Because I don't say it enough, your presence on this blog, whether active or lurking behind the scenes makes me so happy.

I ran into a girl a couple of weeks back at a party and introduced myself, I shook her hand and she immediately looked me and said, "Oh, I follow your blog!".

You see, this is how it often happens.  I have no idea who is reading unless they tell me, or send me an email or comment on one of my social media pages.  I know I have a good handful of faithful readers who never miss a post {you know who you are}, but I would have never have known that had they not told me in passing.

So when this gal told me this at that party, I was thrilled!  It makes my day when people tell me they are reading.  It keeps me going.  It gives me courage to tackle some recipes that otherwise in my normal life would have never attempted.

So, thank you!

I'm super duper, fantastically excited about the two months coming up.  The holidays are my thang. Make sure you stayed tuned in December 1-12 as I'll be giving away some of my favorite products and foods for 12 days straight.  I have a long list of companies who are on board because they believe in my blog just like you do.

And don't forget I always share plenty of holiday gift guide posts.  Did you see my last one featuring The Gifts I'd Purchase For My Kids This Christmas?  I hand picked ten of our family's favorites.  Join forces with me and start shopping NOW.

Remember, I've vowed to get all my shopping done by December 1st.  Think I can do it?

Enough already.  Let's talk SOUP.

You see, I made this Cheese Tortellini Tomato Soup one night for dinner in my Lodge Cast Iron Dutch Oven {I want one in every color for Christmas, by the way} and we ate the whole stinking pot in one sitting.

What is wrong with us?

Nothing I've determined.  We just like soup.  And when it's homemade and flipping delicious, I'll tell you what it goes down easy.

In case you are wondering kids LOVE this soup too.  Throw an ooey-gooey grilled cheese next to their bowl and you're golden.  Between the cheese filled tortellini and the rich, tangy tomatoes I'm thinking just about anyone would eat this.

Did I mention you can make this in 30 minutes?  Forget Sunday Supper, this can be made on a lame Wednesday night.

Cheese Tortellini Tomato Soup

28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
4 c. chicken stock
2 T. butter
1 onion, finely diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 T. dried basil
1 t. salt
1 t. pepper
8 oz. packaged cheese tortellini

1. In a heavy stock pot or dutch oven, I use this cast iron version, melt the butter over medium heat.
2. Add in the onion and cook until translucent. Add in the minced garlic and saute for another 30 seconds.
3. Pour in the broth, tomatoes and seasonings and bring to a boil. Once boiling, turn down the heat to medium-high and add in the tortellini pasta. Put the lid on and cook 10-12 minutes or until the pasta is tender.
4. Serve warm with grilled cheese sandwiches.

Of course I'm not going to leave you with just one delicious soup, how about 8 more!
