366 days of gratitude

It’s a truth universally acknowledged that lunch on a cold day is in want of hot soup.

Should that soup be homemade tomato* served with grated Parmesan cheese and toast, so much the better.

Today was such a cold day the soup, freshly made, hit the spot and there’s plenty left over for several more lunches for which I’m grateful.

(*Take as much garlic and onion as you like, sautéed until just soft, add to cans of tomatoes (much cheaper and generally tastier than fresh ones at this time of year), tomato paste and salt, basil, thyme and oregano to taste; bring to the boil then simmer gently, stirring now and then to stop it sticking on the bottom until the flavours mingle)

    Sour cream is the thing to add to tomato soup

    Great dollops of sour cream
