It was an awfully hot summer this year in Japan.

It has not ended yet, but I hear the songs of insects at night, and they are telling me that the summer will be gone soon.

It's a kind of relief, but at the same time it brings me the melancholy state of mind. 

May be I should say it is the mixture of feeling of lonliness and nostalgia.

But this unsteady feeling creeps in only in the evening, the day time is still the summer, red, hot  and scorching summer !

The cicadas are singing at the top of their lungs.

So for now, I have to enjoy the soon leaving summer vegetables.

If it is an average summer, I do not go for much of the chilled dishes, but my appetite goes to them rather than warm food this year, so I cook the food on the stove early in the morning, keep them in the fridge and take them out to eat straight away during day time. 

(Can you imagine how hot it is when the tempreture often goes up beyond 40℃?)

My favorite chilled dishes are, firstly, Edamame/green soy beans,

Hiyayakko/ fresh uncooked tofu,

Mushinasu/ steamed eggplant,

and Tomato salad.

All are so simple to cook.

Another item is " Ratatouille". 

It is a french dish but is popular to cook at home using the summer vegetables in Japan.

I like it because it is a dish with variety kinds of summer vegetables, tasty and nice to eat chilled.   

It also goes well with rice, pasta and bread.

We can make a big amount of it and eat it in three days, enjoying different forms of dishes.
