Tomato Basil Soup

Best Tomato Basil Soup!

This is a fantastic recipe for tomato basil soup.  I have made many different tomato basil soup recipes over the years.  I just never have been able get the right combination until now.  After tweeting recipes this is a great combination of ingredients.  Also this recipe is gluten free, dairy free, soy free and it is so good.  For a heartier meal you can add meatballs to the soup.

We have monthly get togethers with local innkeepers.  The dinners rotate and each innkeeper hosts a dinner during the year.  This September we met at our bed and breakfast for dinner.  We served this tomato basil soup recipe.  Along with the soup we served homemade pimiento sandwiches and chicken salad croissants.  I am happy to say this recipe passed the innkeeper’s taste test!  When everyone asks for the recipe you know it is a hit!  Try this tomato basil soup recipe which will add vibrant fall colors to your table!

Brenham’s Downtown Home Sweet Farm Market

July 14th, 2013 by Susan Lopez

Home Sweet Farm Market is an organic local farmer’s market, located at 306 Baylor, in downtown Brenham, Texas.  It is family owned and worked.  The owner, Brad, encourages other local farmers and gardeners to sell product, at the market as well.  What a treasure we have in our sweet town.  There is a parking lot at the corner of Baylor and Commerce for your convenience.  Bring your shopping bags or a basket to carry your food home.

  I have talked with people who have driven in from Houston, just to shop at this market!  They recognize the importance of supporting the local farmers. All product is locally grown organic food.   Not like the food that has traveled miles and miles in a truck, then placed in storage before being stocked to sell, in the stores.  The Home Sweet farm Market is open every Wednesday and Sunday, in historic downtown Brenham, Texas.  Market hours are:

Wednesday 11am to 6pm

and on Sunday’s 11 am to 4 pm,

just in time for our guests, as they leave Brenham House to head home!

So much to choose from as the farmers are offering the best of the Brazos Valley.  There is a wide range of fresh veggies, watermelons, melons, to artisan cheeses, free range eggs, fresh award winning pickles, pickled wild grapes, green tomato ketchup, Serrano hot sauce, blackberry Worcestershire sauce, pickled green beans, and loquat chutney.  There are fresh cut flowers, Chappell Hill Lavender products, Independence Coffee, and local honey just to name some of the other items you will see.  Shop first and then plan your menus!  So different from planning menus and then buying the ingredients.  Of course you have to buy what is in season because that is the freshest and best tasting!

Seasonal events and farm tours are scheduled throughout the year celebrating local foods and our agricultural heritage from the Birth Place of Texas.  Make your plans to shop at the Home Sweet Farm Market any Wednesday or Sunday.  You will be surprised how much better the food is.
