Roasted Tomato Soup

The children picked up something from daycare/preschool when they were there the other day (we get one day per week while a spouse is deployed) and have been passing it to each other in turn. Today Lavella was the one with the low-grade fever (they all have runny noses, and Elijah's still feeling the effects of yesterday's elevated temp.), and was whiny all day. She was so unmanageable by mid-morning that I had to put her down for an early nap. It only lasted about an hour, but it refreshed her (mostly) for the rest of the day.

When Andrew and Elijah were ready for their afternoon quiet time/nap time, Lavella was certainly not about to fall asleep again. I let her stay up and play with Andrew in the living room, and found them with this little set-up in a tent Greg pitched for them before he left (the tent migrates from the guest room to the living room with regularity):

Aunt Susie, I will share the bread recipe in an upcoming post -- I'm too tired at the moment to type much more, but for now, here's some very simple Roasted Tomato Soup we made the other day (recipe at 101 Cookbooks):

Quarter up a few vegetables and roast them in the oven for about an hour.

Throw it all in the blender until the texture suits you, then add hot broth and stir.

Eat with thickly buttered whole-wheat bread and...umm, meatloaf. If you're me. And craving ground beef.
