You think you know yourself pretty well after 27 years of living with…yourself.

And then all it takes is one Saturday morning long run to throw your whole psyche out of whack.

All of a sudden you’re running around the kitchen throwing every fruit, vegetable, and maybe even an herb or two into your food processor.

And calling it soup.

Cold soup.

Like it ain’t no thang.

(It’s a thang.)

Cold soups have always intrigued me in theory, but I’ve yet to find many that really compel me to grab a bowl and start slurping.

Until, apparently, now.

This peach watermelon gazpacho is refreshingly sweet, with a hint of spice, and a dollop of feta crema on top – perfect for when you’re slightly dehydrated, potentially a bit delirious, and unraveling the mysteries of your subconscious.

I have to admit that in all this self-discovery, it was definitely comforting to know that my love of cheeseΒ is fairly unshakable.

Which is to say, the feta crema is a must.

The icing on the soup, so to speak.

You might even learn something new about yourself while slurping it.

(Consider yourself warned.)
