Sorry for slacking over the long 4th weekend, but I'm back with another edition of Sunday Serving. This week Michael and I are celebrating our 11th anniversary and yesterday we splurged and went to Napa for the day. We popped in to the Oxbow Market and had a cheese plate, some great, cheap wine and watched the LA Angels kick the Yankees butt! After grabbing six cupcakes from Kara's (just couldn't decide on less!), we explored downtown Napa. It's really desolate down there, but the restaurants were great. We had a severely hoppy beer at Joe's, then stopped in Angele's for some wine and pomme frites, and last but not least, had pizza at the new Azzurro's. Nice thin crust style, but a little over cooked.Yes, back to this week's recipe: a Chilled Honey Carrot Soup. This soup does require some cooking, but if you get up early while it's still cool and make it, when it's a zillion degrees later on in the afternoon or early evening this will be a delicious, light and refreshing alternative to firing up the grill or turning on the stove or oven. Enjoy!
