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.
