nothing i like better than a nice cold vichyssoise in the summer months, but it was wonderful tonight,warm .the microwave saves burner space, and is just too easy-thanks so much for this recipe, it's going to be one of my "regulars" 6/07- updating to say that i have been making this for 5 yrs now and still love it! tonight i added some fresh dill, thyme and parsley, and used white pepper- divine.
