Too Humid for Cooking: Takeout from Valentino's

Our new apartment does not fare well on humid days.  It sucks the energy out of you the moment you walk in the door.  We could leave the air conditioner on all day to have a climate-controlled environment, but really...without pets or someone in the apartment that's wasteful.  We'll figure it out in the sweltering months ahead.  Turning the oven or stove on was not an option, so I sent my boyfriend out on a mission while I worked on a research project.
Here's what he returned with.
 Valentino's Salad ($8.95).
Fresh mozzarella slices with tomato, roasted tomato, yellow pepper and basil.  This would be so much better if tomatoes were in season.
 Hercules Salad ($8.95).
Romaine lettuce, roasted tomato, fresh tomato, feta cheese.  Mixing the two salads together made them better.
Valentino's Special Large ($22.95).
It's massive.  Topped with pepperoni, meatballs and sausage with peppers, onions and olives.  Feels more like an eating challenge.  It's so large, we had enough for two people for two meals.
