Lunch Update

By the way, the soup and scones are amazing! It was really easy to make both recipes and they are really good. I didn't pay much attention to the amounts for the soup. I just cut up a couple onions and carrots and added a few cloves of garlic and cooked them in olive oil in one of my big le creuset pots until they were soft and cooked through. I added a little salt, pepper and dried basil. Then I added 2 big cans of peeled plum tomatoes and some chicken stock. I pureed it all with an immersion/hand held blender right in the pot and finished it off by adding a little more broth, a little cream and some more dried basil and a pinch of garlic salt. It is so good. For the scones I followed the recipe and they were so easy. I may have added more cheese than called for, but I am glad, because I can actually taste a cheese flavor in the finished product. The point is...you should make this soup- it is really good- and the scones are pretty awesome too- I like to dip them in the soup....
