So, So Many

Today.  Every single one of these.  From my garden.  Today.

I’m going to need a bigger kitchen.  And some tomato recipes.  Stat.

    You did find the gazpacho recipe? What book, or site, is it from? I think that may be part of my weekend plan, too!

    • Mary was kind enough to share her mom’s recipe! Let me know if you need tomatoes. Anyone. Seriously.

      Mom’s Gazpacho

      2 large tomatoes
      1 large cucumber, peeled
      1 med onion, peeled
      1 med green pepper, quartered, seeded
      1 jar pimiento, drained (several tablespoons)
      2 12-oz cans of tomato juice (V8- she buys one big can)
      1/3 cup olive oil
      1/3 cup red wine vinegar
      ¼ teaspoon Tabasco
      1 ½ teaspoon salt
      1/8 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
      2 cloves garlic (she uses more)
      ½ cup croutons (mom never uses)
      ¼ cup chopped chives (mom never uses)

      In blender, combine 1 tomato, ½ cucumber, ½ onion, ½ green pepper and pimiento and ½ cup tomato juice, and add some garlic
      Blend for 30 seconds to puree veggies
      Blend in olive oil, vinegar, Tabasco, salt and pepper, and as much V8 as possible
      Pour into pitcher
      Then add remaining V8 juice into pitcher

      Could sauté croutons if you use…

      Chop remaining veggies and serve in little bowl for people to help themselves.
