THIS WEEK'S WEATHER OR NOT
YIKES! hot! hot! hot!
Happy First Day of Summer!
STUFF TO CONSIDER:
DUEL: All that's missing are the frites, but that's no excuse not to visit this great Belgian-style brewery and taproom.
- Two locations: In ABQ at 606 Central, and Santa Fe: 1352 Rufina Circle. I thought the Saison was excellent and try their Rueben!
SANDIA SALOON: food and drink option at the WHOLE FOODS on Wyoming. I was a non-believer when I first read about it. Afterall, you shop, you buy, and you go home. Right? WRONG.
- They have Buck-a-Shuck raw oysters - recommend the Wellfleet.
- The Street Tacos come in 3 varieties - calabacitas, beef and pork - ALL good
- Chopped Cobb Salad - really tasty
- Beers and Cider: a great selection. Recommend: Ska Operandi Mandarina, O'dell's APA, Boxing Beer Cider

NOTE TO DIARY:
Summer Soup Recipe - couldn't be easier: Step away from the stove. All you need to make no-cook cold soups is a refrigerator and a blender.
1 pound peeled large beets, cut into large chunks (3 cups)
1/4 cup chopped trimmed scallions (about 4)
3 cups lowfat buttermilk 1
1/4 teaspoons coarse salt
Puree beets, scallions, buttermilk, and salt in a blender until smooth.
Refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour.
Stir well, and swirl in more buttermilk if desired before serving.
