    Awesome soup... I'm glad Keni makes so many of your recipes, since they always turn out great. :) Very creamy, and I liked the spinach and dill... makes it just different enough from normal "boring" tomato soup. The spicy V8 does add just a tiny bite, too. I also made grilled ham and cheese sandwiches, which were perfect with this.

    Well, now we don't have to wonder. ;) This was SO good! I did start it like I usually start similar soup recipes by sauteing the onion and garlic then just adding the flour and making the roux, from that, adding the tomatoes(and all the ingredients you said to add, there), then simmered, and finished the recipe as directed. This didn't change anything with the taste, it just was easier for me, cus it's more familiar. :) I didn't do anything different with the ingredients other than using stock and tried the spicy V8, since it was such a small amount, really, and it was fantastic! :) Oh, and I chopped the spinach. I loved the dill in it, too... okay, now I'm done. Great recipe, an easy 5 from me. :)

    Have never tried it with the spicy and don't know how much it will alter the flavor but hey why not? I don't think it would make it bad or anything. If it is though, then you'll know it's your fault! LOL! I would thing stock would work the same. I'm so happy your making it FINALLY...j/k lol! Hope you enjoy!

    This one is comin' up this week, finally...I have a question, though...have you ever tried it with the spicy V8? And, if so, was as good? I LOVE the spicy V8 in soups, but I don't wanna use it if you think it'd alter the flavor too much...also, I'll use stock in place of the bouillon and water, okay? I've been eyein' this for a year, so it's about time to make it, already! :)
