Chilled Cantaloupe Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2006
Have a dinner party for 8 tomorrow. We're on our fourth version of this soup TONIGHT. First we tried it as written. Hubby hated it. I thought it was fine. Then we tried it with melon #2 and fresh squeezed clementines (we didn't have any other oranges in the house) and no cinnamon, but we ran out of clementines and decided to mix a bit of batch one with this batch, and then hubby hated it (he blames it on the cinammon). I thought it was still fine. Then we went to the grocery and picked up melons #3 and #4 and juicing oranges. Made it again without the cinnamon but with juicing oranges. Hubby still didn't like it. I still thought it was fine. Now we're on melon #4 and we did the standard Cantaloupe Mint soup -- puree a cantaloupe and add a bunch of fresh mint leaves and puree again. The end. We've spent like $15 on this soup and now what am I going to do with all of it in the fridge?!?!?!? Make ice pops?!?! Grrrrrrr.
