from my OWN tomatoes!!! out of my garden!!
the truth is
i made tomato soup yesterday too
but i'm not really sure why i thought
that tomato soup
made with carrots
and vegetable broth
would not taste like
because it did.
it totally did.
it smelled like vomit.
and the carrots left a weird texture.
and it smelled like vomit.
i had to throw it out.
i started from scratch.
i had liked about 6 different recipes
so ended up pulling a little from each
i roasted the tomatoes with garlic and onion
and then put it in the ninja and
mushed it up
(disclaimer #1 - i never claimed that i could write a recipe
so bear with me...i don't know the technical terms)...
then put it in the slow cooker
with CHICKEN BROTH
(not vegetable broth...)
and basil pesto, cream, a handful of sugar,
a dollop of butter, salt & pepper
and it worked!
it was so good!
even 17, who said "i don't like tomato soup"
dipped his grilled cheese & bacon into our soup
and then said..."well...i don't like heinz tomato soup...
but this? This is good"
and went & got a bowl for himself.
i should start a cooking youtube channel...
and call it
cooking with luck or something equally clever.
disclaimer #2 - the amazing grilled cheese & bacon sandwiches
were not cooked by me.
i do not handle cooking any food that spits hot grease at me.
That's S's department
(and he makes the BEST grilled cheese & bacon).
