Cream of Tomato Soup
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.

This is the best tomato soup ever. I have recommended this recipe to many and I also add that the seasoned oyster crackers are a MUST. When you first put the oyster crackers with the oil and other ingredients it seems extremely oily....don't worry...they turn out delicious and you will find yourself munching on them as a snack after the soup is gone.
My family loves grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup. A couple of years ago we traveled to Galveston, TX where "Tomato Basil" soup is pretty popular in many of the local restaurants. I tried it, and loved it. When I came across this recipe, it was a must, and has been a much requested recipe ever since. With fall in the air, it will be making a repeat performance very soon. The only ingredient that I changed, or altered, was the stewed tomatoes (I pureed them first) because my hubby doesn't like chunks of tomato in anything. And the accompaning seasoned oyster crackers are a hit too (they are not as greasy as the traditional recipe for them that has been around for years). It does reheat well.
