After all of the excitement at work yesterday*, experimental cooking at home proved to be SuperRelaxing!
First, I made the Raspberry-Lime Vodka Infusion, using about a pint of raspberries and 2 sliced limes. See:
It seems to be infusing quickly and should be done in a few days. Hopefully, it will be delicious.
Then, I cooked dinner. First, I made a slightly modified version of this soup from epicurious: Chilled Cucumber and Avocado Soup. It was super easy. I omitted the coriander** and the 1/2 cup of ice***. As the soup was chilling, I boiled some linguini and tossed it with butter, olive oil and herbs from the garden, rosemary, basil, and oregano.
The soup was creamy and delicious, although a bit on the tart side. I believe I may have added too much yogurt. Next time, I may blend up a chili pepper with it to see what that does (other than make it spicy).
In other news, no one seems to be able to guess what is going to happen as the end of pottery class approacheth, so I'll give you a hint: It starts with a C and ends with -alicious. Let the rampant speculations BEGIN!
More later. *smooches*
*Haha! Who am I kidding? There was no excitement at work yesterday.
**For one, I didn't have any. And, for two, I can never remember if coriander and cilantro are the same thing or not. And, for three, I wasn't in the mood for something cilantro-flavored.
***Simply because adding ice seemed weird.
