roasted tomato soup

Fun Fact!

Did you know that until this here recipe for tomato soup I had only had it once before in all my 34 years?  Well it’s true and I really only had about 3.25 spoonfuls before I probably used some unsavory words and tossed the rest.  Ugh, it was horrible.

I guess I should rewind for a minute.  I don’t really know why I hadn’t tried before that unpleasant first experience.  I liked tomatoes, I liked tomato sauce and I liked ketchup.  True, maybe some (my mom) would say I was a tad fussy about certain things.  On Taco nights I wouldn’t eat the shell, salsa or cheese and the meat could not be too spicy.  I was served bland ground beef and shredded lettuce in a bowl for years.  I loved taco night!  Anyway, maybe my eating habits caused my mom to not bother with the hassle of figuring out what about tomato soup needed to change in order for her youngest child to eat some.

Lets fast forward to my first attempt.  I just started college.  I was living on my own in a new city.  You know how it is, everyone gets a little crazy in college. That’s how I ended picking up a can of tomato soup during my grocery shopping .  “I’m an adult now, I’m sure I’ll like it”.  Oh man, how foolish youth can be?  Well I headed back to the dorms, heated it up in the community kitchen and as I stated before, gagged, used some colorful language and wasted my precious money on a vile soup.  “Never again” I said!  Well maybe I didn’t say that but I’m sure I shook my fists in the air vowing revenge.  No? oh, well then I probably just went to the dining hall and stocked up on cereals that I could take back to my room.
