1 can of Cream of Tomato Soup (Campbell's is nice)
1 can full of milk or water--I prefer skim or soy milk
Butter or margarine
Toast--generally about four pieces
Set some bread to toast while you make the soup; that'll save you time. Pour the tomato soup can into a pot and add the same amount of milk to it. Stir it over medium heat until it's nice and hot. In the meantime, make toast, and butter it when it comes out, and cut it into cute little squares. They float when you pop them in the soup, hence the name "boats." When it's all done, get totally stuffed on it.
Here's Fred after eating this dish and surviving . . . happily!
