So, I think it's a testament to how much my palate has grown that the ingredients for last night's dinner consisted of scarcely more than this:
Almost five pounds of lovely, not-sinister-at-all tomatoes! They were less than $1 a pound, so I decided it was time to make some homemade Tomato Soup. (The recipe is from Food Network Magazine, naturally.) I only made the tomato soup part of the recipe this time; I invented my own grilled cheese sandwiches, which ended up being muenster and gouda with bologna, on grilled garlic bread.
It all turned out so delicious, and smelling so good, that I forgot to take a picture of the meal for the blog, so you all will have to settle for a picture of the leftover servings of soup. My sweetie thinks I have ruined her for canned tomato soup for life!
As for me, I think I can say I have finally cured my aversion to tomatoes for life. Though I doubt I will ever choose to serve them sliced and salted as a side dish...
