More hot weather fare

Fruit smoothies:

I don't have much fruit in my garden, but once we went to a wedding reception and there was a whole lot of fruit chunks left over--from those fruit platters you get from Costco. Lots of melon, strawberries, pineapple and stuff. They were going to throw it out, so I brought it home and froze it. When things got really blistering hot, I took a handful of the frozen fruit and a banana, and pureed them in the blender with some fruit juice. (You could also use yogurt.)

This is a good way to use any fruit that's been sitting around for a while and is in danger of getting overripe. Just chop it, freeze it, and get it out later when you need a cool, refreshing drink. (Or you can buy the frozen fruit at Trader Joe's.)
