Trying to get it together oh and Tomato Soup

So I was thinking of doing a little television fast (no tv for a month). I started having a few anxiety attacks at the thought of going cold turkey, so what I have agreed to (with myself)  - in an effort to increase productivity and not spiral into a deep depression is to only watch (or listen) if and while I am working on other projects. It is  no coincidence that I picked the shortest month of the year.

Hope you are having a very Happy February!! 

and that you will do something to remember Black History Month.

I got this quick and simple recipe from my boof (boo friend) JP. We exchange last minute recipes before dinner time often. Pair this with a Grilled Cheese Sandwich (Provolone, American, Grilled Onions) and you will be very happy.

4 cups crushed tomatoes
12 basil leaves
1 cup heavy cream or half and half
1 stick unsalted butter
Salt and pepper to taste

Simmer tomatoes and basil leaves for 30 minutes. Puree mixture. Add cream, butter, Salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with baby basil leaves.

Easy and yummy--not light, though. :)
