When I woke up this morning,
the first thought in my head was,
Which is really strange
because usually my first thought is
"I gotta pee!"
Then I think about tomato bisque.
I love this warm, comforting, creamy soup.
My hips do not.
Sometimes I don't care what my hips think
and I throw caution to the wind
and just spoon mouthful after mouthful
of this yummy goodness down my gullet.
So this morning I awoke with a desire to find
a much more hip pleasing recipe for my favorite soup.
I used this recipe from SkinnyTaste and tweaked it just a bit.
I used 5 large Virtuoso tomatoes
and 1 1/2 cups of canned crushed tomatoes.
The only fat in this recipe is the one Tablespoon of butter
that I used to saute the vegetables.
I used fat free chicken broth
and fat free sour cream.
Here's what it looks like before I mixed it up
and added the sour cream.
(note the pepper spilled all over the stove)
Now, enter stage left,
the star of the show.
Do you have one of these?
Let me tell you,
I've been thinking about getting one
for the past couple of months.
Would it be worth it?
Would I actually use it?
And then Genn went and bought one
and showed it off all pretty
and I knew that in my desire to be all things Genn,
I had to have one too.
I had $20 in Kohls cash and this was on sale for $29.99.
I swooped in and grabbed the aqua one.
She is so pretty.
If you don't have one,
let me just answer the question for you,
You Need One!
And you need it today!
After adding the sour cream
I used my new immersion blender to make this.
It's creamy and luscious and it kinda made me tear up a little.
And it's only 1.5 points plus per cup
on Weight Watchers.
Which means that I can eat 18 cups of this soup
a day and still stay within my points.
What? Too Much?
I found that the best way to eat this
is with one of these.
Mini spinach flatbread pizzas
from Trader Joe's.
I love you Trader Joe's!
I also grabbed this while I was there.
A pot of herbs.
This one has oregano, thyme and rosemary.
So excited to get some basil and get these
planted in a pot on my patio.
Have you had enough yet?
One more thing.
New couches are finally being delivered tomorrow.
We've been looking for new couches for over a year.
I wanted pretty and reasonably priced,
Brian wanted comfy.
We got kinda pretty and really comfy.
We DID NOT get reasonably priced.
We finally bit the bullet
and went with La-Z-Boy.
Because you just really can't beat their
comfort and their warranty.
They had a President's Sale going on but
we still paid more that we wanted to.
My daughter, Katie, is coming over for lunch tomorrow.
This, I look forward to more than anything else.
Love you Puddums!
