Growing up with a “kitchen-challenged” mom, ice storms meant Campbell’s tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches…
…and it still does!
Nowadays I like to do a few things to bring my soup up to the next level:
2 cans Tomato Soup
1 “can” 1/2 & 1/2
1 can “fire roasted” Diced Tomatoes
1/2 cup extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded fine (or mozzarella pearls for a caprese thing)
1/4 cup fresh basil, chiffonade
Over medium heat, slowly whisk milk into he condensed soup. Stir in the tomatoes and basil.
Bring all to a simmer, stir in cheese, and stir until melted.
What’s your favorite “Icy Weather” dinner, and does it hold a special memory?
