Ah, July, the month when I endeavor not to turn on the oven or the stove, ever, at all, for any reason, amen. The reason I find excuses to turn the oven ON in the winter is the same reason I use keep it OFF in the summer in our un-air-conditioned second-floor apartment.
But the Big Girls, Small Kitchen people have come up with a very nice post about no-cook dinners, so I may have run out of excuses to order take-out sushi every night. Roasting lots of tomatoes at once right before you go out is a good idea, and I also like the idea of antipasti plates for dinner. Yum.
