ASPARAGUS SALAD WITH TOMATO VINAIGRETTE

The Professor and I are participating in Verizon’s ‘Savy Gourmet’ program and have been having fun testing Motorola’s new XYBoard (ZIE-board). We met a group of Midwest friends in Chicago last month to get a few lessons on what this new tablet can do. We’ll be talking about the XYBoard tablet in future posts but now I want to share my take on a particular salad we enjoyed at a top-secret dinner, held in a top-secret place.

CREAMY TOMATO SOUP – NO SOUP NAZI HERE!


Musical pairing – It’s So Easy by Linda Ronstadt

I almost always make a pot of soup each week to tuck in the refrigerator and have on hand for lunches and/or suppers; kind of my backup plan for those times when I don’t have a plan and I’m too brain-dead to come up with a plan and we’re both hungry.  I do tend to lean towards broth soups that rely heavily on vegetables or beans like minestrone, chili, broccoli, vegetable or white bean with kale; but there are times when I just want something a teeny bit more decadent like potato, bisque, or this creamy tomato soup.
