The Tomato Soup Recipe that Won His Heart

My Tomato Soup Recipe Confession

I’m going to let you in on a little secret… I cheated… I used my tomato soup recipe to snag my husband!

Back when I was dating Sir CB and knew he was a keeper, I pulled out the big guns to win his heart. We all know the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach and he was no exception. So I pulled my tomato soup recipe out of my arsenal.

I invited him over for a light dinner on a cold winter’s night. The tomato soup was simmering on the stove while I grilled the smoked cheddar cheese sandwiches. Soft music playing in the background as I was preparing the trap dinner. When every thing was ready I served it up. Lock & load!

When that first spoonful hit his mouth the look of rapture on his face let me know I had scored! I think he would have proposed to me right then and there if his mouth hadn’t been full. He’ll claim it was my personality that won his heart but I know otherwise !
