Tomato Basil and Beef Soup


It appears I’m on a soup rampage these days, I think it has something to do with -30c temperatures but it is hard to compete with the warming awesomeness of soup. And besides they are super easy to make. Enter the google machine where I always start every soup rampage, and voila a Tomato Basil and Beef soup recipe from http://onceamonthmeals.com
