I’m so making gazpacho this weekend. Actually, I’ll be making it twice.

We’ll be telling people about the Locally Grown recipe contest, so come on over and pick up an entry form. Or click here to enter.

I’m also going to make a peach tart. And plenty of BLTs. My tomatoes are in full force.

What else should I make?
