The Perfect Tomato Soup - Handmade in the Heartland

The Perfect Tomato Soup


Last week we had a couple of those days where you just need a bowl of soup- you know the kind of day, it's drizzly, cold and all you want to do is put on your favorite pair of sweats, watch a good movie and have a bowl of tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwhich. As a kid i'm pretty sure we just had strait campbell's but my grandmother derived this amazing recipe and i've been making it for the last few years. Its perfect because its delicious and so easy. Also i bought some ready made asiago cheese foccacia bread at the grocery bakery, slapped some butter and meunster cheese on it and threw it in the oven for about 5 minutes to make a melty goodness. The perfect pair.
