[Sca-cooks] OT: Do we need cold-food recipes for Drakey and Co.?

Hullo, the list!

I'm taking a break from the annual Rendering Unto Caesar (this year  
they'll owe us, big time, hence the early filing), and I've just been  
out on the balcony with caffeine and my daily El Ropo (OK, a Sol  
Cubano Connecticut-wrapped), enjoying the sun and watching the world  
go by. It's a balmy 19F, -7.2C here in Queens. While I'm not normally  
one to attract statistically rare accidents, I did manage to get my  
hand briefly stuck to the iron balcony rail, like the kid in the Jean  
Shepherd story who gets his tongue stuck to the lamppost (or was it a  
railroad track?)

So, I was already in a Drakey state of mind when I came back inside,  
to find waiting for me photos sent me by a friend, who has relatives  
in Adelaide, where it is expected to go up to 92F, 33C, and where a  
koala had just strolled up to a family's back porch, looking for a  
drink, and when presented with a pail of cool water, dove right in.

So, who's got recipes for a nice chilled fruit or cucumber soup, maybe  
a cold poached fish in a vinegar sauce? My current project seems to be  
centering on joutes with boiled bacon, which is probably more  
appropriate for here...
