Oh tomatoes! I cannot wait until they are heavy on the vine, bursting with juice and seeds, ready for BLT’s, tomato sandwiches on homemade white bread, slathered with mayonnaise, cut into wedges ready to scoop up chunky blue cheese dip, or just sliced with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkling of salt and pepper.
Since the fresh, native ones haven’t arrived yet, I will satisfy my tomato craving with this soup. All that is required is a few cans of good tomatoes along with the other ingredients that jazz up the flavor. It reminds me a little of a cross between a BLT and a thick tomato soup that would go great with a melty, gooey grilled cheese sandwich for dunking.
