When my boyfriend and I first became vegetarian, we could count on one hand how many dishes were in our repertoire. It included, chili, stir-fries, spaghetti, pesto, and tomato soup. Now a days, I do pretty much all the cooking, and have expanded my horizons to include all the things on this blog and beyond. He, on the other hand.. can't even make spaghetti anymore.
Tomato soup was our old standby. A great dish to make for 2 or a crowd, we would make this at least every 2 weeks. Obviously now, since my culinary horizons have expanded, I make a lot of other things instead of the same 5 things over and over. But I found myself making tomato soup tonight for the first time in years.
I mean, I can't just make plain old tomato soup, the way I used to. I've got to mix things up when I'm re-doing them. I was heavily influenced by the weather, which, right now can't decide what season it's going to be. It's very warm when the sun comes out, but the sun isn't really coming out that much. So it's actually still pretty goddamn cold. I craved a little smokiness, the type of cooking warm weather tends to bring with it. I also craved soup. I crave soup when it is freezing. Most people do that, right?
