So, what is happening here? I should be entering photography contests, not recipe contests. Yes!Chef! is the one who should be thinking about cooking contests. The sad truth is: I should stick to photography and let Yes!Chef! do the cooking.
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.
Memorial Day! A day to remember and thank God for those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect my freedom. A day to celebrate. My dad and my grandfathers and my husband’s father all served in the armed services. Thankfully, none of them gave their lives, although my grandfather’s ship was hit by a Kamikaze plane and many men died. They served and were proud of their service. They have all passed away now and I remember them and their bravery on this day.
