Tomato Soup

Tomato Soup

Nothing hits the spot better than a hot bowl of soup on a cold day.  One of my favorite soups is Tomato.  There are many variations of this soup and several restaurants in town have wonderful versions of it.

Currently my favorite variation is the one served at Lippis.  Just the right amount of onion and basil make this a wonderful soup.  It is hard to just eat a cup, and I typically will upgrade to the bowl.  The only problem is, it is not available every day.

Second place has to go to 4B’s Restaurant.  This world famous soup is on the menu daily and can be paired with most any menu item.

Third place goes to Jakers.  This wonderful soup is hidden in the back and is not out on the Soup and Salad bar.  You have to ask for it. Make sure you do though, because it is definitely worth your while and they are happy to bring you a bowl.

Fourth place goes to the Kitchen.  Mike makes many great soups, but you must try the Tomato if you are heading to the Kitchen for lunch.  Available in two sizes, I always opt for the large.  Since Mike home makes all of his soups, they go through rotation, so check here to find out the soups of the day.

Foreclosure Solutions

The current U.S. housing market and national financial crisis has caused untold stress and heartache for many American families. Foreclosure is one of the most devastating financial challenges that a family can face and one that many times can be avoided. The options available to Great Falls-area residents for foreclosure are many. Following is a brief explanation of these solutions, including their benefits and drawbacks:

Reinstatement
A reinstatement is the simplest solution for a foreclosure, however it is often the most difficult. The homeowner simply requests the total amount owed to the mortgage company to date and pays it. This solution does not require the lender’s approval and will ‘reinstate’ a mortgage up to the day before the final foreclosure sale.

  • Benefit: Does not require the mortgage company or lender’s approval.
  • Drawback: Requires that a homeowner be able to pay all back payments, fines and fees.
