Potage de Tomate (or Tomato Soup if you prefer!!)

Recipe by Georgia Girl

This is a very tasty "homemade" tomato soup that isn't a lot of trouble to make. My family likes it for supper with grilled cheese sandwichs

This soup is amazing - It's so good I'm giving it 10 stars! I made it just as the recipe called for and didn't change a thing and I never will! I used the stick blender and didn't have to strain it. I did separate 1/2 of it to freeze (before I added the cream) because I knew it would be too much for just the two of us. I served it with grilled cheese, bacon and tomato sandwiches. Mmmmmm. I made this a second time - this makes a lot - had enough to serve to a family of 6 and still had enough left over to freeze for another time.
