This is something that I actually made last week, but since it was still NaPoWriMo I didn’t get a chance to write about it, and I didn’t want to make a poem about soup.
At Nordstrom Cafe they have this Roma Tomato Basil Soup, which I fell in love with so I decided to try a hand at making it. I followed and tweaked the recipe I found here: Chef Mommy.
I should have considered the ingredient volume before making it because I had to split it into two pots and had to run it through my Vitamix in 6 separate batches.
And what’s better than grilled cheese to accompany this soup? Nothing, unless you’re making it in this. I was gifted this many Christmas’ ago and now just finally brought it out to play.
It was delicious. Jp hates tomatoes but she enjoyed it just as much as I did. Especially since she was sick! I told her not to come back home from Canada with an International Disease, but she still did 😦
People at work saw us eating this and commented about how much they liked the tomato soup from Nordy’s. I guess it’s a good thing I made such a huge batch because I was able to pack some up for the moms at work. I know that they’re busy and can’t make a home cooked meal for their family sometimes (or even themselves!), so I packed some in mason jars and pyrex for them. Next time though, I will remember to scale down recipes if necessary ^_^
The weather is so strange out here. Super hot one day, and raining the next like this morning. Boo. But I will be looking into summertime-ish recipes soon.
