Soupy Goodness

Last night, I made tomato basil soup. A colleague had given me some homegrown tomatoes earlier this week and added to them Friday. I adore tomatoes but couldn't eat them fast enough. I found this recipe on the Food Network site but of course went off script a bit. I added a bit of garlic and more basil than the recipe called for. And, since it was in the fridge I threw a little heavy cream in for good measure.
It came out completely delicious! It's creamy and tomato-y with just the right amount of basil. I have about two bowls in the fridge, one of which will be dinner tonight. I can't wait!

I love tomato and basil together, possibly the meaning of life.
