Gazpacho

Because I like saying it. And eating it. Other favourite food word currently: samosa.

And I make one helluva grand gazpacho. You should trying saying it with a Southern accent; so much better than the Spanish version because the pach has a little more oomph.

Dale said...

Secret ingredient?

X. Dell said...

Gazpaucho is a melodious word, but I think I will refrain from consuming it...unless I can nuke it first.

At lunch yesterday, a female co-worker commented that the Gazpacho was especially hot. I said: "That's because you're eating a bowl of salsa..."

justacoolcat said...

I'll take a chilled Taj Mahal with the samosa and the warm gazpacho manchego with a mamosa.

mellowlee said...

I've never had gazpacho before. Samosas on the other hand....MMMMmmmm I love those!

Dale said...

Not even a little taste X. Dell? I guess you could nuke it but why sweet Jesus why?

That's very funny S.O. What did you say when she started lapping up the mustard?

Coming right up sir CC. Wait a minute, you did bring your wallet this time right?

Try Beth's recipe Mellowlee. Or someone's. It's worth it. And yes, the samosas are delicious too.

Mob said...

I'll see your gazpacho and raise you a focaccia.

Beth said...

C'mon over, Mellowlee. I'll dish up a bowl and pour lots of cocktails. You just have to bring Dale with you.

I quite often say 'El Scorchio!!' when it's hot and my OBF (Other Best Friend) attempted to copy me one day but confused the issue by saying 'Gazpacho!' instead.

So now we use that word to describe the heat. Go figure.

Dale said...

Ah Mob, the foccacia, I enjoy the struggle some people have with saying it. Foe-ka-chee-a.

Sounds spicy all around Beth. Booked the flights yet Lee?

Very funny Ziggy but shouldn't OBF know that you simply can't or won't be copied?

NYCbeauty said...

Oooh. I should invite you for dinner. I have both in my fridge right now!

PS: and you are right. I was a good head taller than the guy!

I was on a business lunch once when the ditzy waitress started reciting the lunch special. The soup of the day was "Gestapo".

Shroom-Monkey said...

I go for the poor man's gazpacho, a jar of salsa and a spoon. No need for the chilled bowl or the sprig of parsley.

Old Lady said...

Spanakopita anyone?

chelene said...

I like the sound of blackened chicken alfredo. Why? Because I'm starving and I just ordered it for lunch.

sKincarver said...

While channel surfing the other night, I ran across the Spanish language program "Infarto". My wife, who's Venezuelan, told me it meant heart attack.

Ok, so it's not food, but I can't stop saying it...with my best Antonio Banderas accent.

Tanya Espanya said...

I don't make it but my mami does, and that's why I have gazpacho running through my veins instead of blood.

I'm Spanish, remember? But I also love a scorchio samosa washed down with some Tabasco sauce.

I'm a spicy Spanyard...

Dale said...

If I had seen your message earlier NYC B I might have been able to catch the flight. It's what I had for dinner last night. Both items. Both delicious.

That'd be a harsh soup to be pushing Berry! I don't even want to know what the sides would be.

But is it made out of real poor men Shroom? If you're gonna go authentic...

Mmm, spanakopita - delicious and fun to say. Taramoosalata anyone?

Why did I have boring salad for lunch. Hard to dress a word like salad.

Creepy Tenacious D! The Banderas sounds very necessary for Infarto. So it's a soap? game show? reality show?

Yo mama makes some fine samosas although I don't think I've had any GauzePatchos there. I'll just suck your blood next time I see you.

SlayGirl said...

I've never had either of these foods but am gonna try to find them now. And yeah, they are fun to say.

Dale said...

Hi Slaygirl, You've probably had things like them, just not the fancy names. You'll have to tell me what you think.

SlayGirl said...

I will:)

Dale said...

Well?

Bored Dominatrix said...

Gazpacho.... Spanokopita.... Samosa....

No wonder English food sucks: it has names like "gruel" and "gravy" and "porridge," which is why it tastes like gruel and gravy and porridge.

Dale said...

That's a good and funny point.

Porridge I liked as a child but now that I think of it, only with about 1/2 pound of brown sugar on top. Gruel only sounds good as an exercise in rolling your Rs. Gravy? Sounds ridiculous but mmmmm, gravy.
