So. During the day, I watch a lot of Food Network. And I do mean a lot. About the only thing on daytime television (other than soap operas and court shows, which I would not watch if my life depended on it) are reruns of the Daily Show/Colbert Report and food network. And since I tend to watch the Daily Show when it first airs – unless I’ve already passed out from exhaustion – I watch such high quality television as Guy’s Big Bite and Semi-Homemade Cooking. Although I have yet to see anything on either of those two shows that I would actually want to make, I did see something ridiculously delicious on Tyler’s Ultimate the other day. Roasted Tomato Soup.
Let me just digress for a moment. During the first few months of my pregnancy, about the only food that did not make me actively nauseous was the creamy tomato soup from Bread Co. I ate it almost every day. Unfortunately, it is a “seasonal” item and it was discontinued for the summer. I don’t know why; it was one of the most popular soups on the menu. So, my inside source at B. Co tells me that they are bringing it back soon but I just can’t wait any longer. And I really have no desire to set foot in there ever again (despite the delicious new pastries which Desiree has been tempting me with all week).
Okay. Where was I? So this recipe was on his Ultimate Mac-n-cheese show and I just could not help myself. We’re gonna make both of them this weekend. Brian and I went down to the farmer’s market this morning – it is very strange to be there not on a Saturday, by the way – to get some supplies. We got the tomatoes and the onions and the garlic, but the whole reason why I wanted to go down there instead of to the grocery store was because they usually have herbs for about $1 a bunch. Unfortunately, the farm stand that has the herbs wasn’t there today. Grr. Also the recipe seems a bit more complicated than we are used to making. Oh well, keeping my fingers crossed that we don’t screw it up too badly. I want me some tomato soup!
