|There's just something about tomato soup...|
I've been doing a lot of thinking lately about my life and career. I'm in a transitional phase, no longer teaching full-time (It was a good, year-long experiment) and working towards "the next thing," whatever that might be. One thing that happened over the course of my year is... I gained some weight. I'd been eating much junkier and most of my activity was sitting around a theatre telling people what to do and where to go. The other day I pulled Mark Bittman's VB6 off my bookshelf to give it a second pass. Bittman writes that we should be eating way more vegetable product and way less animal product, and so he proposes going Vegan Before 6 p.m. So... high time for some soup, I think, and the return of An Actor Prepares Lunch!
A Tomato Soup
1 hour prep, 45 min cook time
Take some time to quarter and de-seed 3 lbs. of tomatoes (Roma are easier to work with, I find). Also, chop up a yellow onion and a red bell pepper, while you're at it.
|All the tomatoes.|
Vegan and delicious!
All in the Timing is a collection of one-act comedies by David Ives. Premiered at Primary Stages, New York City, December 1993, although individual one-acts had their own premieres prior to this staging.
