This Week's Menu Winner: Tomato-Basil Soup (As well as this week's menu)

Fruit and Veg City was selling 5kg of tomatoes for R20 last week (that's less than US$.25/lb), so we've eaten tomatoes in the form of lentils, pasta sauce, and Tomato-basil soup. The surprising menu winner for the week was Tomato-Basil Soup. The soup is really quick, easy, and tasty:

1.5 cups of chicken or vegetable stock
Around 20 Tomatoes
Fresh basil, chopped
A couple of cloves of garlic.
Simmer for a few minutes.

Add some heavy cream, if you have it.
Blend for about 2 seconds

Monday Hake + Pepper + mashed potato
Tuesday Pasta with Tomatoes and green peppers
Wednesday Left over lentils + pan fried potatoes
Thursday Risotto with pine nuts + vegetable + garlic +SA Parmesan
Friday Steak and chips (Chicken wings were WAY too much work)
Saturday Left over risotto
Sunday Soup + sourdough bread
