Doesn’t that look delicious?

Over the years I’ve realized that tomato soup is a love or hate it sort of soup, but if you ask me, there’s nothing more delicious on a wintry afternoon, than a big mug of tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich! It’s definitely a childhood favorite, which is probably why it’s such a comforting food to me. Reminds me of Christmas vacation and watching the snow cover our yard.
