It’s soup season, despite what El Niño might have to say about this crazy warm weather.

Even though it was nearly 70 degrees on Christmas in Ohio and we have gotten but a dusting of snow, my body is still craving the warmth of the season that can only be found in soup. This simple tomato soup is chunky and oh so filling. Seriously, once you take one bite, you won’t be able to stop eating. Add some grilled cheese to the mix, and you’ve got a match made in foodie heaven. Just wrap yourself in a nice warm blanket and enjoy!
