TRIED & TRUE: It’s fun making these Tomato Soup Brownies

My husband, Gene, and I went to Oklahoma for Thanksgiving.

I found this recipe with Mom’s cookbooks.

She has a lot of cookbooks. I guess like mother, like daughter.

This brownie recipe comes from Tucson, Ariz., RSVP Book (RSVP stands for Retired Senior Volunteers Program).

Celeste Dickerson contributed it. I have made tomato soup cakes (chocolate and spice) before. It was fun making tomato soup brownies.

Hope you enjoy these. They are good.
