Paul had this for lunch today:

Green Gazpacho

2 cups coarsely chopped seeded peeled cucumbers
1 cup chopped romaine lettuce
1/2 cup coarsely chopped green bell pepper
1/4 cup coarsely chopped onion
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons Sherry wine vinegar
1 tablespoon coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
1 garlic clove, minced
1 cup (2 ounces) cubed crustless white bread
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup thinly sliced romaine lettuce
1/2 cup fresh crabmeat
2 tablespoons minced fresh chives
Additional olive oil preparation
Puree first 8 ingredients in food processor. Add bread and let stand until soggy, about 2 minutes. Puree until smooth. Mix in 1 1/2 cups water. Transfer gazpacho to large bowl. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
(Gazpacho can be made up to 2 days ahead. Keep refrigerated.)

Divide gazpacho among 4 bowls. Place thinly sliced romaine in center of each serving. Sprinkle lettuce with crabmeat and chives, then drizzle with olive oil. Serve immediately.

    ps. I saw G-bee breifly this evening, and she had made up a batch of Ruperts to get them through the show. She seemed tired, but happy.
