Spring Pea & Mint Gazpacho

SPRING FABULOUS SPRING HAS SPRUNG!

What a perfect time to throw a luncheon outdoors. My darling friend Glenda Kravetz who is the HOSTESS WITH THE MOSTEST gave a lovely baby shower for our good friend Kathy and her expecting daughter Ashley.

With the help of The Kitchen catering the party, the rest of the perfect touches were then added by our hostess. One of the most delicious and FAB chilled soups was served and I wanted to share the recipe with you.

For a perfectly Fab baby shower gift anytime of year go to TUMMY THYME, a fresh baby food delivery service.
