easy tomato soup

So, it’s been more than a week since I declared my double unders goal. Since then, I’ve worked on them twice, but still have a long way to go. On Tuesday, I managed to jump up instead of pulling my feet up under me, so progress, but no pike. I consistently strung together 5 or 6 in a row, then asked James to video me. When he did, I could only get 2 in a row. What can I say? I’m camera shy 🙂 I’ll spare you from the 5-second videos he took. But I’ll definitely post a video once I can get more than a couple in a row…on film.

This weekend, I’ll practice again…outside, of course, because it’s supposed to be beautiful here. Thank goodness, because I’m starting to get spring fever.

Last week, I came home late from the gym one night and scrounged around in our pantry looking for a quick meal. Obviously, I would have preferred to make this soup from scratch, but hey, at least it was a better choice than fast food. This soup wasn’t genius  but it was definitely quick, easy, comforting, tasty, warm and made for great leftovers.
