soup and toast

Happy Tuesday! It feels like monday today because I had a 4 day weekend. 🙂 I was in Edmonton for my cousins wedding! I tend to fall off track when I am not at home and there are not as many healthy choices….I defiantly ate too much gluten. 🙁 So I am getting my diet back on track with this delicious and filling soup. I usually don’t crave soup that much in the warmer months but I had all the ingredients on hand so I decided to whip up a pot. This soup is great because it has lots of flavour. I get my fire roasted tomatoes from Trader Joe’s and they add a nice smokey layer to the soup!
