This delicious tomato soup was wonderful and very warming on a totally chilly day. I found the recipe on www.yourhomebasedmom.com. However, as usual, I had to improvise like I always do when cooking. Here's my version of her recipe. (by the way her blog is a delightful place for finding recipes.)
Briefly cook in about 2 or 3 tablespoons of olive oil:
1/2 onion, 3 cloves finely chopped garlic, 2 or 3 fresh Roma tomatoes chopped
Add about 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh herbs
(I used basil and oregano from my garden pots)
Add 2 cans tomato sauce - bring to a soft bubble for a few minutes.
Serve with cilantro finely chopped (easy to grow in a pot)
add cubed cheese if desired
For dessert I served freshly baked blackberry pie (exactly as the recipe is on her blog).
I forgot to take a picture but it looked just like the picture on Leigh Anne's blog.
The long hike in the forest wore out all the children so they collapsed in front of the tiny AC unit in the tiny living room afterwards. Wall to wall children watching the tiny TV!!!
But what a fun time riding the horses Beth and Dave brought up.
Oh the campfire was an adventure for those who could stay awake(everyone except Gramie)
So much creativity!!!!
