My sweet friend Melanie gave me a big box of tomatoes fresh out of her garden yesterday. Joy! Happiness! More tomato toast! More BLT’s! Now I can pretend it’s still summer, and enjoy these gems.
I had this tomato soup a few years ago at a Recipe Club dinner and loved it. It takes about 10 minutes to make. I’m sharing my modified version. I cut the amount of cream and butter, so I could eat this for lunch without feeling guilty. Gilt. It’s really a four letter word isn’t it?? If you leave the “u” out. Anyway. I made this and it seemed to be missing something – I know I just said I left out some of the cream and butter. No, it needed a yummy crouton. I froze a few extra pieces of french bread I made a couple of weeks ago, so I pulled that out of the freezer, sliced it up (frozen) and threw it into a pan.
