There is only one thing better than picking vegetables from your very own garden when you are eating fresh - picking vegetables from someone else's garden. Enter my pops. He grows a terrific garden every year. And it's only a couple minutes away from my house.
If you have two minutes, hang in the garden with me. If you hate relaxing things like nature scenes and bird songs, skip to the recipe.
Watermelon Gazpacho (adapted from Decor8)
3 slices watermelon (I'll add more next time, I was a bit watermelon shy. Don't be like me.)
1/2 each of green, red and yellow bell pepper
1 large tomato
1/4 red onion
1/2 cup chopped eggplant
generous handful of cilantro
juice of one lemon
dash of salt
goat cheese, crumbled
Throw everything except the goat cheese into a food processor (or blender) and process the heck out of it. When you reach the desired consistency, serve it up and throw a little pico de gallo (made from the left-over pieces of vege for the gazpacho), cilantro and goat cheese on top. Eat!
