Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup: A Childhood Classic

We got home late from a movie and Alexis made herself a treat from childhood...and it was tasty.

A Classic Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Yum. Made in the old-school sandwich maker, this was easy and tasty. And you gotta love the scalloped design.

Quick Creamy Tomato Soup
This was quick to make and perfect for dipping a grilled cheese sandwich into.

-1 can diced tomatoes
-handful fresh basil, chopped
-salt and pepper to taste
-1/2 can chicken broth
-splash of cream

Simmer all ingredients except cream for about 20 minutes. Puree, then add the cream and serve. Serves two.

Alexis later reduced the tomato soup down to a tomato sauce that was great for making a pizza bagel, one of my childhood classics.
