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.

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

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!
