This is one of my most favorite soups on the planet!
Yesterday at this time I thought I would be writing this post from the hospital. My 6-year-old was supposed to have surgery on his ear yesterday, but there was a different plan for him. After telling him NO EATING, he promptly went downstairs and chewed the chocolate off of a chocolate-covered almond. I called the surgery department and confessed the crime. Surgery was canceled immediately. Food in belly a few hours before surgery = not good. Dan and I spent yesterday doing our best to recalibrate, as we had spent so much time preparing ourselves for surgery and the emotion that goes along with it. Needless to say, it has been a strange past 24 hours!
What I am about to say is more than just a convenient transition. It is totally the truth. A nice hot bowl of this delicious soup has provided me with comfort this week, whether it was as I was preparing for surgery or adjusting to NO surgery. Tomato Basil is one of my all-time favorite soups, and this version is incredible!
Wishing you all a happy week! Thank you for reading!
