10 hours of sleep later, I'm feeling much more ambitious! So I ran a bunch of errands, did a bunch of shopping, and I'm ready for this weekend's projects: cucumber soup, turkey meatball soup, and chicken pot pies. It's a lot of work, but once it's all done (and I'll be freezing most of it), I won't have to cook very much for the rest of the summer!
I decided to tackle the cucumber soup first since it seemed to be the least amount of prep. Basically you cut a bunch of stuff up...
...then attack it all with an immersion blender. Tada - soup! It's pretty tasty - it's nice and cool at first, then has a bit of a kick at the end.
I was feeling pretty proud of myself, but I couldn't take too much of a break...if I'm going to get everything done this weekend I need to keep moving. On to the chicken stew for the pot pies!
