Nanny's Tomato Soup

Recipe by Elizabeth Fullerton

This recipe was my grandmother's passed down to my father and then to me. It's a simple soup that is my favorite comfort food.

If you want to make the recipe a little richer, add cream instead of milk or add a dollop of sour cream to it when serving. Sometimes I will add some basil when I'm feeling fiesty.
