Fresh Tomato Soup

Here is one of our favorites, and it is so much better then the canned stuff.  Best part is that it really doesn't take much effort.  We like it best with grilled cheese sandwiches.

6 medium tomatoes, peeled and quartered or 2-14 oz cans tomatoes
3 cups water 
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped celery
6 oz can tomato paste
4 Tbs snipped fresh parsley or 2 tsp dried
4 tsp instant chicken bullion granules
4 tsp lemon juice
2 tsp sugar

1. If desired, seed fresh tomatoes.  In a large saucepan, combine all ingredients.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat, cover, and simmer about 20 minutes.  Cool slightly.
2. In a blender, blend half of the mixture until smooth.  Repeat with the rest.

Makes about 8 cups
