Rhubarb Soup with Strawberry Ice Cream


I had a wonderful Mother' day yesterday.
My daughter surprised me with two wonderful gifts and a home made card. Yeah she will be 17 yrs in this jully, still she makes a card for me instead of buying one which I think so so sweet of her. And I have all the cars in a special box which she has made for me .

If you scroll down you will se the gifts she came me , I don't know who was more pleased by the choice of gift she or I, as you should have seen her face while I was opening up the gift.
And then after a while she came with a proud smile and asked me again what I thought about her gift :-)

Aparently she knows her mom well as she bought for me food related things and hubby bought abhuge bocquet of flower for me for the special day too.

Now to the recipe, Last week when i went to the market i saw this wonderfully fresh Rhubarb that I coudn't help myself , I had to buy them.
So I tried something chich I have not made with Rubarb and that is this soup, it was really refreshing and delicous.


Home Made card which she made for me, first page is for the noises and shoutings which comes from my kitchen when i am busy as i have this habbit of dropping utensils, cups etc and breaking them :-)




Apero sticks


Egg whisker


Flowers from hubby dear

Ingridients:
500 gm Rhubarb cut in thick blocks.
250 ml sweet white wine
125 gm sugar
250 gm strawberris in pieces
4 ball of strawberry ice cream here is my home made recipe

1. Bring to boil the 2/3 rhubarb with wine and sugar. Lower the fire and cook it for 20 minutes.

2. Sieve the mixture and then add the rest of the rhubarb ( cut this a bit finer) and set aside for 5 minutes.

3. Divide the strawberries in 4 soup plate pour the rhubar soup mixture and top with a ball of strawberry ice cream.
Enjoy this summery delicous sweet soup for a dessert.

Angie's Recipes said...

wow! Is your daughter in a drawing class after school? She is really awesome at drawing the mom-cook figure......wonderful!
Your husband is really thoughtful. Usually men don't take Mother's Day as the day that they need to buy flowers for the wives.
Is the strawberry ice kinda payback to him being so considerate? ;-)
