This super easy recipe for a summer soup with cucumber, goat cheese, and mint comes from Marmiton, a French recipe site. For those anglophones out there:
- 1 cucumber, peeled
- 8 ounces of fresh goat cheese
- 8 ounces plain yogurt
- Handful of mint leaves
- 1 small garlic clove, crushed (optional)
- Salt and paper to taste
Blend ingredients together and chill for 1-2 hours before serving. Bon appetit!
Missing the Dupont Circle farmers’ market in DC and inspired by my Choate friend’s blog highlighting her successful visit there this fall, I convinced my FH and his brother and mum to go with me to a farm in Burgundy this fall. Turns out that there’s a great one just down the road from their home in Auxerre.
Next on the list: joining a local CSA. There’s one two metro stops away from us in Lyon that we’re planning to check out before our five-year anniversary dinner tomorrow night. That’s right, folks - tomorrow marks five years since our first date. I don’t know any better way to celebrate!
