Now, here’s a recipe that can be made quickly and is great for a weeknight autumn evening. Satisfying, spicy, shrimpy and delicious. But, don’t forget to remove the shells from the shrimp.

Activities are starting to heat up around the Schmautzhaus, even though the weather has been a little chilly, because my only daughter is getting married this summer and we have lots of planning to do. What better way to conquer the cold and plan a wedding at the same time than making something in the Crock Pot? Yes!Chef! has never been a fan of the Crock Pot. He won’t tell my why…he just shrugs his shoulders. But, I think it’s because it doesn’t feel like cooking and, more importantly, you can’t lift the lid and stir it around while it’s cooking. Now, he says he is really enjoying the slow cooker and so he made some spicy Posole in the crock to prove it.
I think anyone who reads this blog knows how our family feels about home made soup. We love it. We even love soup in the summer as long as it is a cold soup like gazpacho. Many soups are also good for the waist-line (and every other body line, for that matter) and many people are concerned about their weight starting this new year…including me! Yes!Chef! said he could stand to lose a few pounds, too.
I love soup…especially homemade soup. I think there is nothing more homey and comforting than soup. It makes the house smell good. It warms me up. It can be easily shared. It can be frozen for a later date. It’s economical. And, it gets better the next day. What more could you ask of food?
There are two things I look forward to in the summertime: Farmers Markets and Great Tasting Tomatoes. It seems like I can’t seem to get enough of either. I try to go to the Farmers Market as often as possible and I can’t resist the tomatoes (both buying them and taking pictures of them.) So it’s natural that I would make Gazpacho with them. Well, maybe it would not be natural to anyone else, but it was natural to me.
