Tomato-Basil Soup

Been so busy lately with events coming up and ones this week.  I'm looking forward to the hum of the dryer and the dishwasher next Monday when I'm home, not frazzled, in my element.  So for now I still have 'apple picking' on my camera and I don't see it coming off until possibly Sunday, ugh!  But just to keep at this blog a teeny tiny bit I've got...


Tomato Basil Soup
(and yes it's photographed in the same way as the Creamy Butternut Squash soup from last weeks post... sorry... I told you my mind is scattered and busy this week)

1 large onion, chopped
1/2 cup butter
6 ripe tomatoes, chopped
2/3 cup sherry
8 fresh basil leaves
1 cup Cheddar cheese, grated

Saute onion in butter until golden. Add tomatoes, sherry and basil, cover loosely and simmer 30 minutes. Mash large chunks of tomato with a pesto masher. (I use my handy dandy hand blender) Serve with croutons and top with cheese. (We added salt to ours)
