Barefoot Bloggers: Gazpacho

This post is gonna be short. I spilled a big cup of water on my laptop. Now it is sitting there drying out. I don't know how long it needs to dry but it was an expensive computer (a macbook pro) so I'd rather wait longer if that means that it has a better chance of being OK. I'm not sure how long I'm going to wait. I guess until I go nuts not having my comp at home. Anyone have any thoughts on how long I should wait?

Fortunately I already had my Daring Baker's post done and scheduled before the water accident. Not the case with this post.

The pro's: This recipe is very light and fresh tasting. I thought it was quite garlicky.

The con's: It makes a lot of gazpacho. I mean a LOT. I can only eat about a cup a day and it made probably half a gallon.

The original recipe is here. It was chosen by Meryl of My Bit of Earth.

I was starting to think that I was the only one who made this!

I can't eat tomatoes, but my hubby LOVED it! He said it was a nice change of pace from the traditional warm soup.

Hope your laptop dries out soon!!!!!

I agree it makes alot. My boys will not touch the soup. Both my husband and I really like it. I think mine came out too oniony, if that's a word.

I'm sorry to hear about your computer and hope that it is okay.
