Friends & Food

melon_soup_1-scaled1000

Two of my dearest friends came over to my house today, at different times. Neither of them went to the front door. Each came around to the back yard, knowing that I’d be out on the porch this time of year. It’s nice to be understood!

I made some cold summer soups. This one turned out better than I thought it would and benefited quite a bit from spending the night in the fridge so the flavors could marry:

Four cups of honeydew melon chunks
About a cup of basil leaves, picked from pots on the deck
About a half a cup of lime juice
A tablespoon or so of dry sherry
Blend until smooth.

Next time, I may use parsley or rosemary instead of basil.

What are you making to eat this Summer?
