Thank you for admitting that there is something you made and did not like! Also thank you for attempting that soup in the first place! :)

I just had to say that I cracked up when I read this. Then I clicked on the "flops" label and laughed even more at the other entries! Your writing style is terrifically entertaining. Keep it up.

Hi Tress. It's good to meet you. Sorry to greet you with cucumber soup, however; that's not the best welcome :o. I'm so glad you're enjoying Queen of the Castle. I've really enjoyed looking around your blog. You seem to have the knack for decorating and making things lovely. Hope you have a delightful day, too.

Oh, now, I dunno. I've made a cucumber soup in the past that wasn't sooooo bad that I'd never try it again. It takes a little getting used to the idea because normally I associate cucumbers as being eaten raw or in pickles.

Katy, if you've had success with this, I'd love to hear what you did. The recipe I followed was from a Southern Living cookbook. They had you blend everything up in the blender (including melted butter, which, of course, the minute it hit the rest of the ingredients turned into little solid fat globs). I'd be willing to try again if you have a recipe to recommend. I am nothing if not persistent.

Lynn, let me look for it. I think it was in my Fanny Farmer Cookbook. Or maybe it was an old Farm Jounal cookbook.

Katy, I just looked in my Fannie Farmer Cookbook and saw three cucumber soup recipes. Two of them look pretty similar to the one I already tried, but the third one had a yogurt base (rather than cream or milk) and sounded really light. Could this be the one you've tried?
