These tomatoes are the last in my garden for the season.
I decided to make an old recipe of mine, a spicy & clear tomato soup.
Straight from the garden, with a veggie base to enhance the flavor.
Such a simple recipe, and the taste is to die for!
The addition of a couple cloves gives it a spicy taste, (a tip from grandma.)
The perfect side is a grilled cheese sandwich,
I made with my sons home-made rye bread. soooo good !
My neighbor made this recipe,
and added pop-corn for a garnish. Sounds good.
