Cantaloupe Soup? You better believe it!

September 9, 2010

Cantaloupe AKA Melon

I loooove cantaloupe!  It reminds me of tropical times in the Philippines, where they refer to this fruit as “melon”.  Over the weekend, I posted about making a yummy soup that is made from the Community Services Unlimited (CSU) produce bag of fresh vegetables & fruits.  I listed what was in the produce bag & 1 of my Facebook friends told me:

I never thought of adding romaine lettuce or cantaloupe in soup though.

To which I replied:

The cantaloupe was in the produce bag that I bought from the community garden, but I didn’t put it in the soup. That would have tasted interesting LOL.

Well in my Twitter timeline, I saw a re-tweet by @byanygreens:
