long time no cook

I know I haven't posted much lately, but I've been on the road, thus eating out exclusively. I'll be home at the end of the month and plan on cooking a lot, but for now, I'll tide you over with one of the best appetizers I've ever experienced- a tiny trio of bisques, in onion, carrot, and celery. They were so cute! And delicious! (As, by the way, am I.) I love soup anyway, but these tiny explosive tastes of smoky onion, hearty carrot, and delicate celery was a fantastic combination, and a lovely lead-in to my filet mignon (medium-rare) with spinach and homemade macaroni and cheese. Oh, and a lovely tiramisu. Is it any wonder I am happiest when eating??

Yum. Sorry the picture is poor; I took it with my phone. For size reference, those 3 spoons are of the demitasse variety:

*whimper* I wanna some soups!

That looks so good. I know that the onion would probably be the first and last spoonful if I had that in front of me.
