I'm Not Mad and I Eat

Ho! This is not strawberry soup!
'Maters again today, and once again, not cooked. This is a tiny bowl of Purple Cherokee tomato soup. For the two of us, I ran about four medium-sized ones through the food mill to eliminate the skin and seeds (along with one dumb ol' red Champion or some such we bought at the farmers' market). Seasoned with a little salt and pepper and one finely minced scallion. Chilled for about 20 minutes, and devoured with bread and butter. Beloved husband and co-cook garnished the bowls with halved Sungolds -- what a startling contrast of marigold-yellow with deep magenta.
