So a lot is going on this week.
It’s fantastic and hectic and OMG I need wine. Except I am doing Whole30 so… crap!
There are only a few more days left until this Whole30 is over, so I’ll survive. Plus, this extra push and busy schedule is made crazier by the time I will miss from attending Everything Food Conference next week, but soooooooo worth it.
There will be a lot of running around this weekend but it we’ll get the never ending to-do lists done. Or at least I’ll just wash all the laundry and leave it in the basket until the end of time.
The one thing I know that will happen is that I am going to make another batch of this Roasted Tomato Soup. Seriously, I’m not just saying that. I can’t get enough of this soup.
I used the never ending supply of tomatoes from our Tomato Picking Adventures to make this soup. Several batches actually.
Plum, Roma, or whatever tomato you can get your hands on will make a delicious soup. Use a variety of tomatoes. Whatever.
Same with the herbs, use what you have on hand. But just make sure to use fresh herbs. There is a big difference there.
Eat this soup piping hot and with an extra drizzle of oil on top. And be sure to make a rocking grilled cheese to dunk into there. You’ll thank me.
