Yesterday my friend and her Hubbie came over for lunch and I made Chunky Tomato Soup. Tastewise this is the closest I’ve got to the taste of Heinz Tomato Soup. Rather than smooth consistancy of the Heinz version it does have chunks of tomato in it (which I like). Once my friends got home they brought us a Breville Stick blender off our wedding list, so I wonder if they are giving me a subtle hint!
