Kitchen Colors

The spinach is bolting in the heat.  It's been in the 90s.  We discovered a wonderful new spinach soup recipe and have eaten it several times in different variations.  Last night we added garlic scapes which was a delightful addition.  It's probably the prettiest soup I've ever seen.  A bowl of liquid emerald.
We harvested the first strawberries today.  Well, technically the first berries were picked last week, but this morning we finally harvested a sizable enough quantity that they actually made it into the house.   There really is nothing quite like a just-picked berry.
Both are so bright and colorful.  They are almost as pretty as they are yummy.

    1. I am, as we speak, writing a post about the recipe as I've tweaked it and varied it. However, if you want to get crackin' before I get that finished it was the Cream of Spinach Soup from the Vitamix cookbook that was used as the template. I added herbs, different veg, tried wilted vs raw spinach, etc. But, that Vitamix recipe was the jumping off point.
