Guest Blogging: Fee’s Cream of Tomato Soup

January 2, 2011

From the previous New Years post you might be wondering about our little girls. Believe me Serafina and Elaine were fully engaged in the New Years festivities. To avoid being on the highway late that night, we decided to go over early in the day so the girls could play, and then have a slumber party. Since Serafina is cruising and Elaine is walking, the two of them make quite the destructive pair. Sometimes, like when they bang on the windows, it is in cheerful unison, other times, like when Serafina kept stealing Elaine’s toys, it was in complete opposition. Elaine is learning Serafina’s name, and Serafina is learning to follow Elaine’s lead.

Serafina and Elaine try to take down the house.

 

Deciding to have a classic kiddie meal, we enjoyed really yummy tomato soup and grilled cheese. Fee cooked the soup, so it is really her recipe. Although she claims the meal was haphazard, it was wonderfully delicious. So, written in her own words, here is Fee’s tomato soup for a cold winter day.

Fee’s Cream of Tomato Soup

  • 1 Onion
  • 1-2 cloves of minced Garlic
  • 1-2 tb Butter
  • 1 Big Can of Whole Tomatoes
  • 2-3 cups of Veggie Broth
