Still too darn hot---
Any time it's over 100 degrees I melt. Lighting the stove on a day like this seems criminal. Here's something that I find really refreshing. Normally served as an antojito, or a snack before dinner, I think it makes a terrific breakfast too.
Slice a watermelon into manageable chunks. Sprinkle with salt. Squeeze a bit of Mexican (or Key) lime juice, add a very light sprinkle of cayenne. It's an eye and a taste-bud opener!
add peeled and sliced segments of orange. Delightful contrast.
Or skip the watermelon and do this with oranges and peeled, cubed or julienned jicama. If your jicama is dry and starchy, it's too old. You want something succulent and fresh.
