I have always been partial to eggs, some years I can eat them and other years not. At the moment I can eat eggs, but only if I get them close-by our weekend house from Sepascot Home Farm upstate NY in Rhinebeck. The eggs from the Farm are true-to-life produced by the happiest chickens, who are not caged and are free to roam the property during the day eating naturally. They are very happy little chickens! Personally, I can only eat eggs if they are baked or hard-boiled. Weird I know. I cannot do fried eggs and the smell of a cooking omelette can near make me sick.
Many years ago, during a summer in New York, I was introduced to cold soups. Yes, with the popular tomato-based Gazpacho Soup. I will admit, it look me awhile to get used too – cold soup – but now I actually look forward to it in the warmer months when Summer comes around.
Today, wanting to try something that my (almost 3-year-old) could help me with I came up with a Chilled Avocado Soup. You can tell from his face in the photo below how much he LOVED being involved. I mean, when I turned that blender on it was priceless. Of course, he wasn’t interested in helping with the dishes…. But that is a whole other story!
