The weather outside has been frightful so I decided to make the inside delightful! I was looking at my poor old tomato plants in the rain Saturday and knew I had to make a decision. We had been eating them for weeks and there were a dozen left on the vine looking pretty tired. Soup!! Fresh tomato soup!! With lots of garlic and onion and splash of this and a dollop of that and before I knew it, my kitchen had become una cucina italiana!!! The smells and flavours were so inviting and the result was so exciting! I think I will try it again this week and freeze more soup for those long days of winter!
