My sister Sandy loved cream of tomato soup, it was her favorite! I was always partial to broth based soups, chicken noodle, beef vegetable etc. Well, I made a cream of tomato soup using a tip from a friend of mine and it reminded me of why my sister loved cream of tomato so much. It was thick and rich with real cream and butter and with a sweetness that only comes from ripe, delicious tomatoes!
