Chicken Tomato Soup

I started teaching my daughter and her friends how to cook when they were in middle school, during summer breaks. We'd have a end of the school year party and somehow her friends never seemed to go home the next day. Rule was, to stay they had to learn to cook and sew. (Their husbands thank me, now!) Thankfully, my daughter took after me, her grandmother and great grandmothers in loving to cook and especially making more from scratch than out of a box. This recipe was the first one that my daughter gave to me instead of the other way around!
