8 quarts of soup

Campbell's tomato soup made with milk was one of the simple foods I missed most when I was in the Air Force.  The chow hall would often have tomato soup, but I think it was made with water-not sure the details, but it wasn't good.  

Trader Joe's Tomato and Roasted Red Pepper Soup is the first tomato soup I've had that is better than what I grew up with.  The texture is right and the flavor is excellent--the peppers and spices make it a good bit more interesting without being excessive.   I don't get to Trader Joe's that often, so after trying this soup on our last trip,  I decided to stock up this time.

    I really enjoy your food posts and pictures!

  2. I am a HUGE fan of TJ's tomato and roasted red pepper soup! (and I hate exclamation points) I got it for the first time on my first trip to a Joe's in Atlanta this last February. Tastes great, it's organic and I got 3 or 4 servings for what was it? $1.79 I think. Great stuff. Terrific buy. We're getting two Joe's here in Kansas City this Summer, thankfully. Can hardly wait.

    And then there's the wines...

    This is an AWESOME soup! I add some drops of goat cheese and it makes a great lunch!
