“Don’t take life too seriously. You’ll never get out alive.” – Bugs Bunny
Carrots have a lot going for them. They are a pretty color, they are a little sweet, you can eat them raw or cook them and they taste good. In a pinch, you can feed them to horses (or rabbits). Most especially, though: they are very economical and good for you.
Gazpacho with Corn Bread Croutons
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.
Last Saturday I stopped by the Placerville Farmers Market for the first time this year. I was amazed at all the fresh fruits and veggies that were available this early in the season. I was also surprised about the amount of people that were there until I remembered that the Wagon Train was in town for their annual parade. I did not stick around for that, because it gets kind of crazy in town, but it is certainly an interesting and fun event that’s been around a very long time.
