PhotoHunt ~Yummy

The PhotoHunt for this week is 'Yummy

I'm including a put together recipe for my favorite appetizer for this time of year . . . When those Chilton County peaches are just right.
I call it a put-together recipe, because all you have to do is "put it together".
First, peel and chunk a fresh peach. Mix with 2Tbs of red pepper jelly and 1Tbs of spicy mustard. Next, peel the top off of a round of Brie. Here I wanted to use an oblong shaped plate so I cut it into random chunks.
Bake at 350 until the cheese is melty, then top with the peaches and bake another 5-8 minutes.

Serve with chunks of bread, or some Gluten-Free crisps.

That's Yummy!

PhotoHunt ~Rose

The PhotoHunt for today is Rose ~

I love that they plant rose bushes at the end of the row of vines in Italy. It is a way for the farmers to see if there is a problem with bugs that could destroy their entire crop of grapes.
The bugs will attack the rose bush before they attack the grapes.

Besides . . . they look so pretty.

As if the rows of vines aren't pretty enough.

Traveling to the Rivah Cottage

Last weekend I took a quick trip to Boston . . . Actually to the Rivah Cottage on the 'South Shore'

The river rises at high tide and this grass is under water, as the tide flows back to the ocean it leaves these waves of green grass. The marsh is beautiful this time of year.

(Pronounced "Mahsh" )
Summers in New England are perfect.
Imagine this Lovely view every morning with your coffee ~

I am also joining Our World Tuesday
Y'all enjoy the ride~

PhotoHunt ~ Gray

Today we are photohunting Gray ~

London can be a very 'gray' town.
No matter what the season.

Except for the pop of Red.

That bit of red in a phone booth, a train or a bus . . . just brightens things up.

I LoVe London.

Cooking Light ~Cucumber Gazpacho for Brunch

Our Cooking Light Supper Club is hosting a Brunch this month. I am in charge of bringing a soup. I found this recipe for a cool summer gazpacho in the Cooking Light Pages
This is perfect for a light summer meal, or a brunch.
Cucumber Gazpacho with Shrimp Relish
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
3/4 pound peeled and deveined medium shrimp, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon paprika
2 cups quartered grape tomatoes
1/3 cup fresh cilantro
2 1/2 cups chopped English cucumber
1 cup fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth
1 cup whole-milk plain Greek yogurt
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
Dash of ground red pepper
1 large garlic clove, peeled
First...  Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle shrimp with 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, cumin, and paprika. Add shrimp to pan; sauté 2 minutes or until done. Stir in tomatoes; remove from heat. Add cilantro.

Place remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, cucumber, and remaining ingredients in a blender; process until smooth. Ladle 1 cup soup into each of 4 bowls; top with 3/4 cup relish.
Serve at room temperature with the sauted shrimp.
This was a very unique gazpacho. I think it would have been much better without that huge cup of greek yogurt. It overpowered the delicate cucumbers. The shrimp 'relish' sank to the bottom of the bowl ~ making un-appetizing photos. ( But it tasted great )
I think he looks better hanging out on the side.


Now . . . let's see what everyone else has brought for our September Brunch.
Jerry has made Savory Sausage Breakfast Rolls
Val is making Leek Potato Fritters
Susan is bringing Monkey Bread
Sara has some Dutch Baby Pancakes
Shelby is bringing a Strata of Tomatoes and Bacon

Y'all enjoy ~
