Cold tomato and orange soup

Yesterday we had rain here at Coin Perdu in Corréze, where we are restoring our mountain home. So last night asked for something soupy. Because we are temporarily living in the barn for the next year or two, I don’t have an oven, only a stove. So a soup is quite easy. And quick. I am always joyful when hearing the word quick.

    Both the food in your pictures and the words in your blog nourish the viewer.

    So… you are renovating, traveling, cooking, drawing, painting, photographing, writing, blogging (2 blogs as far as I know) all with great talent, and still have time to leave nice comments! Must be that interesting twist of orange in the gazpacho.
