TOMATO SOUP ON VALENTINE'S DAY??


Some are baking heart shaped chocolate cakes, some are cooking up elaborate meals for their beloved but I am stirring up a simple pot of Soup b'cause that is what my husband loves the most!, and this is not your regular tomato soup but a strong, nutritious blend of the most healthy veggies and also the most appetizing and digestive herbs so after 5 bowlfuls and a very satisfied look on his face I know Valentine's day is going to be great!!

Soup is just the thing in this weather, at least where I am. We actually had tomato soup and grilled cheese for valentines lunch, so you aren't as unusual as you think.
