It was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad soup!

Start by roasting the veggies, from the recipe. Puree.

Store, over night, in the refrigerator.

Make a roux, with a few tablespoons of butter and flour. (I didn’t measure.)

Think that you should add 4 cups of heavy cream, but measure out 3.5 and realize you don’t have four cups.. and convince yourself that you really only need 2 cups of cream… put rest of cream back in fridge.

Add four cups of water. Immediately “remember” that you only needed 2 cups.

Add puree’d veggies.

Taste.

Tastes like cold cream. Very little tomato flavor.

Panic.

Start yelling for someone to find some condensed tomato soup. Add family size can of condensed tomato soup.

Add a 6 ounce can of tomato paste and a 12 ounce can of reduced sodium V-8 juice, for good measure.

Taste again.

Add another 12 ounce can of reduced sodium V-8 juice.

Taste.

Soup now tastes like tomato juice. That raw, uncooked kind-of taste.

Give up and serve the toasted cheese sandwiches, made with Havarti Cheese, American Cheese, and One Whole Fire-Roasted Chile. (Be too tired to take a photo of your gunky sammich full of yum! :) )

30 minutes later.. remember you didn’t add the better than bouillon.. and never needed the tomato paste or V-8 juice, and really did need four cups of cream..

*sigh*
