Mm, okay I have a story for you. You see, before I moved to South Korea I was quite obsessed with tomato soup. In fact, it was something I ate at least 2 times a week, often with grilled cheese to accompany and crushed crackers inside. I'm telling you, the stuff is better than dessert. Anyway, I've literally been searching for the stuff since we moved from the States and no luck. Even when we went to Thailand I looked at every place imaginable and honestly, I can't believe Southeast Asians are willing to miss out on the vegetably goodness.
Okay I have to admit to something: I found some tomato soup at "foreigner" grocery store in Itaewon maybe 3 months ago, but I didn't buy it because I figured it wasn't that difficult to find and I wasn't looking very hard. AND the can was like 10 pounds and like 15,000 won and I really didn't feel like doling out that kind of money or carrying a weight around for the rest of the afternoon.
Fast foward to this week. I finally thought, "HEY! We can try to make tomato soup!" Well, ladies and gents, I'm definitely a genius because that is the best idea I've ever had in my life. So David and I got all the supplies necessary and whipped up a batch of tomato soup (made from scratch) which fresh tomatoes and all.
It. tasted. like. heaven. We even splurged on 5 pieces of American cheese ($2ish) to make grilled cheese. I will be making this at least once a week from here on out. I think it will get me through the hard times. Picture:
Seriously, how rad?
