Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup

Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup, a Sweet As Pie Cooking Club selection, has so many things I love...tomatoes, basil, cheese and pasta!  

Last year, during tomato overload at my house, somewhere between the marinara
and the tomato jam , I made my own "sundried"  oven roasted/dried tomatoes.  Of those new things, the roasted tomatoes is the one I'd do again, given lots of fresh garden tomatoes.  Why I didn't share it here, I don't know.   Anyway, I used the last of those tomatoes in this soup.

If I make it again, I'll try substituting one can of the tomato soup with tomato sauce so it's more tomato-ie and not so creamy.

Why I didn't take a picture to share it here, I don't know!

Jo Jo Potatoes

I think it was back in the 80s that I first had Jo Jo potatoes.  They were at a local convenience store deli counter...actually more like a fried chicken counter than a deli.  I thought they were named after the owner "Joe".  Ha ha, I am so gullible like that!  Anyway, they were GOOD.

Since I liked them so much, I was excited to see them appear on the Sweet As Pie Cooking Club selections.    AND, thanks to the people at Cook's Country there is a simpler process to prepare
 Jo Jo potatoes than I had seen in the past.  Much lighter too, than the breading of the 80s.
