Roasted Corn Soup with Tomato

Hi there!  I'm back home again from a little mini family vacation.  Over the weekend we took the kids to the beach for the first time.  We headed over to Huntington Beach in California (only 4 hours from here) for some fun in the sun/sand.  Unfortunately, though the kids seemed so excited when we first got there, they were tired of being covered in wet sand after about 2 hours.  Ah, toddlers.  So instead of trying the beach again, the next (and last) day of our trip we went to Disneyland instead!  We had a great time.  The kids enjoyed themselves and we enjoyed ourselves in the happiest place on Earth. :)

 Doesn't Alex look happy on his very first amusement park ride?  Don't worry, he got happier. ;)

 Aaron loved every minute.

Before we left for our trip, another momentous thing occurred.  It Las Vegas.  Woo hoo!  I took advantage of the rare occurrance and made a soup I had seen in the Williams-Sonoma flyer. Click here for the recipe.

I rarely make soup in the summer  (except for Gazpacho of course) but this one is full of great summer ingredients so it is perfect for a nice rainy summer day.  It may seem a bit labor intensive to you but believe me, roasting tomatoes is simple and easy, and you can buy roasted red peppers in a jar if you want to cheat.  I made up my veggies ahead of time (nap time) so I could throw the soup together 10 minutes before dinner.  Serve with bread or a yummy grilled cheese sandwich....enjoy!
