By Diane Dragan from original

If you are like me, then maybe you too had a moment about a week ago at your local supermarket, when you paused with your hand on a package of chicken thighs. “You know,” you might have said to yourself, “I think it’s too hot to turn on the oven now, until September.” And then you might have had a tiny moment of panic, like, okay… now what do we eat?
