What's For Dinner?

Creamy Tomato Soup

This recipe makes enough for two adults. I made it up based on several recipes I found online. I do not have precise measurements for the spices, as I just kind of threw it together, so what I have here is an approximation.

Ingredients:
3-4 tomatoes, chopped
½ cup chicken stock
3-4 whole cloves
¼ tsp chopped garlic
¼ tsp basil
¼ tsp oregano
1 tbs grated parmesan cheese
2 pats of butter
1 tbs flour
¼ cup heavy cream

Directions:
Heat chicken stock over medium heat, adding chopped tomatoes with seeds and skin, cloves, garlic, basil and oregano. Cover and simmer about 10 minutes.

Pick out the cloves with a fork, add parmesan cheese and puree mixture in a blender or food processor. Set aside.

Melt the butter in a fresh pan, adding the flour to make a base. Add the pureed mixture to the flour and butter. Stir in cream.

Serve hot with – what else – grilled cheese sandwiches!
