Hot Weather Meal Strategies

l Plan ahead. Make menus each week and stick to them.

l Use your freezer. Freeze meat in marinades, fresh fruit pieces for snacks and look for freezable dessert recipes.

l Cook with everything but the oven. Use your rice steamer, the crock pot, pressure cooker and of course your charcoal or gas grill.

l Don’t forget your microwave—they don’t heat up the kitchen the way ovens and stoves do.

l Take advantage of plentiful fresh produce.

l When you cook, make it count. Cook once, but plan to eat at least three times.

l Make use of pre-prepared foods.
