What's your fix when the Heat Index tops 95 degrees?
Thought it would be fun to see what you come up with. My normally robust appetite usually declines significantly in the heat. But one has to eat, right?
My fix today: Shrimp avocado cocktail, leftover grilled asparagus, chips with salsa and tomatillo pico de gallo (courtesy of El Burrito Mercado), and a Gin and Tonic. Extra Ice. Tall Glass.

Banh Xeo -- Vietnamese rice-flour pancake filled with shrimp, pork, and sprouts -- from an Eat Street joint (like Hien Deli) or University Ave place (like Hoa Bien or Ngon). That's summer for me!
Some Vietnamese iced coffee would be perfect with this, but I can't have coffee, so I'd have a fizzy limeade instead.

Skip the dinner and head straight for dessert: a float at Pumphouse Creamery with the new rhubarb soda and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.....
