"Soup is good food."

Does anyone remember where this slogan comes from?  I'm going to date myself a little bit here, because I certainly do.
 Yes, as a child of the '80s I remember hearing it repeatedly on TV.  Over and over and over again in the classic Campbell's Soup campaign.  Unfortunately, I'm even old enough to remember the Campbell Soup campaign prior  to "Soup is Good Food" ... that one was "M'm M'm Good!"

Do you remember?

Well, when it comes right down to it I have to agree with Cambell's that soup is indeed good food.  Especially when it's homemade.  A great bowl of homemade soup is so warm, comforting, and tasty ... the kind of food that just makes you feel good all over.

And when it comes to this homemade Tomato-Mushroom Soup?  I also have to agree with Campbell's earlier slogan that it's "M'm M'm Good."

This tomato-based soup is loaded with fresh mushrooms and full of rich and delicious flavor.  In addition to great flavor, the mushrooms bring wonderful heartiness to the soup ~ which is something my family craves in our soups.  Nothing thin and broth-y for my husband! ... Nope, he wants something he can sink his teeth into.

A little touch of Balsamic vinegar and a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese further amp up the flavor and round out the soup quite nicely.

Now to bring back even more of those tomato soup memories of childhood, I like to serve a big bowl of this with a warm and gooey grilled cheese alongside, just like Mom used to.  It's truly make-you-feel-good-all-over comfort food at its best. 

So whip up a batch and ladle yourself a big bowlful.  It's truly "M'm M'm" good food.
