meal planning in a heat wave

We just had a crazy heat wave where Oakland and Berkeley were 95 degrees. It was terrible really but we ended up eating dinner for two nights outside in Lakeside park which felt much cooler than our apartment. I felt relaxed spending the evening after work outdoors sprawled out on a blanket under the trees despite the warm temps.

Sunday pizza night was almost cancelled but I persevered. I will certainly have to come up with some hot weather dinner options. This is something I have to research because my first thought is eat out in an air conditioned restaurant but that may not be sustainable if we have a summer. Monday we ate tuna sandwiches and Tuesday we got Whole Foods salad bar. Maybe pre-made food is the way to go. Pre-cooked and ready to take to Lakeside park.

summer pajamas

I love the flannel pajamas that I got at the beginning of winter. They are soft and cozy and it feels so nice to have a set. Lately the weather has not been warm but I recall summer days and nights that are so hot in our apartment that clothes seem unnecessary. It would be nice to have light summer pjs and I have my eyes on the Salter House collection for when those days come around. The cotton pajamas in rose print are my favorite (for sleep) but I also think that the night dress styles would be perfect for lounging about.
