Soup warms the soul

With this lovely cool weather, it is time to get our soup on!
Tomato soup is a favorite of ours for lunch... or supper. Perfect with some crusty bread or crunchy cheesy bread!
We make this soup often for lunch. It is that easy and that good. You could add some small pasta to make it more like a spaghetti-o type treat (only SOOOO much better for you) :)

Tomato Soup

1 29 oz can of diced tomatoes or a quart of your canned tomatoes YUM!
1 10 1/2 oz can of condensed chicken stock but homemade is BETTER!
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp onion chopped fine
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 cups of heavy cream
I also added a little organic ketchup to make it a bit more tomato-ey!!

Simmer all ingredients except cream together in a stock pot for 1 hour.
Add cream and take a hand blender or whatever type of blender you have to puree your soup. 

Serve Hot with some homemade bread!!!

Enjoy!
