Recipe source:

The other day, BP brought home a bushel basket full of Roma tomatoes from his garden. That is a lot of Romas.

We decided to make tomato soup with them – so that I could eat it for lunch during the winter. BP doesn’t eat tomato soup, at all. But I think he really wanted to use our new food grinder attachment for the KitchenAid stand mixer, so it was a good excuse for him to test it out for the first time.

BP likes the new food grinder attachment

As you can see, he was thrilled with the results. Even I was impressed. Put your tomatoes in one end of this little gadget, and out from the other end comes a bowl of nice, smooth juiced tomatoes. The “guts” plop out from a little hole in the side. If we’d have had this when we made our spaghetti sauce, things would have gone much more quickly.

Anyways, I now have eight pints of tomato soup (plus more in freezer bags) waiting in the pantry!
