There are two things I look forward to in the summertime: Farmers Markets and Great Tasting Tomatoes. It seems like I can’t seem to get enough of either. I try to go to the Farmers Market as often as possible and I can’t resist the tomatoes (both buying them and taking pictures of them.) So it’s natural that I would make Gazpacho with them. Well, maybe it would not be natural to anyone else, but it was natural to me.
Mushroom Soup! I love mushrooms and I adore mushroom soup, but I have never had homemade mushroom soup. I have memories of my mom making my favorite meal of chicken thighs cooked with a can of Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom soup mixed with a little mayo, herbs, maybe some Worcestershire Sauce and Parmesan Cheese. Add some green beans and white rice and I was in heaven. My mom would let me and my brother pick what we wanted for our Special Birthday Meal and I always chose this chicken. When my kids were small they didn’t like mushrooms so that whole meal was a non-starter. Even now, the male children still do not like mushrooms.
