Suddenly I want to make all kinds of cozy meals; Hot, creamy soups
Shepherd's Pie, home baked buns... Mmm.
Yesterday, we wanted to sit down to a big hot bowl of tomato soup. Back in my canned-soup buying days, we would often enjoy tomato soup. But I can't bring myself to buy the cans anymore. Especially when I know I can make it at home.
So we did! And, served with garlic toast, the kids didn't even mind it too horribly much. It was not EXACTLY the same, but that's going to happen when we're changing our tastes... I really enjoyed it! And it was super simple to make.
Better Than Condensed Tomato Soup
3 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup tomato juice
1 Tbsp paprika (I did this mostly for color)
dash garlic powder
dash dried onion powder
1. Melt butter in saucepan
2. Blend in flour
3. Whisk in tomato juice and salt. Add slowly to prevent lumps.
4. Cook until smooth and thick. Enjoy!
What are some things you used to buy that you now home-make?
