Remember those tomato plants that I started from seeds (you can see them starting here)? ... well are still flourishing! I am still getting tomato's (late for us in NY)!
This is giving me a wonderful excuse to share with neighbors and best of all try new recipes!
I recently made one of my favorites... Spicy Tomato Soup -- yes the spicy is my twist on the recipe I found here.
I started by chopping plum and big boy tomato's from the garden.
Measured them up to get the 4 cups that are needed.
Here is my own addition: 1 average size Cheyenne pepper. I chopped this seeds and all and added it to the tomato base.
I did leave the cloves and onion out since I didn't have them on hand; however I substituted some onion powder to help with the flavor.
As the mixture started to heat up it really started to smell so warm and comforting!
I used two bouillon cubes and water in place of chicken broth.
Once the base cooks through it is ready to be put through the Foley mill. (I have used that Foley mill so much since I have gotten it!)
Round and round and round it goes!
Ta Da! A homemade bowl of tomato soup that has a slight kick.
That night we also whipped up a few homemade chicken pizza's. Fresh mozzarella and basil, left over lemon pepper chicken, and swiss cheese.
Those were some good pies!!
Comfort food always puts me in a better mood!!
