So for the start of summer I have gone for a nice light main course which won’t take too long to cook in the heat. It gets very hot here in Portugal from July onwards even with air conditioning.
So with the heat in mind my recipes can be cooked out side on a BBQ, the main course anyway. For pudding this month I have gone for a Lemon shortbread with some ice cream on the side or a bit of cream.
The shortbread can be cooked on a morning when it is coolest, yes you will have to get up early to do that, I don’t like getting up early when it is hot but sometimes you have too.
