[Menu Thoughts] Cold

Make the most of summer and avoid sweating in the kitchen by making heat-free foodstuffs to eat chilled.

Gazpacho: Summer soup eaten cold. 

1kg of tomatoes
4 inches of cucumber
a handful of chives
a clove of garlic
a couple of glugs of olive oil
a splash of white wine vinegar
Salt and pepper

Blend and fully chill.

Coffee ice lollies: these ones without milk, though milk reportedly works well too. 

Make a mug of strong and sweet coffee, then freeze in moulds.

By far my favourite of these frozen stuffs.

Summer Cooler Cubes:  a weird combination of savoury ingredients to put in a glass of water? A very refreshing combination.
