White Gazpacho with Grapes and Toasted Almonds was hosted this week by Lauren of I'll Eat You. Lauren is a very creative blogger. Check out the recipe on her blogsite if you are interested.
I have just about decided that I am not the "healthy" food type of person. Don't get me wrong, I want to eat healthy. But I am really having withdrawal pains this week, missing stuff like fried chicken, mashed potatoes with gravy, corn on the cob slathered in melted butter, cornbread with cheese and jalapenos, home-made ice cream, and fried pies. Maybe some potato salad on the side. Or a nice blueberry cobbler with a bit of whipped cream on top.
Instead, I made White Gazpacho with Grapes and Almonds. I didn't have any white grapes so I used red. I didn't bother to toast the almonds because I knew I was not going to like this dish. I love cucumbers and I would rather have had my cucumbers sliced with salt on them, or mayonnaise and pepper is always good, a little vinegar maybe. But not in gazpacho. The important thing to me is that I tried the gazpacho. I can honestly say this will not be a recipe I make again. I'm curious to hear how everyone else liked it.
I'll be in Connecticut on vacation when this gets posted so I apologize that I will not be around to leave comments on your wonderful posts. But when I get back on Sunday I promise to read them all! Have a great weekend!
