I have had very little time to do much of anything since they have been sick, but I did make a big crock pot of tomato soup so we could have something nutritious to eat, even if we did not feel like eating. I thought I would take a moment to share the recipe with you all before I go back to nurse-maiding my little furbabies.
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 stalk of chopped celery
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning (oregano and basil)
1 teaspoon salt (to taste)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 quarts strained tomato puree, or tomato juice
Turn crock pot on low and put 1 quart of tomato puree/juice in and cover
Put onion, celery, seasoning, garlic powder, salt, sugar and pepper in a blender with the remaining quart of tomato puree/juice and blend until the consistency is totally smooth.
Pour the contents of the blender into the crock pot and stir till well mixed.
Cook for 6 to 8 hours or until the soup is the consistency you prefer it to be.
To serve, I stir a tablespoon of cream (butter also works) into the bowl and sprinkle grated cheese and fresh chopped parsley on top, and serve with crackers or biscuits.
Please send good thoughts our way, we are going through a very hard time right now. :(
