There was a time when my sister was on a bed and breakfast kick thinking that she wanted to open one so she had a knack of eating at restaurants and recreating the food that she ate in her own kitchen. It always amazed me at how she would pick apart a meal and find all the wonderful tastes that were combined to create such a delicious meal and then make it her own. This recipe goes way back and came from one of her creations originally called "Victoria' Monterey Eggs". She gave me a hand written note with no date but I want to say this was somewhere around 1998. I've made this a few times and each time a little different depending on the ingredients I've had on hand which is why you will see so many ingredients listed as "optional". I love the flexibility of this recipe and that each time it comes out fantastic. My husband loves it because he can have immediate breakfast to go in the morning for work if I make this on a Sunday. Serves 6.

Anti inflammation magic recovery soup...drink it cold, hot, for breakfast lunch or dinner...
Fresh Harvest seasonal veggies inspired soup... I can't get enough of the Georgia local Farmers picks where I don't have to decide what to buy. The produce arrives and I get to figure out what to do with it. So much fun and exciting. When the tumeric root showed up I wasn't quite sure what to do with it but then it dawned on me that this would be the most perfect ingredient to kick off the perfect soup that will aid in our constant fight to balance our bodies and reduce inflammation. If you haven't heard or looked into this and are struggling with disease, allergies or just plain jane sickies, your body has inflammation that needs to be addressed. Your body is only inflamed because it is doing all it knows to combat a poor nutrition diet. Get your inflammation under control and see the power your body has now to fight off infection, disease and keep your allergies at bay. Take control now so your body can do what it is designed to do. Eliminate the culprit...inflammation, and start living again!

Who would have thought that this California turned Georgia girl would ever like Okra...why in the world would anyone like that weird slimy looking veg from the south??? Thats what I always thought and from talking with some friends I'm not the only one. But I'm serious when I tell you I have found a new love and can't stop eating the "slimy stuff". Haha!! Although don't worry when you cook it like this there is no slime
Once again Fresh Harvest has introduced me to a new seasonal veggie in my weekly basket and given me the little nug in the right direction on the proper fixins of this interesting looking veggie. If any of you bake your broccoli in the oven this is basically the same exact process of drizzling with olive oil, sprinkling with salt and pepper and baking until done. Oh so good!
Here's what you'll want to get and do...

If I haven't mentioned the amazing Farmers Market delivered to your doorstep service...shame on me. Fresh Harvest is by far the best company I have come across in Atlanta to not only provide the most amazing hand picked LOCAL seasonal fruits and veggies but to deliver it directly to your doorstep in their reusable "baskets". They pack it all perfectly in plastic storage bins on ice blocks so that if it arrives before you get home no worries. You can also add items easily by customizing your basket with things like local Georgia cows milk (yep the kind with the cream on top...nothing better), lemons, bananas, pickled okra...and the list goes on. I love the element of surprise to see what the picks of the week are and how it is teaching me to know what grows naturally at different times of the year.
