Creamy Tomato Soup

The photo editing program I was using
is no longer available so I'm searching for
one that will work.  I thought this was it
but as you can see, the enlarged image is fuzzy!
I'll keep trying!

It's cold outside!

It's the first bit of winter we've had all winter and it's FEBRUARY!!

It's a great day for soup.

But, of course, I wasn't planning on soup, because it's not been cold enough for soup.

Life can be a vicious cycle!

I looked in my cabinet to see what I could throw together -- thinking in my mind that my boy cherub loves tomato basil soup.

I found the above ingredients . . .
 . . .so I created!

Creamy Tomato Soup

1 can Progresso Hearty Tomato Soup
1 can diced tomatoes, drained
1-2 squeezes basil
1 1/2 tsp. sugar
1/3 cup half and half
1 TBSP butter

Place all of the ingredients in a pan and use an immersion blender to make smooth.  If you don't have an immersion blender, place the tomatoes and soup in your blender, pulse until smooth and then pour into a pan, adding other ingredients.

Heat over medium low heat until thoroughly warmed.

Enjoy with croutons or a grilled cheese sandwich and a salad.
