Easy tomato soup recipe that is truly comfort food at its best!
Winter temperatures are a great excuse to warm up with a hot bowl of soup. Don’t you agree? I love soup… and while I enjoy canned soup on occasion, I love a good homemade soup too! I’ve made many homemade soups in my day; however, I had never tried my hand at an easy tomato soup recipe. Well, there’s no better time than the present, eh?
I think my love for soup started as a child. My mom made some delicious soups. My mouth is watering just thinking about some of them. Potato Soup was one of my faves. Would you believe that my hubby isn’t a big fan of soup? He doesn’t seem to think it’s a meal. Woe is me. I don’t let that stop me. No siree! I enjoy a lot of soup during the lunch hour, which is exactly when this soup was made.
