Too Hot to Cook!

Happy Pink Saturday!


That's what we do when it's too hot to cook. Paper Plates and Cups full of ice are regular fare.

However, when the males are out of the house (which is SO rare!) I indulge myself at dinner time and use my Pink Petunia Pastelware and pretty stem ware and set dinner on a pink TV tray rescued via garage sale or flea market.

Cold Tuna salad with Parmesan Toast Triangles and a side of Pea Salad, flanked with a BIG goblet of Flavored Iced Tea.

A wonderful alternative to slaving over a hot stove.

Special thanks to our sweet Hostess: Beverly at How Sweet The Sound Hop on over to see what other Pink Goodies are being showcased today!

Have a wonder day!

Stay COOL,


  1. Happy Pink Saturday!

  8. What a pretty way to beat the heat! Happy Pink Saturday!

  9. Looks good to me! My husband cooked tonight (potato croquettes - ready made from the chiller cabinet - with a tin of spaghetti bolognese and some cold chicken). What a combination! But as I didn't have to cook it (it's really humid, thunder but no rain) it tasted WONDERFUL!

    You might be interested in the vintage recipes on my blog - for a hot climate, funnily enough... Have a perfectly Pink Saturday!

  10. Looks delicious! It was nice here in my neck of the woods too. We had BBQ hamburgers and hot dogs, a summer favorite! Happy Pink Saturday and have a loveleigh weekend!

  11. Everthing looks so cool and delicious! What a lovely meal for one. Such a treat! Love the pink luncheon plate with the pink cup!

    Thanks for sharing! Enjoy your weekend!


  12. I remember when my grandmother had a set of lunch/snacks plates with the cups. I loved those and think they used to be very popular in the day. I have no idea if you can buy them now, but they are wonderful. What a shame they arent' used more today. Yours are beautiful, Happy PInk Saturday, Char

  13. What a neat way to deal with the was rather grim, wasn't it?!
