Fill In The Blank Friday

It's HOT around here this week! To combat the heat, we're eating (drinking?) smoothies and eating a lot of fruit cold from the fridge.

Has it been hot where you live? Do you like the hot weather? (I'm not really a fan of the uber hot, but I like it better than the uber cold!)

This week's Fill In The Blank Friday is:

The food/drink I choose when it's really hot is ____________________.

Please continue to pray for those affected by wildfires in the west, the tropical storm flooding in Florida, and the flooding in northern Minnesota.

  1. It's also hot in central Minnesota! We went to the lake to beat the heat (I posted a quick vlog about it today). I'm just happy that the humidity is down.

    I love drinking ice tea on a hot day.

    1. Have you read that book "Too Hot, Went To the Lake"? It sums up MN in the summer perfectly!

    2. Yes, by Peg Meier! She came to the Lindbergh House where I worked for ten years to do some research and I had a chance to meet her. Great book!

  2. It's super hot down here in the Memphis region. I choose lemonade. Real lemonade preferably, but Crystal Light will do! And Pellegrino!

  4. Ice water! Yes, it's been hot here, around 100 each day, which is really hot for us, especially by the foothills at over 5,000 feet.

    I will be praying for all the places you mentioned!

    1. At that elevation, I doubt I could drink enough water! Where I'm from in Kansas any pile of dirt taller than 10 ft was called a foothill. :)

  5. Love the hot weather. It just doesn't seem to last as long as cold winters. I like ice tea and popsicles to keep cool.

    I like drinking ice water and my new favorite drink called a June bug. It has ginger ale, grenadine and orange sherbet. Between uber hot and uber cold, I would go with cold every time. I also eat a lot of slushies.

  7. I don't like HOT...and it has been over 100 here in Texas for the past week. Bleh.

    I prefer a cold glass of sweet ice tea when it is super hot. It just glides down and soothes my parched throat!

    1. Didn't you all have about six months of 100 + temps last year? You deserve some cool weather! And rain!

      I love tea, but not sweet tea. But lots of ice, and a wedge of lemon and I'm there! :)

    2. We had like 60+ days straight of 100+ heat. I'm telling you, it is a killer...literally. We were on water restrictions and our grass died. Brown everywhere!

  8. It is so hot in Oklahoma right now. It's not my favorite, but I prefer hot over cold. We tend to eat a lot more fruit and salad when it's this hot.
