Hot in the house and steak Quesadillas

I spent kind of a hot night here at the lake place, as the air conditioner worked and worked to cool this house down.  We don't completely turn off the AC here but we set the thermostat at 90 degrees while we are not here.

Years ago in our former house we would turn the AC off when we left.   When we would come back on Friday night, it would be over 100 in the house and we could not get cooled down.  We had high speed fans that would evacuate the heat into the night air.  But when we started to have the candles melt onto the coffee table and the lamp shades turn all yellow from being cooked as the house was all shut up, we needed to do something.

That something was to set the AC on 90 and let it run.  So it was exactly 90 when we arrived, and it was over 100 outside so we just set the temp back into the 70s, and it runs continuous for many hours while it catches back up.  It was about 2 AM before the AC cycled, and I was still awake.

Today our sons and their families arrived and swimming and lake activities abounded.

Steak quesadillas were the menu item for this evening's meal.  The steak was grilled on the gas grill, and the tortillas were grilled on the indoor pancake grill with shredded cheese melting out of the steak onto your plate.  They were topped with a sour cream and salsa mixture making a cool and creamy tomato flavor with cilantro and onion seasonings.  There weren't any left over.........

Have a good Labor Day Holiday weekend......
