Years and years ago the food editor to the Minneapolis Star Tribune was this wonderful down-to-earth woman named Mary Hart. Sometime during the late 1970s...I actually believe it was September, 1979, she published this recipe for "Summer Salad Soup." From the moment I made it that long ago hot summer it has been one of my favorite recipes.
Yesterday as the portable air conditioners struggled to keep my home cool I knew I did not want to be using the stove. So I turned to this old trusted recipe since I knew that its chilly perfection of flavors would be the perfect antidote to the heat. And I was right. Obviously there are leftovers...and I am taking them as my contribution to a Sunday brunch today.
BTW...the recipe is on this blog. Go to the recipe tab and in the search mechanism type in "soup" and from there you should be able to easily find it.
Today's Daily Word was about world peace. It is truly hard to believe...to understand the concept of "world peace" given human history as well as the events of today. Yet I do think of this phrase from a Unity hymn: "Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me." It may seem impossible to change the course of events in this world yet our responsibility is to ourselves...so let's create peace within our hearts and souls. Let us unite with the cumulative power of hearts and souls overflowing with the peace...and the world will change.
