Creamy Tomato Soup

There is only one week left till spring, and while I’m so happy to be done with winter, I will miss the food ☹. That’s why I’m milking winter for all it’s got, and squeezing this soup in at the last minute. But really, I’m totally going to eat this soup all year round. I also really wanted to use my new immersion blender. Yay for not burring my hands by pouring hot soup in the blender!

Okay, so this soup is an effortless tomato soup with carrots, onion, canned tomato, and topped off with half & half to make it super creamy . This is a perfect “let me sit on the couch under a mound of blankets while I watch Parks and Rec” tomato soup. To get the most bang for your buck with this soup, I would put on your PJ and turn on Nextflix. Enjoy the last week of winter.
