Tropical Inspired Maternity Shoot

 

 

We have a beyond gorgeous and dreamy maternity shoot to share with you today and we couldn’t be more excited!  Alexis Ramos Photo shot the lovely Jessica and they went for a very tropical feel.  Everything came together seamlessly between the location, the lighting, her flowing dress and headpiece.  The way they were able to catch the sun just as it was setting couldn’t have created a better mood if they had tried!  Looking through these photos we can smell the sea salty air, the breeze in our face, and our toes in the sand.

Green Pea Soup with Cheddar Scallion Panini

– 3 tablespoons butter
– 4 scallions
– 3 boxes (10 ounces each) frozen peas
– 1 can (14.5 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
– 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp white cheddar (6 ounces)
– 8 slices sourdough bread
– Coarse salt and ground pepper
– 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1.  In a large saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon butter over medium. Add scallions, and cook, stirring, until softened, 1 to 2 minutes. Add peas, broth, and 3 cups water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until peas are tender, about 5 minutes; set aside.
2.  In a medium bowl, toss cheddar with scallions. Make 4 sandwiches with cheddar mixture and bread.
3.  In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon butter over medium-low. Place sandwiches in skillet, and cook until golden, 3 to 4 minutes per side, adding remaining tablespoon butter to skillet to cook second side.
4.  Working in batches, puree soup in a blender until smooth (filling blender only halfway to prevent spattering). If necessary, adjust consistency with a little bit of water. Season with salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Slice each panini into four “fingers, and serve with soup.
