We had a relaxing few days of camping at Indian Lake.
The weather was pretty hot and humid but we could spend time outside in the shade looking at the lake or in the air conditioned trailer. We did a lot of reading. Relaxing.
Today, we were glad to be heading home to the garden that had been enduring the 90 degree heat on its own for the past few days. The Bearded One harvested tomatoes, okra, broccoli (those April plants keep on producing) and cucumbers.
While we were camping, we marked recipes that sounded good to us. So, tonight with the bounty from the garden, we tried Cold Blender Tomato Soup. It was great…tremendous…terrific…AND EASY. Granted I think my Vitamix made it easier (didn’t need to peel and seed the tomatoes…and the result was very smooth) but it just calls for a blender. We had it with homemade tortilla chips spiced with a bit of chili powder and salt. Very nice.
