Salad Menu - Tomato Soup Recipe

Easy tomato soup

It sure has been a busy summer! Things have been fairly busy, and since summer is short, I have decided to spent more time with my kids rather than working on my site. I even got all the school supplies and clothes all ready and neatly organized. Our summer this year was not as hot as some of the other years, but we got some hot days and we sure used them with pool time and boat riding. Two of my kids learned to swim, so that was a proud mama moment. During the colder, rainy summer days I cooked up soup. This tomato soup was one of them, and it was easy to prepare. Tomatoes are rich in vitamins A, C, K, folate and potassium. It is a filling and satisfying soup. If you love tomatoes you will love this tomato soup.
