Homemade Tomato Bisque!!!

Growing up my mother always made fresh soups weekly. 

I have vivid memories of coming home from school to homemade tomato soup, one of my favorites and so easy to make. This recipe can be made with milk or without, depending on what your family enjoys.  

Sooooo yummy on a cold day!  Enjoy.

Tomato Bisque
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped carrots

Saute the above ingredients in a little butter or canola oil until translucent. Add 1 tablespoon of white flour to thicken the veggie mixture.  Add two 12-ounce cans of whole tomatoes, drained and chopped, 1 tsp. sugar and 1 tsp. fresh basil. Stir….

Add 4 cups chicken or veggie broth and 1 bay leaf.

Cover and simmer for 30 minutes.  Discard Bay leaf and puree the soup.  

Add 2 cups of whole or 2% milk (optional), salt and pepper to taste.

Happy New Year!

I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving:
To reach Centerpeace, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it, but we must sail….
and not drift, nor lie at anchor.   I wish you a New Year filled with self exploration and growth.
Take time to elevate you.  Let go of the clutter that surrounds you, limiting your vision of what is truly
important in your life.  As you create this new space, your loved ones will hold greater value.  

Empower their presence, filling your life with precious moments.  Time is sacred.  Tomorrow is a gift, not a promise. Make it count.  I look forward to seeing you in class with energy,strength and desire as we continue our journey towards Centerpeace.  Happy New Year!
