Lighter than light and completely refreshing, this creamy no-cook cucumber soup makes a splendid side dish for summertime meals.
Nothing clears the mind like a fresh walk in the forest. Sun, rain, rain and sun again. We are bathed in warmth and chilly showers.
The soup is made from small balls of minced meat & rice, usually using a mixture of beef and pork, but can be prepared with any type of minced meat.
The fried dough of various types is ubiquitous nationwide (and around the world), whether made at home or acquired at one of the countless county fairs.
Saturday before Easter. The whole world seems to be at a standstill waiting, hoping, dreaming. It is a lovely tender-green spring day and the birds are full of songs.
It is a few hours now that I have taken the Easter Bread out of the oven, but the kitchen still smells of vanilla, chocolate and orange. My husband says that it smells like home.
