tomato soup & grilled cheese

This has been my go to lunch for a couple weeks now. Not every day... but almost.

It's so so good.
I know it's a staple and probably doesn't need any instructions, but here's how we do grilled cheese and tomato soup around here.

Tomato Soup
Melt 1 Tbsp butter in sauce pan on stove. Whisk in 1 Tb. flour. Slowly stir in 1 C. of milk. Heat through on medium-low. Add a regular sized (14.5 oz) can of tomato sauce. Season with basil and pepper & stir until heated through.

This makes 2 generous servings. I'll either have it 2 days in a row or share with a friend who's over for lunch. If we're having it for dinner, I'll sometimes double everything so I can use it for lunch the next day. It's so easy and delicious.

Grilled Cheese
For the grilled cheese, I like to use whole wheat sour dough bread. Ciabatta or a french loaf would be yummy too. I get it near the bakery and produce area of the grocery store rather than the bread aisle. I don't need fancy bread, but it is so much better :)
(Addie gets her grilled cheese on not-fancy store brand bread.) And if I'm feeling sassy, I'll throw some turkey on. Deeee-lish.

Anyone else have a tasty variety to share? Enjoy! :)
