Roasted Tomato, Red Pepper, and Basil Soup

15 Aug

As most of you who have gardens know very well, it’s prime season for tomatoes… to the point where you have so many of them you have NO idea what to do with them all!

Pat & I belong to a CSA in Madison, and it’s our first year doing it so we didn’t quite know what to expect. Here’s what we’ve found: the pure quantity of veggies we get weekly is astounding, and we split a share with my sister and her husband… I can’t imagine what a full share looks like!!  I am absolutely loving all the fresh veggies and it’s just now started to catch up with us, so I think we’ve done well so far.

Right now, this means currently we have bags full of tomatoes, garlic, basil, and onions sitting on our counter. Continue reading


Stuffed Green Pepper Soup

Chicken Tortilla Soup

It’s another recipe made in the crockpot, but how much easier could this get? I make a note to keep these items on hand at all times so I can make it whenever I don’t feel like cooking. It is so simple, and it has such a great flavor.  I take it to work often, along with a little container of cheese/sour cream/tortilla chips to add. Continue reading
