Cooking in a Really Hot Kitchen

Who doesn’t love a good old fashioned home cooked meal? In my personal experience, no one that I’ve offered to cook for has ever declined my offer.

  • My good friend, Terry, and I are always looking for ways to help our community, and one of our favorites things to do is to cook meals for those in need.

We volunteer at homeless shelters as well as at different church events to ensure that the people in our community are getting wholesome, home cooked meals at least sometime in their life. We are continually amazed at just how many children we meet that have never had a nice meal in their lifetime. They are mostly fed microwave meals, or they simply live off of junk food and snacks. With this being said, Terry and I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Sometimes, we spend up to eight hours a day cooking. We really enjoyed our job until one day when my kitchen air conditioner decided to stop working in the middle of July. Terry is no small woman, and she simply couldn’t take the heat. I tried my hardest to work through it, but both Terry and I found ourselves taking frequent breaks and not getting done what we had planned. My husband tried to repair the air conditioner, but it was not a simple fix. We ended up calling an HVAC technician to fix it. Fortunately, the HVAC technician was able to repair our air conditioner, and Terry and I were back to cooking with more enthusiasm than ever before.
