First Meal at Home  | Food  | Soups

It wasn't the first meal actually, however it was the first 'real' meal I cooked at home after the honeymoon trip.

I choose not to give detials of the first dish I cooked at the first days of our marriage. Oh my it was a kind of a weird dish of green beans which we both wish to never remember again!

On the other hand I can say that it is way much better now. I'd never cooked a full meal when I was single. Considering this then the real first meal is a sample of success of mine! Haha!

My husband (still sounds strange to call him 'husband') loves soups. Any kind of soup but soup as a starter all the time. I'd once cooked a soup for mommy when she was a bit ill, and it was a simple "medical soup". With such a lack of experience of soup I needed a good start.

Tomato soup!

Sounds simple and feels comfort.

I searched it on a Turkish food blog ( and tried her recipe with a little touch of mine. Result was perfect. Do I need to say that my touch made the soup great?!

It was nice to see the big smile on his face when he took the first sip of the soup. And the rest came as well.

Here my first menu:

Tomato soup
Chicken with soy & curry sauce
Fusilli pasta with pesto sauce
Mixed herb salad

soup and salad

Tomato Soup


1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp plain flour
1/2 tbsp tomato paste
3 medium tomatoes
2 cups water
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp thinly sliced fresh basil


1. Grate tomatoes into a bowl (and of course keep the juice)
2. Add flour and olive oil in a stewpot, and keep stirring on medium fire till the colour of flour turns.
3. Add tomato paste, keep stirring. Just be carefull to not to burn it. Then add grated tomatoes. Cook it comes to boil.
4. Add water, and salt. Let it cook till it gets a bit thicker.
5. Finally, add thinly sliced fresh basil just after you take the stewpot off the fire. You can serve it with cream or grated cheese. We love it plain with basil.
