Creamy Tomato Soup (Day 28)

I’ve signed up for a 31-day writing challenge. Every day in October, I post a new slow cooker recipe, a link to a previously posted slow cooker recipe, or a recipe from another blog.

On Friday, Wee One and I went to a bonfire. Since we were going to be eating yummy food there, I planned to have a light dinner, so we were NOT too full. So I chose to make tomato soup and grilled cheese. Yum!

The Wee One and I had fun at the bonfire. I made some Boo Mix to share. It was a big hit with everyone who tried it.

The adults sat with the adults and chit-chatted. The kids ran around caring for people and going on hay rides. I did go on one of the hay rides and screamed during the whole ride, even though it wasn’t really that scary.  

Now onto the recipe:
