On hot summer days, especially, that marvelous invention, the microwave oven, is a God-send. Don't overlook the use of this to avoid heating up the kitchen, and oursleves. There is such a great variety of foods in the frozen-food section of our grocery stores. Not just of foods, but of quantity: for one, two, or a large group. If you do dare to use the oven or stove, cook enough for two or three meals, then properly freeze the leftover (2 or 3 separate containers) for future micro-waving meals. It's summer, it's hot, it's 'Kool Cooking' time!!
