I love tomato soup! I will take whatever toms I have ripe in the garden, as many as possible, add oil and a bit of water to the bottom of a stock pan, and bring them to a boil. Once the have stewed and softened, I let them cool, and then run them though the food processor and strain off all the skins and seeds. In the meantime, I chop and sautee an onion and garlic cloves to taste in olive oil, then mix all together and simmer gently. Delicious!

I don't like tomato soup. I like tomatos. I like tomato sauce. Something about tomato soup grosses me out. My uncle used to make us eat it as punishment if we didn't clean the horses stalls or bathe them. Jerk! Yuck! Those horses stalls were spotless!
