We finally had our friends Drew and Jorie to dinner...only took 9 months. I made several small plates, two I'll highlight.

I made a simple salad of arugula, pomegranate seeds, and feta. I drizzled this with a little EVOO and balsamic glaze and seasoned with salt and pepper.

For a simple soup I made a variation on the basic tomato soup I've mentioned in the past. I didn't thin with any stock and let the soup cook over low heat for a couple of hours. This really intensified the flavors, with out much work. I also topped it with some fried onion. To make these, thinly slice onion, toss with flour to coat and fry in a touch of oil until they are golden. Remove and pat dry on a paper towel and season with salt.
