Beat the Heat and Simplify Your Life

The summer months are upon us, and here in Colorado the heat came with a vengence.  We literally went from 80 degrees to 100, and boy is it HOT. 

The summer heat makes the kitchen the last place anyone wants to be. 

Here is a great summer idea:  TAKE A KITCHEN BREAK

Most people give themselves limited options when they don’t feel like cooking—namely, calling in for pizza or pulling out the Chinese takeout menu. Instead, why not ask a few neighbors and friends if they want to go in on a meal exchange program: Each person takes turns cooking and delivering a simple dinner in one shot.

Not only can you come home from work to a great meal that is ready to eat (and who doesn't love that?), you also have more time to do the things you want to do.  Not to mention, cooking in volume is more economical. 

A few things to consider with your meal exchange group:
1)  Each person should decide what they will be preparing in advance and either collect appropriate serving dishes from each other, or agree to use disposables. 
2)  Set a maximum budget each person can or should spend.
3)  Communicate meals with each other to avoid duplication.
4)  Establish a delivery schedule and method.
