Tomato Basil Soup

Last week I made some delicious soup using my blender. I used the last of my frozen tomatoes, I need to go get some more so I can make more of this soup! I took it to my mother-in-law’s house and everyone enjoyed it. My brother-in-law had some and liked it but he added some crazy spices to it. The original idea for this recipe came from this blendtec video.
