Week of July 6

Is July to early to be called the dog days of summer? All I know is we'll be cranking up the air conditioning for the second time this summer.

High heat and humidity mean that I'll be putting the grill into heavy rotation. I also heard a story on NPR yesterday about garlic, and the interviewee described a cold garlic soup. Sounds great for a 90-degree day, doesn't it?
