Sometimes I am just too hot to cook. And I don’t mean sexy. I mean hot as in temperature hot. When the mercury rises like this and I’m feeling hot, hot, hot, that song of the same name runs through my head and I’d rather be dancing around my kitchen than cooking in it.
This no-cooking-required menu is perfect for these sultry summer nights, showing you can still eat well without feeling hot, hot, hot. And the hibiscus iced tea (a little like Jamaican sorrel), will keep you refreshed while bopping along to this Calypso classic! Here’s a YouTube link to Arrow performing it live in Montreal with a happy crowd dancing along…back when crowds were still permitted.

Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot Menu
Beverage: Hibiscus Iced Tea (deliciously refreshing before, during or after your meal)
Soup: Corn & White Bean Gazpacho (keep your cool and use canned white beans and frozen corn – though cooked and crumbled bacon would be an inspired garnish)
Salad: Shrimp & Avocado Salad (if you buy the shrimp already cooked then the only heat you’ll need comes from the hot sauce; chicken breast also works well here)
Dessert: No Bake Chocolate Cookies (these would be extra-cool with a little vanilla ice cream on top)
