7 Mar

Currently drawing a Vampire Weekend-inspired comic whilst listening to Dungen, it is suprisingly doable.

Well, things are pretty swell today: it rained (and is still raining) for a solid 24 hours, which is nice and lovely. 72 degrees today, everyone broke out the sweaters.

Nothing much else to report, though I did make some tomato soup and here is the recipe (sorry for lack of pictures, I was busy trying to puree it without making a huge mess)


Roughly chop up three cloves of garlic and either half an onion or a whole shallot, then melt some butter in a saucepan on medium heat and sweat them until they’re nice and soft, about four-five minutes. While they’re cooking (make sure to stir them intermittently), open three cans of tomatoes (or, if you have a bunch of fresh tomatoes handy, boil some water, take it off the burner, and add the tomatoes. Leave them in for about a minute, then drain them. If you make a cut in the skin, you should be able to easily peel it all off. Do this with all of them, then chop them roughly and place in a bowl until you’re ready to add them to the soup.) and put them aside for a moment. Salt and pepper the stuff in the pan until it’s to your liking. Then, add the tomatoes all at once, and stir nicely to combine.
If you have an immersion blender, you can skip this next step: Take the pan off of the heat and let it cool for a few minutes, or until you’re able to put a finger in it without getting scalded. Put the tomato stuff into a blender or food processor and puree until it’s nice and smooth. You can make it a little chunkier, if you’re like me and like it thick, or you can blend the bejeesus out of it.
If you have an immersion blender, puree that sucker.
Once it’s to your liking, (and after you’ve put it back in the pan, those of you with blenders/food processors), add about a cup of milk or cream, and stir well. Finally, add some thyme (about 1/8 teaspoon) and dill (about a teaspoon, depends on how much you like) and eat up. This serves about four people with ravenous appetites, six people who aren’t really that hungry, or eight calorie-counting bachelorettes.

Will maybe write more later tonight.
