Homemade Tomato Soup

Me and my husband grew up on Campbell’s Tomato soup and just loved having it with a grill cheese sandwich.  I decided to just make my own and here is what I came up with. It easy to make and you can have this for lunch or dinner.

Ingredients:

1 can diced tomatoes          IMG_0659

1/2 tsp. sugar

1 bouillon cube

1 28oz can tomato puree

2 cloves of garlic minced

Olive oil

2 cups chicken broth

½ tsp. dried basil

½ cup heavy cream

Step:

Heat oil in a Dutch oven pan and sauté the garlic over medium heat for about 2 or 3 minutes. Do not let the garlic burn.

Now add in the can of tomato puree, diced tomatoes, chicken broth and all of the spices and stir until well blended.

Heat soup on medium high for 10 minutes and then lower the heat to medium low and add in the heavy cream. Stir the cream in soup until it is mixed throughout.

Let this simmer on low for about 10 minutes stirring constantly and then soup is done.

Happy Mail

I just love coming home from work and I have Happy mail on my desk.  I got the below from @Pretty Cute Planner on Etsy.  I love the color of her stickers and washi.

 

A Few Hauls

I needed to do my Target Dollar spot.  This is my fav of the whole store.  I didn’t get that much, but wanted to share.   I finally found the desk organizer for my papers so I had to pick that up too.

I also went to Michael’s hoping to cash out with some washi but no luck with that.  However, I did find my planner pen pouch and it was on clearance one of my favorite words.  I only shop at Michael’s when there is a sale of there are coupons.  Everything I got here was 60% off.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have been making these chocolate chip cookies for over 7 years now.  I found this recipe in “Sweet Maria’s Cookies Jar” recipe book and they are great.  This is a classic chocolate chip cookie recipe but it is the best.

 

Ingredients

½ pound butter, softened      IMG_0188

¾ cup sugar

¾ cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 eggs

2/14 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

2/12 cups chocolate chips

1 cup walnuts coarsely chopped (optional)

 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. In an electric mixer, on medium speed, cream the butter, sugar, and brown sugar until light. Add vanilla, and eggs. Mix until well blended.
  3. On low-speed, add flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix just until blended.
  4. Stir In chocolate chips and nuts
  5. Drop dough from a teaspoon onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet, spacing cookies 2 inches apart.
  6. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned.
  7. Remove cookies sheet from the oven. Using a metal spatula, remove cookies from the cookie sheet and place on a wire cooling rack. Cool on wire racks. Store cookies in an airtight container.
