Grilled Cheese sandwiches with Tomato Soup is my ultimate comfort food. I have been trying to find a good recipe to turn my cravings away from that white and red labeled canned tomato soup from my childhood for a long time now. I have looked up a few recipes and today I made a tomato soup that almost hit the mark. It was good, it was simple and it was relatively quick. So we are almost there, perhaps if I had made it creamy with a bit of half and half and used chicken stock instead of water. So I'll probably embellish it in the future, but for now here is a delicious tomato soap to go with a grilled cheese.

I was so intent on my lunch I forgot to take a picture. Sorry, maybe next time.
