Tomato Basil Soup and a Milk glass MENU plate

Published with Blogger-droid v1.6.5

I attached some vinyl letters and shapes to a vintage milk glass platter to create a 'dry erase' board. This would also work to make a daily to do list.

Tomato Basil Soup

4 cups tomatoes peeled and chopped
4 cups tomato juice
12 to 14 fresh basil leaves
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup butter
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Fresh basil leaves

Combine tomatoes and tomato juice in saucepan; simmer over med low heat. 30 minutes.
Cool slightly, place in blender or food processor with basil leaves and purée in batches.
Return to saucepan and add whipping cream and butter. Stir over low heat until cream and butter are incorporated.
Season with salt and pepper.
Garnish with basil leaves, if desired.

Serve with crusty bread.
