Happy Soup Wednesday! When J. and I went to Georgia last March we ate at this awesome restaurant in Augusta called the Boll Weevil Cafe. The fried green tomatoes were delicious and we shared this heavenly slice of lemon cake for dessert. Because we had an appetizer and dessert I had a bowl of their tomato apple soup for lunch -- it was so great the perfect amount of creamy and sweet. I tried to recreate the recipe from the Boll Weevil Cafe from this All Recipes Tomato Apple Soup recipe...it was good, but not quite as good as the original that I was trying to recreate. I'll keep searching for that perfect recreation, in the meantime enjoy this hearty soup which is perfect for all of the cold blustery weather that February has brought us.
