Tonight I made a tomatosoup. Very easy. I first roasted cherry tomatoes in the oven, with a large onion and garlic with some olive oil, salt and sugar, balsamic vinegar and tarragon. Whilst the tomatoes were roasting, I let a can of ecological tomatoes and ½liter water boil lightly with vegetable broth in a saucepan. Once the cherry tomatoes were ready (approx 25 minutes) I added them to the saucepan and mixed with my stick blender. I added good buffala mozzarella (the ordinary mozzarella has no taste) on my plate and added the soup and basiloil. The basiloil is also easy. I ran a pot of fresh basil, 1 dl olive oil, salt and garlic through my mixer, and voilá!
Indeed a very delicious soup. I love warm soups during this season. I find it rather ridiculous to only cook for guests and not use serviettes and set the table when I dine myself. It would be a very poor everyday life if I chose that path.

On a sadder note. Yesterday I received the saddest news that my dear friend and colleague Rikard has passed away. Tack kära fina Rikard för allt. Det sitter en pojke på månen, han sjunger stilla sin sång, älska, älska för kärlek, älska en endaste gång!
Let us take care of each other, love and respect each other. And spread love and compassion.
