The other day I realized that I could buy broth with my declining balance! This was perfect because I was really in the mood for some tomato soup. I happened to have a full onion in my fridge, so I didn’t end up having to go out to buy anything. I started with the onion (I had to wear my new onion goggles to cut them….best christmas present) added to butter and oil. This was followed by a can of whole tomatoes and broth. While this was heating up, I thickened my half and half with flour and butter to make it more like heavy cream. Then I took the tomato mixture and pureed it in a blender, retuned it to the pan, and added the cream. Perfect tomato soup!
