The radiators sounds like a train coming into the station and smell like old people.
My landlord and his friends "do construction" to "improve" the basement practically every weekend. I never knew home improvement smelled so much like marijuana...

Spicy Tomato Soup with Black Beans
1 large can crushed tomatoes
1 small can green chilies
2 cups chicken broth
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon sea salt (I used unsalted tomatoes and low sodium broth so I needed this, but you may not depending on ingredients used.)
1 cup black beans
Heat tomatoes and broth over low heat. Stir in chilies and spices. Once hot, pour into two bowls and add 1/2 cup of beans to each bowl.
