I hope everyone is enjoying there beautiful weekend! We are just kind of hanging out and enjoying the great weather.
So I know it's not tomoto season yet but I have really had the taste for tomato
soup. You see I had it all planned out as when to make this because it was really cold and raining one day last week and I thought, "how perfect to make this on a stormy night." That's what I did!
I swear this is the absolute best tasting tomato soup. Years ago I was watching the Barefoot Contessa on t.v. and saw her make this and it looked so easy to make and I absolutely love roasted tomatoes! You can click here to get the recipe. I used ripe plum tomatoes for this but sometimes I mix in cherry tomatoes as well. When the tomatoes are done roasting, break off a piece of rustic bread and put a tomato on it and it's tastes oh...so...good! You'll want to save some for the soup though so don't eat all of them. lol!
I also threw in some sliced garlic to be roasted with the tomatoes. It calls for butter but I didn't use any EB, just olive oil. I also think fresh thyme is better than the dried for this and the red pepper, I cut back on too.
Hope you try it, you won't be dissapointed.
I'm trying to make more raw nut treats to have around so Keaton can just grab them and get his sweet fix. I tried to make these more like an oatmeal cookie. These ones have 1/2C. raw almonds, 1/2C. raw cashews, 8/9 dates, 1/2 C. oatmeal, 2Tbsp. shredded coconut, 2Tbsp. flax seed and dark chocolate chunks. I shaped them into squares.
I'm looking forward to making a raw strawberry cheesecake with Keaton tomorrow.
Have a great rest of your weekend!
