Day 6 of the blogging marathon with theme ‘Soups and Salads’. Tomato soup is my all time favorite soup and I never knew it could be this simple. This time around to kick it up a notch I roasted the tomatoes to bring out even more flavor. Result was a delicious and creamy soup which we all enjoyed with some homemade croutons. I am also glad that soups don’t intimidate me anymore
. Phew, it has been a week of soups and luckily K did not complain and my mission has been accomplished.
