canned or homemade tomato soup
1/2 cup Sour cream
1 tablespoon milk
plastic sandwich bag
|Start with canned
or homemade tomato soup. Place soup into bowls and make a
mixture the sour cream, milk and enough green food coloring to
turn the mix a pale green. Pour the mixture into a plastic
sandwich or freezer bag. Cut a very small piece out of one of
the corners of the bag, and starting from the side of the bowl,
swirl the sour-cream mixture inward to the center of the bowl,
creating a spiral. Using a toothpick and starting in the center
of the bowl, move straight to the edge of the bowl and repeat
several times to create a spider-web design.
