a variety of other dips and dressings.

I just used plain, stirred, low-fat yogurt in place of the yogurt cheese, b/c I couldn't find any of the specified yogurt, and it worked fine. I didn't use apples, but everything else. I also put cinnamon on it when I eat it, just gives it that little something extra. I didn't halve the grapes, just left them whole, and I used 2 mandarin oranges, not the canned ones. I think it's better without the canned ones. Enjoy!!! It is really good!!!!

Man it's cold here! Yesterday and today. It was kinda rainy and windy, not really really windy like it could have been, but just a slight breeze. I don't know if the temp even got up to 15 today! (that's in Celsius for all of ya). So tonite I made porkchops...I can do that, it's cheaper for just one, rather than 5 who eat 2 each. Just me, and they came in a package of 3, so I have some to eat tomorrow for lunch! Yum Yum! Cold porkchops are the best! :yum: I had poutine also...mostly actually. B/c the porkchops were kinda thick, they took about an hour to cook all the way through, and I thought 1/2 hr would be long enough so I made the fries, and they were ready, so I had them instead. Now I have 3 porkchops for tomorrow. I might take one to work for lunch, or I might just decide to leave it at home and eat when I get home at midnite. lol

Coco - hot chips are the kiwi word for french fries.

Other than a roast in the crock pot, I haven't cooked, all week. Working until 7 is not conducive to having a nice dinner. Bill and I have been eating leftovers and frozen dinners.

He doesn't know it yet but we're going out to dinner, Saturday. Sunday, he gets to grill pork chops. Fry's has them on sale, for .99 per pound.

Usually we have a month or more of 100+F weather here in Utah and the rest is mid to upper 90's. But it's not as bad as 80's were in northern Michigan where we had 100% humidity. Here we don't have humidity and sometimes that is a problem!

I like pasta salad when it's hot. I add whatever veggies are available, some cheese chunks and either leftover chicken, shrimp or immitation crab.

I also like a cold shrimp salad with lettuce, popcorn shrimp, veggies etc.
