We went to the farmer’s market today.  How can you not love August in Minnesota when half an hour and about twenty bucks gets you this:

Tomorrow, gazpacho!  I have been waiting very impatiently for the tomatoes to come in sufficient quantity for gazpacho.  After our travels in Spain last year, we perfected a mean gazpacho to remind us of Andalucia.  Next, I just have to carve out our cinderblock wall to remind me of the Alhambra…
