The brain is functioning a bit better today. At the very least, I had the motivation to get to the grocery store and to get back into the kitchen. It's another rushed day, so this will be a rushed post so that I can get the kitchen cleand up and get into bed at a reasonable hour.
This tomato soup is very good. I could not bring myself to use the full amount of butter (I used about half) and did not use any cream (I substituted 2% because I needed to use some up, but it's great without any milk products). I served the soup with red grapes and whole grain bread spread with leftover pesto.
