Jay has returned to Canada (for the night)

This afternoon he set off for Montreal for work which means tonight he will spend his time snuggling Cotton (featured below. Just look at her sweet little hand on his neck. Isn’t he going to be a great Dad?!) and dineing with our friends the Stenbergs.  Whereas, I on the other hand am cooped up our apartment navigating the complex world of personal taxes, writing up educational assessment reports and reading journal article upon journal article.  It truly feels a like it has been a few days since I last came up for air.  I figured since I am miles away, in the wrong country and can’t be with Jay to relish the company tonight, I may as well still savor a good meal.  In the past I haven’t had much luck when it comes to tomato soups, as they often end up too bland or too runny.  However, this fragrant tomato soup changed all that.  No description would do this rich, flavorful soup justice. So I will merely leave it to you to test for yourself.

The result: Yum. Continue reading “Spicy Tomato Coconut Bisque”
