Grilled cheese + tomato soup = ultimate comfort food. This classic staple brings me back to Mom’s kitchen at the start of a new school year. Mom never let us “starve” as we claimed we always were. It was typical to throw our backpacks by the door, give Mom a hug, and politely beg for a snack. After all, thinking makes a growing brain hungry! If we were really lucky she’d bust out one of our favorites, grilled cheese (made on leftover french bread used from making french toast) and tomato soup. Sometimes we’d have it for a rainy fall saturday lunch. It’s just the best and so are the memories associated with it.
Well, passing the tradition on I took a go at creating a homemade tomato soup recipe and an updated rendition of the classic American sandwhich. Bubba had his “kabob” style. While the Mister said that was too dainty for his liking.
