Cream of Tomato Soup for T & C

The first time I took part in Taste and create was in 2009.I have been a part of it ever since.Taste and create is an event started by Nicole of For the love of food.Each month bloggers sign up and a partner list is created and we have to create dishes from the partner's blog.The main idea behind this event is to create a community of bloggers who can try out recipes from other blogs and share the recipes and their thoughts about it.

This month I was paired with 3 sides of crazy.She has a lovely blog and the header alone was enough to interest me!I browsed through her blog and found some soup recipes that I thought I must try. This is one of the recipes I had bookmarked from section for soups where she has prepared soups from 'scratch' ingredients instead of opting for creamed condensed soup which has preservatives.

It was threatening to rain last evening. The winds were howling away. It was the perfect time to prepare this soup. We had this soup with a couple of toasts and absolutely loved the flavor.
