Blueberry Mood

I have a lot of cookbooks and I cannot remember all the recipes there, but sometimes some of them stick in your mind. Maybe it's the picture, maybe it's the ingredients or technique, but a recipe just stays with you. And this is exactly what happened a few days ago. I was at a supermarket and I saw this deal with 3 pints of blueberries for 5$. I just knew that I had to buy them and make that Blueberry Pie.

But first I had some fresh blueberries with my breakfast.

I'm back...

Ok, it's been long. Too long. Almost a year to be exact. But I am back and I hope to be back for good. I have excuses as to why wasn't posting, but they are too long and... well... not really good excuses. So, I am back and I'll start with a nice and refreshing cold soup.

I only discovered cold soups a few weeks ago and I can't get enough of them. They are so versatile, light and tasty. They don't require you spending time chopping, sauteeing, simmering. And they usually come together only in a few minutes. What can I say? I love them!!

This recipe is an adaptation from a recipe-ad I found in yesterday's Metro newspaper. I knew right away that it's something I'd enjoy. I changed some ingredients and voila I had a wonderful cold soup.
