Tomato Soup Revisited

Written By Srimathi Mani on Saturday, May 24, 2008 | 1:37 PM

It was a cold and chilly day here in San Diego and that made me just want to cuddle up with my blanket and read a book. This weather was so perfect for something warm and comforting to drink/eat. The most comforting soup for me is Tomato Soup and so I decided to make myself some. I remembered that Mythreyee of Paajaka had posted on Tomato Soup and I decided to adapt her recipe as it was so easy and simple to follow. I did make a few changes here and there but I think I still was able to make some comforting soup for me and my family to have for lunch.
