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!
