With mercury dropping day by day, the frequency at which I make tomato soup is increasing. I love it when the soup is bubbling, I get all warm with anticipation!! And some home baked bread with soup is heaven on cold wintry nights!!
I am sure all of us have our own version of this quintessential soup.
Here is my version which keeps us warms and gives us courage to brave one more freezing night!!
