Tomato Soup Recipe

Tomato Soup

Saute one chopped onion until tender.  Add 2 cans of chopped tomatoes. Add a can of white beans such as Northern. You can drain and rinse the beans if you want.  Add a healthy squirt of barbeque sauce (about 1/4 cup)  or ketchup whichever is handy.  Add a dash or 2 of hot sauce. Add a can of chicken or vegetable broth. Add about a teaspoon of dried basil and oregano.  Stir and cook about 5 minutes or so. Using a ladle spoon into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.  You may have to repeat this process a couple of times.  Add salt and pepper to taste. Return to the stove to reheat or the microwave.

It makes enough for about 4 bowls of soup.  You can put it in a bowl and freeze for later.

I adapted this recipe from one that was published in the American Profile insert of the News Herald.

I've had a shop on Etsy since 2007. Actually I started in 2006 but closed that shop and opened my present shop, SewUpscale. .I guess you would say I'm an "Old Timer". 

During that time, my quilted art postcards have been--  

1. Featured in Art Quilting Studio Magazine
2. Sold in the Texas Quilt Museum Gift Shop
3. Commissioned to make postcards for RJR Fabric using Danscape fabric
4. Used in a magazine ad for RJR Fabrics
5. Contracted to make many quilted art pieces for LeBonheur Children's Hospital and the Cancer Clinic in Memphis, Tennessee
6. Sold in area art galleries including Hamilton Williams Gallery in Morganton, NC and Mountain Made Gallery in Asheville, NC.
