Rain or Shine, Win or Loose...Let's Just Have Soup








Into all lives a little rain must fall.
Anyone who follows SEC football knows that the Tennessee Vols are having a really bad year. Skylar's screaming and crying as she tugs at her Tennessee jersey is not much different from the reactions demonstrated by men all across Tennessee.
Even the Vols lackluster season will not put a damper on our October.
The same is true with the weather. Yesterday, pretty weather and a neighbor's wagon full of pumpkins provided the perfect setting for some pretty fall photos. This morning, we have woken up to a rain; which threatens to keep us indoors. Nonetheless its a great day for some nice, comforting soup. Here is a simple recipe for one of my favoite soups. It is so good with a grilled cheese sandwich and a glass of milk. Whether I am eating a bowl of chili while watching my Vols lose, or sipping soup from a cup on a rainy day; soup seems to make it all better!
Creamy Tomato Soup
To a can of condensed tomato soup, add a cup or so of milk or half-and-half.
Add a pinch of salt, pinch of pepper and a tablespoon of either basil or dill.
Simmer until it comes to a slow boil, stirring as it simmers.

We fry tiny bits of bacon with onions and add it to tomato soup with a little cheese. Makes a great soup.

Sara, that sounds so good. I'm thinking it's a BLT in a bowl. Croutons would be delish in that soup.
