Creamy Tomato Soup

A few weeks ago I mentioned on Facebook that I was currently eating my very first grilled cheese/tomato soup combo.  There was shock and disbelief that I made it 35 and a half years before dipping my first grilled cheese into some Campbell’s tomato soup.

Of course I loved it.

For some reason I had been under the impression that I hated tomato soup. I’m not sure where I got this idea other than I don’t like raw tomatoes. But tomato soup doesn’t taste like taking a bite out of a raw tomato.

Anyway, since I thought it was tasty, I was determined to make my own tomato soup.  Not that anything is wrong with Campbell’s, but homemade is always better than something out of a can.

So I scoured Pinterest for a recipe and I stumbled upon something that I pinned long ago…something my friend Nichole posted on her blog.

This week I decided we needed an easy dinner on Halloween so I made tomato soup by adapting her recipe for Creamy Tomato Soup, and Cortney whipped up some grilled cheese sandwiches.
