Soup and bread Saturday

Ok it is just downright cold here so last night we had some homemade soup that was soooooooooo yummy!! My mom and I used to make a big ol pot of this and have it for a couple of days.
I start out with 2 quarts of my own stewed tomatos, can used canned if you dont have any. I like to add 1 tablespoon of dried parsley, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tablespoon sea salt, 1 tsp dried basil leaves. Now take 2 cans of campbells tom soup empty in lg stock pot, add 3 cans of milk, (use your soup cans to measure) 1 large onion chopped, 1 cup chopped parsley, and a pinch of pepper. Now add in 1 bag of your favorite wide noodles and i like to add a couple of tablespoons butter, now just simmer til noodles are ready and soup has thickened. I forgot to take a pic but i am sure will make this again for my lunches at work this winter.

Here is another recipe for yall!! I made this a few times this fall for market and it went over really well.
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup shortening
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs (beaten)
1 1/2cups grated cooking apples with juice
1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
*optional add 1/3 cup chopped walnuts*
Heat ove nto 350 cream butter, shortening, and sugar. Add beaten eggs and mix well. Add apples, cheese, and walnuts. Add sifted dry ingredients and mix lightly. Bake in greased loaf pans (this will make 3 mini loaves or 1 9 in loaf) bake for 30-35 min til golden brown. Serve warm with butter!! or with your tom soup!! YUMMY COMFORT FOOD HERE!!

That recipe sounds like a real keeper! I bet the butter you add in makes it very rich and satisfying!
