Fresh Cherry Tomato and Sweet Pepper Soup

fresh-cherry-tomato-and-sweet-pepper-soup-02

I have such a pile of tomatoes everyday from my garden I have a hard time keeping up with the harvest so enough was enough, time for some soup! While I was making this soup I was actually short a few so out to the garden I went to harvest another cup or so of my ruby little fellas. You can’t get any fresher than that! I also use the green and Cubanelle sweet peppers and basil from my garden.

I started cooking a little late as I am refinishing my bedroom furniture with chalk paint and lets face it, time flies when your focused on getting something done. I have one more day of sanding and waxing then the pieces can go back and I can get our bedroom back in order. Although refinishing with chalk paint isn’t a terrible job it isn’t quite as easy as I thought it would be but the results are lovely and it is an economical way to give your furniture a facelift. Thanks Lori from Pure – Petals, Paint & Simply Quaint of downtown Burlington. You were a great help!

    About the Author:

    Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
