Spicy Tomato Soup

The other day I was trying to figure out what to eat for lunch. My son was chowing down on an egg scramble, but I wasn’t sure what I was feeling like. So I went to the pantry and came up with a can of tomatoes. We had some cream and chicken broth in the fridge that needed to be used up and voila…tomato soup.
