Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup: A Love Story

When I was young, my mother would tell me stories about the early years with my dad before I came along (I'm the oldest). One of those stories was about my father's rather novice cooking skills. My mother worked at a pizza restaurant in town (she was a student at the time) and would walk home from the restaurant. My dad would have dinner waiting for her when she arrived. Sweet, right? There was just one problem. My dad only knew how to make grilled cheese sandwiches and canned tomato soup. So, each night, my mother would walk home to a dinner, lovingly arranged on the table, of grilled cheese and tomato soup. :p

Tonight's dinner is an ode to my parents' beginnings (made by Hubby). And now I'm dying of thirst! Darn soup! :D

Hope you're having a great Tuesday night...
