Tomato Soup

Tomato soup is just amazing! I know, we can all pop a can of the Campbell’s version open and enjoy immediately but there is just something about a good homemade tomato soup! Try this super easy version and pair it will a grilled cheese! You won’t be sorry. Especially as the weather is taking a cooler turn!
