Okay. I'm a gonna say it again. It is HOT y'all. Whew!

Magazines are arriving all decked out in the unmistakable colors of fall, loaded with fall baking recipes, chilis, soups and stews, and apple recipes are everywhere, even already with many bloggers. A Florida Sam's Club even has Christmas decorations out now. Yes. In August. I'm serious y'all!

And, while I'm so ready for some fall weather to show up myself, with the heat of 100+ feels like temps slapping us in the face everytime we walk out of the door here, well fall, I'm just not that into you. For the Deep South, fall won't come along for awhile yet and summer, like an unwelcome guest who stays just a little bit too long, is often still here far past the fall introduction anyway, so bring on the icebox desserts, frozen treats, summer cocktails and quick meals I say!

Broccoli and Cauliflower Refrigerator Salad

Broccoli and Cauliflower Refrigerator Salad - Broccoli and cauliflower combined with chopped cabbage, carrot, bell pepper and red onion, tossed with a mayonnaise and vinegar dressing to make a fresh coleslaw that will last for days, making it a perfect refrigerator salad to have on hand.

Whew! It is hotter than hot here in the Deep South y'all. I'm still cooking... of course, we gotta eat no matter the heat, right? And yes, like most Southerners, I really don't have a season for the occasional treat of any of our Southern Classic recipes, even during the heat of the summer, though I do tend to lean more toward simple food on the outside grill, sandwiches and a lot of veggies and salads - in case you hadn't noticed from my summer postings this year.

Football season has arrived! Well, it's really only preseason, but don't tell The Cajun that. It doesn't matter one way or the other, because to him, football is football and our television has been blaring the NFL Network for days now.
