Debbie's Story

I am not too much of a tomato soup fan, but I just love this wonderful soup.It not only tastes good, it makes a beautiful presentation. Simply add some crunchy garlic bread sticks and you have a special meal in a hurry.

Thanks, Martha! I just don't understand some folks. If I like a recipe, I pinch it or comment. If I don't, I move on to the next one. Odd!

Geez, Penny....you don't have to make it. You don't even need to look at the recipe. Do us a favor....don't even COMMENT. It's JUST A RECIPE!!!! There are so many wonderful recipes here....THOUSANDS. IMO, it's not necessary to NIT-PICK on ingredients. If the ingredients don't appeal to you, MOVE ON! I happen to like this recipe VERY MUCH!!!! Debbie, again, THANK YOU for sharing this recipe :) :) :)

Lordy, it is just soup! It was good enough for the kitchen crew to earn me a blue ribbon, but if it bothers someone, don't make it. It is OK with me. I am not heartbroken at all. As for me and my house, we love it and from the looks of it, so do a lot of other folks.
