“Those are my parents. They’ve been married 55 years. They met when my dad was visiting Mexico as a young man. He saw my mom at a party, but he couldn’t speak a word of Spanish, so they just sort of looked at each other and giggled. Everything was very formal back then, so he asked a mutual friend to obtain permission for him to contact her. My mom gave my dad her address, and when he went back to America, he would write her a letter every few days. He’d write the entire letter in English, and then get a Spanish dictionary and translate it word by word. My mom says the letters barely made sense. But after he’d written many letters, he went back to Mexico and they went on their first date. There were adult chaperones and everything, they didn’t even kiss or touch. It was all very formal. And after a few dates, they decided to marry. Her family thought she was crazy to marry this weird American who kept writing the letters. But she said she knew he was the one. Get this—- just two years ago, we were all visiting Italy. And I busted the two of them making out in a corner. I snapped a photo. Dad’s got Mom pinned up against a wall and he’s macking her hard.”
Gringa Gazpacho for a light spicy dinner in the tropical heat. Me and my awesome assistant @em0cean blended the following in our vitamix. She’s been raw with me for the last three weeks and absolutely loved this blend. Let us know what you think!
- 5 large heirloom tomatoes
- 2 red bell peppers
- 1 purple onion
- 3 cloves of garlic
- juice of 2 limes
- handful of cilantro
- pinch of cayenne
- 1/4 cup coconut water
Whip it up, pour into bowls and top with cilantro and cracked black pepper. To make it sweeter add some watermelon. To make it thicker add avocado to the blend or cube it for topping.
If I had coconut meat I would have blended 1/2 a cup for a smooth and creamy dollop of coconut creme.
What’s in your vitamix tonight? I honestly don’t know what I would do without mine. It’s the most well loved and utilized thing I’ve ever owned.
