Creamy Tomato Soup

I’m back on the road this week, which means I’m eating on the go here in Salt Lake City.  It’s TEN TIMES less fun to eat healthy on the road when you’ve been cooking up a storm at home, I’ve decided.  I’ve been craving all the things I’ve been making recently and those on my to-try list.  Interestingly, I’ve no interest in eating junk… but I’m just bored with the travel selections this week.

Well, that’s not 100% true… I wanted a gooey brownie yesterday for some strange reason.  I popped into the local Jenny Craig to solve that with a Chocolate Walnut Brownie though.  Emergency handled!  And, quite delish!

Here’s what I really want though:  I’d love to eat this amazing soup, but I see no kitchen here in my hotel room at the Marriott, dear readers.  I feel like I’m roughing it!

I first tried this tasty soup last Friday when I got home from Boise.  It was AMAZING and SUPER-EASY.  If you like tomato soup, this is a quick, delightful recipe that I’m posting JUST for you.  When I made it last week, I only made a half of a batch since I was only home two days.  I so wish I had made the full batch.  So good and very filling.

It comes again from one of my favorite series of cookbooks from Weight Watchers.  Check out the title.  They’re serious about keeping things simple, as should you.
