Creamy Totato Basil Soup

Oh, Hello fall! We Welcome You with open arms. We welcome seeing nature take on different colors. We welcome boots and sweaters and scarves on a daily basis (I really, really like my scarves.). We welcome hot coffee on repeat. But..drum roll, please. We welcome soups and comfort food of all kinds, oh yes! Nothing better at the end of a busy day of running around and doing mom stuff, than sitting your family down at the table and serving them a bowl of hot soup. Bellies satisfied and conversation ongoing, what a beautiful close to a long day. I love our family’s version of tomato basil soup. Not sure about you, but for me, it’s really hard to get all of the children to eat vegetables. I mean, really hard. So I love that I can take celery, carrot, and onion and puree them for added flavor.  The additional vegetables really do give so much flavor to the tradition tomato soup you may be used to making. But friends, the best part about this soup? My kiddos, who strongly dislike tomatoes and vegetables – love this soup! Like what? So those of you holding back because your picky eaters may not approve, just do it. 🙂 🙂 Enjoy some fresh homemade bread with this soup or chipotle sandwich

Not only is the soup really delicious, it’s extremely easy to make and takes so little time to put everything together. This is that soup that you can have everything done from start to finish in less than 30 minutes. Yahooo. As you wait for your family to settle down and get ready for dinner, mama, go pamper yourself. Enjoy some quiet time. You have outdone yourself with a really delicious dinner and can now rest! Even if it’s just sitting on the sofa with a hot cup of tea as the noise of children’s laughter fill your tired ears. It’s amazing how little a woman needs to feel rejuvenated.

(NOTE: Because I care about you. Be sure to hold lid of blender shut tightly when blending, or elsee.. Not saying that I didn’t and I had tomato mixture everywhere.. but.. just saying, so you don’t,. be sure to keep lid closed tightly. Wink, wink.)

ENJOY FRIENDS! Don’t forget to leave us a comment if you too loved (or disliked) the recipe. We love hearing your feedback.
