Fireman Bob's Unique and Unusal Tomatoe Soup/Sauce

Bob Cooney


Last night I went into the kitchen and started to cook up a simple, quick and easy meal. I chopped up 5 medium russet potatoes, chopped up 1 large onion, and 1 garden fresh tomatoe.
I got the large skillet out and placed butter, extra virgin olive oil and the potatoes and tomato. My first inclination was to just cook these up and have a fried dinner....
Well, as You know me by now, a " Simple " meal and I don't exist! Lol !!!
What I ended up with will be in my recipes as a very versatile " SoupSauce "...
What is a " SoupSauce " You ask ??? It is anything You want it to be.
Here we go!
