In the spirit of making the most of the cooler weather, this soup will make the perfect snuggle-up-in-a-warm-afghan-and-watch-Netflix companion. Who doesn't love a savory tomato bisque soup?

 

I bet you were wondering if you'd see a new recipe this week...so was I. This week I could hardly get this recipe up I've been so preoccupied with a brand new personal assistant job, and of course, getting immersed in the wonderful world that encompasses photography. As I mentioned last week, my brand new Canon Rebel t3i has become an exciting new presence in this blog and in my day to day life. I've only had it for two weeks and I want to take it with me wherever I go, do photo shoots with friends, and take pictures of every piece of beautiful produce, flower, and plant I walk by. I may have even made it into the Cool Kids Camera Club... you know, with the group of awesome photographers who understand what the F-stop, shutter speed, and ISO are and how to use them. I'm just about there, anyway. It's been amazing to find out how many friends I've had all along who are members of this club.

 

Photography takes an incredible amount of talent, guys. If you've never experience it first-hand, I feel I must tell you to hold your photographer friends to a higher level of prestige. Their talents come at the cost of thousands of dollars in equipment, countless hours learning to understand the capabilities of each piece, and patience to deal with friends, family, and clients who don't take it seriously. I find it very similar to the perils of Graphic Design where people automatically assume my talents in this field can be learned from YouTube tutorials or that each design takes me approximately 10 seconds to complete...but I digress. Photography is an art that does not come from simply owning a fancy camera. So, time for me to put in those extensive hours and master my newest craft!

 

In the mean time, I'm filling my weeks with the miniature parade of friends who want to be models for a day as I explore the depths of my camera and the possibilities of each lens. I love it!! But of course, the food is lining up to be photographed, too. This week, the tomatoes were a'lining!I

I hope this recipe warms your soul on these cold winter days, because if you live ANYwhere except Arizona, it is much, much cooler than 76°F and completely appropriate weather for hot soup.

 

All my love,
