A Pretty Meal

Brunch with my girls before we went to see "Wicked":

That's Melon Soup with Sour Cream in the glass, and the plate holds a summer salad with Butter Lettuce, Raspberries, and Walnuts (I forgot the crumbled goat cheese). We also had Salmon en croute, which didn't make it into the picture, but was a delicious golden brown.

And: a Peach Dutch Baby. So good!

Summer Treats

I just finished a morning snack: Spicy Melon Soup. The recipe was in the newspaper, but it couldn't be simpler: just cut up the melon of your choice (cantaloupe, honeydew, or any of the myriad variations), and blend it up with a teaspoon of tobasco sauce.

Serve with a dollop of sour cream.

I'm going to eat all my melons this way, from NOW ON.

It's about 54 calories for a half cup, and that includes a teaspoon of sour cream.

Now I'm going to experiment with Paletas (fruit or veggie ice treats).
