i am HOOKED on Sarah Carey. just love watching her daily cooking videos. yesterday i made gazpacho. i read pioneer woman’s version and also remembered things a spanish friend of mine told me about how adding bread makes it creamier. in other words i gathered evidence and then did my own thing. but sarah inspired me, and my version is much more hers than PW.
in the photos above you can’t see the red wine vinegar or olive oil. everyone agrees really good olive oil is the key. i like mine smooth not chunky so i used a strainer.
naturally the photos above are starring another dishtowel i got in norway.
about the gazpacho…i forgot the red pepper. but even without it, completely delectable. seriously luscious. crazy good. all that.
i just had a bowl with crispy croutons on top. oy.
i got 2 more crocheted panels for window tops at the aalesund, norway antique store i mentioned in the last post. 2! a set! ORANGE!
they may as well have had my name on them. when i took them to the counter the proprietor laughed and said, “the ’70s!” apparently someone decided to experiment with tradition. i’m totally in love, that’s all i know.
i was so taken with this little project alice chiang is trying to get off the ground.
go watch her video over at kickstarter. prepare to be charmed.
