that kinda blogger

*another autumn drink :: elderberry concentrate & apple juice for the change in season sickies. a big hit!

*current reads ::

Dry Grass of August for me...(it's ok, just dont know why i cant get thru it).

*horribly sad ::
we had a horrible teacher tradgedy at our charter. he decided not living was easier than living for him...(so sad!).

*tweet tweet tweet ::
i added my @brwnsugarhoney twitter button up top.

*mama's kitchen ::
cooking in my La Creuset dutch oven everyday. soups, sauces,  dishes, everything.
the girls have been sooooo hungry, i decided to make one simple soup a week that they could heat up easily on their own.

{Simple & Delish Tomato-Basil Soup}

2 teaspoons olive oil (i personally like a good drizzle)

3 diced garlic cloves (or to taste)

1 can chicken broth (can add 2 if you like it richer)

4 cans(14.5 ounce)italian stewed canned tomatoes (didn't get many from my garden this year)

2 cups fresh basil, thinly sliced

salt & pepper to taste

fresh feta cheese for sprinkling on top

easy peasy.
you can get as fancy as you want, but i threw it all in my dutch oven & baked in the oven at 350 degrees for about an hour.
after 30 minutes i blended it all with my immersion blender then returned to the oven until the soup thickened & deepened red in color.
afterwards we topped with fresh feta cheese & avocado slices & served with grilled cheese sandwiches.
super simple & good!
*i love reading these types of posts on other sites. im not so much of a linky girl. i've tried it a couple of times & it makes me nervous for some reason. 
maybe one day i will brave it again :)
