Book Review: Powerful Thinking

I received a review copy of this book; all opinions expressed are mine.

“Are you completely satisfied with every aspect of your life?

Chilled Cucumber Soup

Chilled soups are perfect for summer! And if you like cucumbers, you’ll want to try this one! It also has Greek yogurt, green onions, fresh dill, and parsley in it. Lemon juice and salt give the flavor in this soup a little punch and I also added some garlic powder to the original recipe that I found in Country Living (you could also use minced fresh garlic instead of the garlic powder). The croutons on top are a nice touch, too! It’s a great summery soup to serve for a light lunch or dinner!
