This is the first year I’ve taken part in a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) share. There is a bit of a learning curve in how to use the abundance of what is in-season. It comes in waves, lots of lettuce and spinach, then lots of parsley and zucchini, then cucumbers and so on. Right now I’m stuck with a lot of zucchini and need to plan my meals around using what we’ve been given. I do love zucchini so it’s not much of a chore, but it can get tricky trying to remember all of my zucchini recipes and where to find them or inventing new things. Here’s a new invention:
This soup is, and probably will always be, the best soup I’ve ever made. It’s light. It’s frothy. It’s fresh. It’s in-season. It’s perfect. It’s the best of the best. It’s the best thing to come out of my kitchen, ever.
The only down side is that my husband hates cold soups. He hasn’t even tasted this soup! But he knows he hates it. I think it’s something to do with being raised on boarding school food; whatever the case I wish he would just open his heart and try a spoon full of this soup because I know he would love it. What does he love? He loves 5-star restaurants and fancy food…this soup fits that bill perfectly! If you’re having fancy guests over, MAKE THIS SOUP! You’ll impress their pants right off! Men, if you want to impress a lady…make this soup and you’re definitely getting lucky tonite! Read the rest of this entry
This is one of my favorite summer recipes; it’s quick and easy and looks great in a glass bowl. I just made this for our neighborhood 4th of July party last week and – if I dare say so myself – it was the best thing there (though I am comparing this to two platters of chicken wings and a few bags of chips).
Sometime during our crazy June heat wave I decided there was no way I was going to turn on the stove or the oven…but we still needed to eat dinner. What to do? Not another night of takeout and I was so matted down with sweat that I didn’t want to go out, so I created a yummy cold soup with what we had on hand.
7 ingredients! Tomatoes. Cilantro. OJ. Agave. V8. White Pepper. Salt. All in the blender. Easy, easy. Read the rest of this entry
