Last week's food

Last week I tried several new recipes. I was on a soup kick because I thought it would be easy to make. (sorry for the lack of pictures)

This first recipe was easy, but it sure did take a long time. My carrots wouldn't cook!!  The soup was delicious, however.
Roasted Summer Vegetable Soup

I also tried a guacamole soup from a friend's high school recipe book. This one was delicious and so easy! I smashed up half an avocado in the bottom of a bowl and mixed in some lemon juice and garlic salt.  I then boiled chicken broth and added it to the bowl with some shredded chicken and cilantro.  So tasty!

The last recipe I tried was for dessert for my life group.  I used this pioneer woman recipe: Deep Dish Fruit Pizza.  I wasn't as impressed with it as I thought I would be. I liked the look of it better than the taste.  The cookie part was rather dry (and there was so much cookie!). I also thought that the recipe made 2x the icing I needed.  The icing and fruit were delicious. I think the icing would make a great fruit dip or spread. And if I were to try this again, I would probably try making individual fruit pizzas from individual sugar cookies (so there would be less cookie). I also might try a different cookie recipe to see if I could keep it from being so dry.
