Not your average student

So I’ve decided to try and start my senior year of college the right way. Throughout my college career my diet has consisted of cafeteria food (boring after a year), macaroni and cheese, and pizza.

Not this year. I’m going to be all grown-up and eat all sorts of healthy food. Maybe even do some experimenting in my little (ok so it’s actually quite puny) kitchen. I figured blogging about it might even help keep me motivated. It seems like everybody blogs about everything these days!

So tonight I started off with something simple: tomato soup. I sampled this wonderful tomato basil soup at the farmer’s market a couple of months ago and it was marvelous. I attempted to replicate it (did I mention I’m a chemistry major?). Here’s what I used:

3 good sized tomatoes

1 pint whipping cream

A LOT of basil.

And this is what I got.

Doesn’t look so bad, right? Well I must confess that I am not the biggest fan of tomatoes. In my opinion, there were too many “chunkies” left in the soup. Needless to say, next time I am straining out all the “chunkies” and hoping for the best!
