Now that you can measure the temperature, you could do other things with it like displaying a message when the temperature exceeds some limit.

You could also use the project as a temperature logger, using Python to write the readings to a file, each accompanied by a time stamp. If the temperatures are written one per line, with a comma between the time and the reading, then you will be able to import it directly into a spreadsheet and produce charts from the data.
