Have a group of women that have met for approximately 27 years each month to celebrate birthdays that fall in that month. I had the lunch here and worked hard to have a varied menu. Could not have made the day without the serving prowess of Jean. She was invaluable.
Made up a cold soup that I want to share with you. It was wonderful (I thought). Will title it "Cold Creamy Tomato Soup"
Cooked in a pan with 3 T of olive oil-two large onions chopped, 2 carrots chopped, and 6 cloves of garlic chopped, 10 leaves of basil, until onions became translucent. In my Blend Tek I blended two pounds of tomatoes and a couple of 8 oz cans of spicy tomato juice with the mixture of onions, garlic, carrots, and basil. Then combined and blended with a pint of heavy cream. Salt and pepper to taste.
Topped with a dab of sour cream mixed with who knows what, and a basil leaf.
