Time travel

(Minestrone soup. February 2008.)

I am forced to go back in time and through my photo archives to come up with a picture of food for today. I haven’t taken anything new worth posting so this will have to suffice.

I don’t typically think of July as soup season unless it involves a chilled soup, gazpacho being one of my favorites. It’s not gazpacho season either. The tomatoes, cucumber, and peppers won’t be coming in locally for a few more weeks.

The garden lettuces are growing like mad.  I had to give some away.  It was either that or we’d have to double up on eating salads.  As it is, M and I have been eating salads for lunch and dinner.  Good stuff, but I’m not sure I’m ready for mixed greens for breakfast.
