Good lord, it's hot.

My office window is sweaty.

There is no way in hell I'm getting in my car again today. (The inside temperature was higher.)

He couldn't do anything but lie there. I think he wanted in the house. I don't blame him. It's hotter than hay-bees out there.

This is about the only thing that I feel like eating, besides ice cream.

But in the interest of consuming something filling and reasonably healthy that will get me through my workout (for which I will be cranking the A/C down to 40), I can make these peaches into a smoothie. Which will involve turning on no heat source or ingesting anything that is above 60 degrees F.

Peach Smoothie

1 cup fresh peaches, peeled and cut into chunks

1/2 cup silken tofu

1/4 cup skim milk or peach nectar or orange juice (I know. It's a wide array of flavors here, but they're all good.)

1/2 tsp. vanilla

1 cup ice

1 Tbs honey (more or less to taste - a lot will depend on how sweet your peaches are.)

1. Dump everything in the blender and puree until smooth.

You crack me up, Andie! It is hot! And a peach smoothie sounds like just the thing to put a smile on my face. Heading to the farmers market on Friday and will definitely be picking up some peaches to make this smoothie. Noms!
