Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

From Fran Earle
Ontario, Canada

After I first met my husband-to-be, I had planned a lovely holiday meal. I had shopped til the fridge was bursting and on that morning, just as I was starting to prepare for dinner, my darling insisted that we drive 100 miles to Niagara Falls to see the Christmas lights - on the condition that we return in time to still prepare dinner that evening (family was coming over), I nervously agreed to go. The Christmas lights were spectacular, the day was sheer heaven, and we did indeed return in time to prepare what ended up being one of our most delicious, elegant and most memorable meals - Michael rolled up his sleeves and helped me put everything together with such eagerness that the dinner was perfect - not one guest ever suspected that I hadn't been in the kitchen slaving all day. This soup has since evolved to become "THE" soup and whenever we have it, we remember again the warmth of that very special day and the budding love that showed its face then.

Harvesting and Using Summer Squash

Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
