With the temperature nudging 40 degrees Celsius we scuttled into the cool, shuttered house after lunch on the terrace. Rick doesn’t seem to understand that he has to stay inside out of the heat this afternoon.
Earlier in the morning we picked a whole load of tomatoes from the potager so Paul decided to make a batch of soup. He put a mix of different tomatoes, basil, garlic, onions, chillies, oregano and thyme into a pan and roasted for thirty minutes.
After cooling he put it through a food mill and voila - delicious tomato soup.
“That would make a nice Bloody Mary,” I commented after tasting.
My wish is Paul’s command.

I need to get one of those food mills. Do they take away all the seeds / skins? -JennReplyDelete
It's a really useful piece of kit. Ours has three different size sieve plates and the finest gets rid of all the small seeds and skins.Delete
I'm not a tomato soup fan, but a Bloody Mary would be quite nice.ReplyDelete
I think you would like this soup too, it's nothing like the canned stuff. Delicious hot or chilled.Delete
I would like a Bloody Mary here too.ReplyDelete
I felt a bit wicked drinking it in the middle of the afternoon!Delete
Mmm...Bloody Mary...that sounds great!ReplyDelete
Bloody Marys all round!Delete
Poor old Paul - slaving away while you put your feet up and sip Bloody Marys. Do you make him wear a pinafore too?ReplyDelete
That would make a delicious addition to any picnic. Thinks - must add vodka to my shopping list.ReplyDelete
Yes, it would be great for a picnic Pat.Delete
I so love a good Bloody Mary on a relaxing Sunday afternoon.....Your "Blog Headline" today also reminded me of this yummy, refreshing "Bloody Mary Salad" ...I make this a lot on hot summer days...It's a great way to use your garden fresh tomatoes and it's so tasty, cool, refreshing on a warm summer day....And, it's super easy to throw together...Here's the link where I found the recipe: https://www.framedcooks.com/2012/08/bloody-mary-salad.html......Hope you'll give it a try! :)ReplyDelete
Sounds delicious, thanks for the link.Delete
If you have lots of tomatoes try gazpacho-deeeelicious!!ReplyDelete
Love gazpacho on a hot day.Delete
Mine are all being bottled; other than a few for lunch. With this heat I may sun-dry a few as well.ReplyDelete
Our medium sized tomatoes for sun drying aren't ripe yet! A shame because this weather would dry them in seconds.Delete
Am I the only one here that doesn't like bloody Mary but, I do like soup and this one that Paul made with fresh ingredients sounds delicious.ReplyDelete
Greetings Maria x
Haha, the soup is just as good.Delete
Extra wilting stick of celery and you must get near your Five-a-Day. Best idea for a tom glut yet.ReplyDelete
Don't need the celery for my five-a-day, I think I'm into double figures at this time of year!Delete
Reminds me of the bloody Mary soup I had in that restaurant, that was yummy :PReplyDelete
You can make it with tequila too.Delete
