Creamy Tomato Soup

Today seemed like a great day to make some homemade soup for lunch.  It's in the 60s and very windy.  I have been working hard to make more things homemade for our meals and this one has been on my list to try.  My hubby works close to home and my kids aren't in school yet, so we eat all three meals at home together.  It can be very difficult to please everyone's tastes, but everyone loved lunch today!  Tomato soup and grilled cheese!

Mix all ingredients (except the cream) in a saucepan and simmer for 30 minutes.  Heat cream cream separately and add to soup when you are ready to serve it!  So simple!

Note:  I did puree my tomatoes to make this a smoother soup.  Also, the original recipe called for 2 cups cream and I found that one was plenty.  Feel free to add more or less!

Don't forget the grilled cheese sandwiches!  I made a cheese quesadilla for me!  So yummy!
