I was in Washington for most of the last week for my friends Melissa and Sean’s wedding (more on that later!) I didn’t cook while I was there, so I suppose that’s what has sparked this flood of posts the last two days. Plus I visited Whole Foods while running on nothing but coffee yesterday and practically bought the entire store. Never grocery shop while hungry!This Mango Gazpacho would be perfect for Cinco de Mayo party, although, as our charming waiter at Vera Cruz informed us last night, it’s a Spanish dish, not Mexican.
