    Sharon123's Note:

    A delicious soup for the early fall, made with late harvest tomatoes and the first fennel of the season. The acidity of the tomatoes witll retard the cooking of the vegetables, so be sure they are very tender before adding them. Include the fennel trimmings in the stock, they'll enrich the flavor. Adapted from the Fields of Greens restaurant in San Fransisco.

      Scaled this back 2 of us and it was also my first time using fennel and I used tin tomatoes so it was super quick to make and made a wonderfully filling lunch for the DM and I. I did use some croutons that I already had and they well so well with the soup. Thank you Sharon123, made for your cook-a-ton in memory of Jim.
