Sherried Tomato Soup

Merry Christmas Eve! We are having a blast in Texas with our family.
A few weeks ago, Meg and I took her daughter Sarah to see the Christmas Lights in Naples. We had a blast walking along the canals and seeing all the houses lite up. Next year we want to take a gondola ride down the canals with our hubbys!
She was so happy to see Rudolph.
This house was crazy!
Looking across the Canal.
Santa face or a Jack-o-lantern?
Sweet moments...
She wanted to tell Santa what she wanted for Christmas (a snow man).

Love these girls!

I made this soup a few weeks ago and fell in LOVE! It is so easy and yummy. I already made it for my family here in Odessa.

Sherried Tomato Soup

3 Tbsp butter
1/2 white onion
46 oz tomato juice
2 14oz cans diced tomatoes (I used Italian Stewed)
1 Tbsp chicken soup base
1 1/2 Tbsp sugar
salt and pepper
1 cup Sherry
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup half and half
1/4 cup chopped basil

Diced onion. Cook butter and onion in a Stock pot until onion is translucent. 
Add 2 cans of tomatoes,
Tomato Juice,
Chicken Soup Base and
Salt and Pepper. Heat until begins to boil.
Turn off heat and add Sherry to soup.
Stir in cream.

Coarsely Chop Basil.
Stir into the soup.
Serve soup. I love it because it is chunky.
