Food: Tomato bisque and cheese bread with salad.
I love tomatoes.
Sometimes I just eat them raw with a bit of salt.
Tonight, [EDIT] made some tomato bisque (of [EDIT]'s own improvised variation that originated with a simple roux of butter, salt and yellow onion) with some stewed tomatoes from a can. Can't say that's the freshest way of doing things, but it was delicious regardless. I bought some smoked Gouda and [EDIT] put it on top of some Truckee Sourdough kalamata ciabatta bread. Some red leaf lettuce topped with fresh tomatoes, avocado, olive oil, a bit of rice vinegar and man... tasty.
Throw in some Old Rasputin Stout on the side with an outside seat amidst a soothing summer breeze and that's a fine meal.
