Farmer's Market Find: Tomatoes = Gazpacho!!!

So what do you do when you have a bunch of PERFECT tomatoes on a hot day?
Make Gazpacho!!!
Score the bottom of each tomato and dunk in boiling water for a few seconds, then put in an ice bath. You're not cooking the tomatoes, just trying to release the skin.
Perfect job for the husband.
OK, at this point, squeeze the seeds out and put in the food processor. Now, there are a million recipes for gazpacho, but like many things at my house, we WING IT!
So, add a little red onion, garlic, bell pepper, olive oil, red wine vinegar...blitz!
We did not add bread this time. However, you can if you want to.
OK, salt, pepper, a little more olive oil...taste. YUM!
Garnish with chopped bell pepper, cucumber, red onion...Slurp away !!!
Serve your gazpacho with grilled bread rubbed with garlic, olive oil, and then topped with serrano ham, manchego and a chilled glass of rose.
