I am excited to write about all things I am passionate about...and some, well, that I may not be passionate about. But all things are happening in this LIFE. And, I want to document and have accountablity to living life with intention. And so it goes...

Sherried Tomato Soup

Oh my goodness... it is SO cold here. The high is less than 10 degrees the next few days. On Monday afternoon, my kiddos were still on Christmas break and Steve took the day off. After many trials and tribulations of finding enough warm coats, gloves, hats, and boots, they finally made it outside to do a little bit of sledding in our dusting of snow that was left.

Soup never sounded so good and The Pioneer Woman posted a blog about 4 different soup recipes that she loves. So I set out for this week to at least try a couple of them. I am not a HUGE fan of tomato soup, but for some reason the comfort of tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches appealed to me. So I set out to our local food market to pick up the ingredients. I found everything except the fresh basil, which I really think would have added a lot to this recipe. Regardless, the recipe was awesome!! If you like tomato soup even a little, you will absolutely love this soup! Sherried Tomato Soup

Did my kids like it you ask??? Yes!! Three-fourths of them did, which I call pretty much success. Paired with the grilled cheese sandwiches it was definitely a meal I will make again and again on a cold winter's day. And Steve loved it too!

Thank you Pioneer Woman for this recipe I am adding to my list of meals!!!

Now, which soup to make next??? Hmmm...maybe the cauliflower.

I tried the Tomato Soup and it was a GREAT success - but beware, if you aren't used to eating a lot of butter and cream you might be running to the bathroom!!! That won't stop me from making it again and again.

Oh my goodness, I am laughing right here. My body must be conditioned for all of the butter and cream. Should I be proud of that??? :)
