My Gautier kitchen came alive this weekend with the sound of peeling and chopping as I finally found some beautiful home grown tomatoes at Four Seasons in Moss Point. In an effort to always Shop local! I stopped in there yesterday in hopes of avoiding the grocery store all together. Avoid I did! I piled tons of fresh veggies, numerous cheeses, Amish butter, some great local sausage on the counter where the sweetest gal was trying her darndest to learn a new computer system. Having been through this once or twice Mac and I assured her she was doing fine and not to get flustered. She was so apologetic for making us wait. Her hands were sweating from pure nervousness so Mac asked if he could help with the touch screen. Sure enough it responded to his touch. We were able to complete our shopping and were on our way. Crazy!

I love good gazpacho. Cold, fresh, summertime soup. Get the recipe below and make some today before the summer tomatoes disappear!

4 large fresh tomatoes

1 white onion

1 green pepper

1 red pepper

1 seeded jalapeño pepper

2 seeded cucumbers

1/2 cup cilantro

1/3 cup olive oil

1/4 cup vinegar

Juice of 1 large lime

Chop everything into small chunks. Then all goes into the Ninja food processor on medium until well blended to a smooth consistency.

Season to your liking with salt and pepper and Tony’s Chachere’s seasoning. Chill (overnight is best) to let the flavors blend. Serve with your favorite garnish, scallions, cilantro, feta crumbles, sour cream…you decide. Enjoy!
