This recipe for Cold Cucumber And Avocado Soup reminds me of my mom. It is not Dave’s favourite, and so I reserve it to make for days he is not home. It is one of the recipes that I could make over and over again.
Yesterday, I posted a recipe for flour tortillas that I made to serve with a cold soup. I love cold soups and this is one of my favourites. With cucumber being so refreshing, it is perfect for hot summer days. Our summer is not over. This morning it was 22°C/71.6°F at 7am and I always have these ingredients in my fridge, so I know what I will be making for lunch today. It is one of those recipes that is super easy to make and perfect for when you want a quick meal. As I said, this is not Dave’s favourite so I tend to make the soup for myself when I am home alone. This means going home for lunch during the working week, which I really don’t mind doing when it is so hot. Work is impossible in the heat as I cannot concentrate. We do not have air conditioning in our office and the sun streams in through the windows. My desk faces the sun so you can imagine just how hot it is.
