Homemade Tomato Soup

So, no quilting picture today.  No quilting has been done around here lately!  I have a bee meeting tomorrow and I haven't even done my project yet!  What have I been doing, you ask?

Caulking, scraping, sanding, painting, etc.  I did finish my curtain project for the laundry room, too.  I'll post pictures of that soon.  So I've been a real handyman lately.  We're trying to get lots on little projects done around the house before Spring.  And we're making progress!

Today I did take time away from the household projects to cook supper.  Homemade Tomato Soup.  Yum.  My own recipe.


2 medium white onions, chopped
2 tablespoons butter
2 25 ounce cans crushed tomatoes 
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 heaping teaspoons dried basil
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
2 cups lowfat milk

In a dutch oven, saute onions in butter until soft and transparent, but not browned.  Add tomatoes, lemon juice, basil, and garlic salt.  Bring to a boil, turn down the heat, and simmer for 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally.

In small batches, puree tomato mixture in blender.  Return pureed mixture to dutch oven.  Add milk.  Cook over medium heat for an additional 10 minutes or until heated through.  If desired, top each serving with grated Romano cheese.  Enjoy.
