making dreams come true

I’d been craving tomato soup and grilled cheese for weeks (maybe months), so I finally decided to just make it. Made my fave sandwich bread – honey oatmeal. Dug through the freezer for stuff to schmancy up store-bought canned tomatoes. And just made my craving.

Yes, it is the perfect cold weather comfort meal, but also grilled cheeses and bowls of soup were the safest bets at roadside diners and cafes back in my road-tripping 20s. Middle of Mississippi? St. Louis? New England? The dessert between California and Texas? Grilled cheese and tomato soup was the constant. A lifetime ago, in both years and tastes, the meal is a solid dose of nostalgia.
