This is one of my all time favorite recipes. Certainly my favorite soup recipe. I used to buy this little 1 pint container of soup at Pasta & Co. for about $5 & realized that was crazy expensive (& I would buy this a lot!). So, I got finally broke down & purchased their cookbook Pasta & Co. By Request which had the recipe in it.

Guess what? The soup is insanely easy to make, pretty affordable (certainly more reasonable than $5 per pint!), & delicious. Everyone I have ever given the recipe to raves about it. It’s perfect cold weather food, so make a batch soon & enjoy!

Tomato Cheddar Soup

3 t butter
1/2 cup onion, roughly chopped
1 28 oz. can Paradiso brand pear tomatoes in juice, chopped into 1/4″ pieces, including all juices (I’ve used other brands of tomatoes, & they work fine)
1 1/4 cups chicken stock (I’ve also used vegetable stock & it’s fine)
1 1/4 cups water
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 teaspoon white pepper (come on….I use regular black pepper!)
7 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, grated (sharp is better, but a good quality medium cheddar works fine as well)
salt m& pepper to taste

In a 3 qt saucepan melt butter & saute onions until soft. Add tomatoes & their juices, chicken stock, & water. Bring to a simmer, then remove from heat. Let cool for 10 minutes.

Add 1/2 of the sour cream. Whisk until well blended, then add remaining sour cream. Stir in the pepper & cheese to blend. Salt & pepper to taste. Gently reheat & serve.

Makes 6 cups

¬†will preface this deal by saying I’ve never had good luck with SeeHere. I have no idea about the quality of the cards (although I’ve heard they are good), I just have found the interface so difficult, I’ve never ordered from them. Maybe it was my browser (IE)….but just be warned that you might get frustrated like I did.

However, if you have good luck with SeeHere, then snag this deal! Create some 4×8 photo cards, add 24 to your cart, then use code: 25cards at checkout. You’ll get the cards free & just pay $2.49 in shipping.

Thanks, For the Mommas!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Heather @ 5:58 pm

I’ve always felt somewhat bad that I never got a personalized stocking for my daughter for Christmas. We have numerous beautiful stockings that she’s used, & she’s never complained, but I felt bad. I was going to find a local embroidery shop to embroider her name on one of our existing stockings in the next week or so, but this deal made me change my mind.

The Company Store has beautiful appliqued stockings on sale for $10 (normally $20) with free embroidery. However, use code: 1DY20OFF at checkout to save an extra 10% & score free shipping!

I got one of the above stockings with my daughter’s name on it for just $8 shipped! I challenge you to find a better deal for a quality, personalized Christmas stocking.

Thanks, This Beautiful Frugal Life!
