Black Mountain Barb's seahorse cup. It's the perfect size for a cup of soup.
I also chopped one cucumber (peeled). Next time I'll only use half a cucumber, the cucumber was a tad overpowering in flavor. Meanwhile I sauteed one shallot and several garlic cloves which I chopped fine. I added the pureed tomatoes and cucumber to the pot. I added some fresh herbs from the garden, basil, marjoram, thyme, Spanish tarragon and sage. I added a tablespoon of golden balsamic vinegar and a tablespoon of sugar and cooked about an hour.
