If You Always Do What You've Always Done...Then You'll Always Get What You Always Got

Last night, a friend said I must try miso soup. I have some miso paste for Japanese-style dishes, but I've never had miso soup. He handed over 2 packets of the miso, and 2 packets of the ... you know, the other stuff you put in it. He did tell me what the flavours were, but I neglected to take notes - and it's been a long time since I read any Japanese so I'm not so sure. (The yellow one is K6 if there are any people in the know reading this).
I thought (due to its salty factor) this would be a good post-run snack. I think I'm right. Liquid, quick, and salty. I still followed it with chicken and kale, but it was a great starter. And I can't wait to try the other flavour. Whatever it may be.
This was almost a New Thing. Well, it is a New Thing... Today, I ate my first home-grown tomato. It was so good! So good, in fact, that you get a bonus photo. I ate it with fried haloumi; a (delivered) organic tomato; 3 wrinkly but finally red cherry tomatoes (also from the garden); and basil, chives and parsley from the garden. The large tomato is a Black Russian, so even though it looks a bit green still, it was quite ripe.
