Life has a way of keeping me busy these days. I didn’t mean to stay away for so long. I hope all of you are doing well. Not too much news-worthy happenings here at the farmhouse, just the day to day living.
The weather has been very hot & humid, but we finally got a good rain a couple of days ago. That means the humidity is even worse, but we just have to deal with it and move on. I am so ready for Fall and the cooler weather to come. Fall is one of life’s wonderful blessings.
The other weekend, we had a somewhat cool day. Hubby was home doing yard work and fiddling around outside. I made squash soup and grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch. If you love yellow summer squash, you will love this soup.
Here’s the recipe:
~2 (15 ounce) cans stewed squash (drained)
~1 cup skim milk
~1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
~salt & pepper to taste
~sour cream for garnish
Makes 4 big bowls of soup
Put all ingredients into Vitamix or food processor except sour cream. Process until very smooth. Can be warmed in the microwave or on the stove top. This recipe also works with other cooked veggies, such as broccoli and cauliflower. I like to serve with a dollop of sour cream on top or sprinkle with a little extra cheese.
My Vitamix cooks the soup while it is processing, so it’s ready in six minutes without any added steps. I didn’t really believe this when we first bought the Vitamix, but it really does. It also makes the very best fruit smoothies.
In other news, my granddaughter started soccer last week. So far she is enjoying it, although she is very tired after practice. Her first game will be coming up soon. I hope the weather will cooperate.
I guess it’s time to get busy again.
