Muggy Rainy Day, So It's Off to Camp We Go

Since Mummy & Daddy won't ship these delicious boys to us, we're heading off to visit them at camp. It's muggy, steamy and rainy here in Halifax, and we have to get out of the house which has no air conditioning and very few breezes.

It was so hot last night that even though I had prepped all the fixings for a brilliant salad....grilled some maple spice rubbed shrimps and boiled some eggs in the morning and thought to make a sophisticated adaptation of a frequent star at our summer table....Salade Nicoise.
I even picked up some beautiful new carrots, young onions and a gorgeous baguette at the Partners for Care Market outside our big teaching hospital QE II Health Science Centre.
But by suppertime, it was stifling indoors and we headed out to a favorite haunt...Boneheads BBQ...great BBQ, iced cold beer, air conditioning and good company...a perfect combo to manage a heat wave. What's your secret weapon for a heat wave?

Air conditioning. I dream of air conditioning....
Some spicy ribs and a cold brew would be pretty good, too.
