This summer has been incredibly sultry since the beginning of May. The temperature stays above 30°C and because I’m suffering from the heat I have hardly been able to do anything. I tried to find an air conditioner from stores and online but they were all sold-out.
Fortunately when I shared my desperate situation on Facebook, one of my friends contacted me immediately to tell me that she had a device not in use. Ever since my life has been so sweet. No matter how hot the weather is outside there now is a place where even my toes are almost freezing.
However, you have to eat, whether the day is hot or not. We have had almost all our meals out of doors after 9PM because before that it is too hot, even in our garden, to make food there. However Smetana herring is a perfect food even on sultry days, it always tastes good. It is very easy to make and you need to use your stove only to cook eggs and potatoes. Smetana herring should be eaten cold, as you perhaps already knew, and therefore it’s a suitable meal for a hot day. Served with potatoes and some fresh salad.
