gazpacho..or almost..


it is so hot in these days, over 40° in the shadow..I don't even want to know how warm it is in the sun! :)))
I thought nobody would have liked to do trekking in this heat, but I was wrong!
(that is not including, simo, monica, laura and me, of course:))))))
today, I had to german turists.
I wanted to be angry with them,
but when they said they were on honeymoon, I just melted :))
they were sooooo cute!
and the love I saw in her eyes when he discussed with me about Dante, was..
so touching!
well, after 12km in the heat we all had enough!!
we struggled back to the busstaion in Castelletto, and it was such a relife
sitting in the airconditioned bus on the way back! :))

I left them in Torri, with the promise they would be back next year..
the month dosen't matter, important it is NOT AUGUST!!! :))))

back home I took out a couple of bottles of Gazpacho from the fridge.
this recipe is only similar to the original one, but it is very simple and
tasty never the less.


simil gazpacho

1kg of riped tomatoes
1 peeled cucumber
1 red bell pepper
1 onion
1 garlic clove
1 chili
50-80ml of white, red or apple vinegar

but the chopped vegetables in the blender.
mix for a minute on medium speed.
add the vinegar and mix on high speed for about 3 minutes.
add salt and pepper if necessary and pour in clean bottles.

it will keep 4 days in the frige.
you get two bottles of 750ml.
