I always anticipate cooking with fresh herbs in the summer-time. The smells and tastes of just-picked herbs are simply incomparable.
One of our recent lunch classes at The Good Cooking Store was “Cooking with Fresh Herbs.” We chose a selection of herby recipes—some of which require no cooking at all!
Here is a refreshing summer soup which we made in the class. It is a great way to expand cucumbers from your garden into more of your diet. And it will cool you down on a warm summer night!
I eat very boring breakfasts and pretty much the same thing every day. Coffee, a naked bagel, and an unpeeled apple. I really can’t explain this other than I like it.
Right now I’m treating myself to big bagel variety—either whole wheat or whole grain. I used to eat only sesame bagels, but then one day I had enough of them. Plus I got tired of worrying about whether a stray seed had stuck to my lip or teeth and that I would be the last to know.
Even when we’re away, I go out looking for a good bagel and apple. It’s comforting, I guess, and sorta healthy (okay, if the bagels aren’t too big). Which as I calculate gives me license to eat ice cream before bed.
