I ended up having it for lunch. OH so good. Had it with chicken salad sandwhiches though, which were also good but what it really needed was a nice big fat grilled cheese on italian bread to go with it... yeeeeah.

*mental note for cheese and more bread at the store for soup leftovers, which there are plenty of*

If anyone is interested, I make it with a 28 oz can of muir glen organic crushed tomatoes w/ basil (these ones are nice and chunky) and put in a couple of heaping tablespoons of sundried tomato spread, minced garlic, chicken stock to thin, light brown sugar to taste, salt/pepper to taste, and heavy whipping cream til its a nice orange color...

ugh, I need some grilled cheese *now*..
and perhaps I will repost this in a soup thread for all to enjoy? :)

still working on my homemade pizza recipe. better this time. still need to tweak it. i used tomato paste, added water, italian seasoning, bit of sugar, garlic salt, and crushed red pepper for sauce. cheese ad pepperoni. i precooked crust for ten min. so crust was not soggy
need more seasonings in sauce. otherwise just great.

awww, my, i wouldv'e taken yins to dinner tonite if i could have! EXCELLENT food!we went to a newer restaurant. salad bar, 6 or more kinds of soup, including clam chowder, wonton, beef dumpling, & seafood soups, squid, octopus, 2 kinds of clams, 2 kinds of crab, 2 kinds of mussels, stir-fries, rice, lo mein noodles, rice noodles, pizza!, veggie lasagna, sushi, sashimi, sauteed frog, chix ft., beef tenderloin, a hibachi grill with steaks & an assortment of other ingredients, sausage, a fruit bar, ice creams, smashed potatoes, i went thru several lates. puddings, sooooo many types of food, mainly Aisan foods, though, & i was quite impressed. was great, since although it was packed, the lines went right along. 'course i didn't get to consume too, too much of that stuff, though. frog was great, crab was delish. soup was too spicy, though thier chowder was yummy.
& only $20/person! great dinner. we're returning very soon.
