One of the common things we eat around here is grilled cheese sandwiches with tomato soup. I used to eat it a lot growing up and it’s something we nearly always have everything on hand for at home…plus it always tastes great on a chilly day or one that is just otherwise yucky which I guess makes it one of our favorite comfort foods.
We’ve tried pretty much every brand of tomato soup on the market here in Germany and found one that we love, at the price of €2.50 a can. Quite steep, really, but it tastes better than all the others…even if it’s not quite enough soup for us to split with a couple grilled cheese sandwiches. We kept saying we were just going to make our own some day…and the day finally arrived on Saturday. I snagged this recipe from Oklahoma Prairie Mom – those of you homesteaders out there reading this, you might enjoy her blog. At the moment her family is transitioning to having a minimum of electricity at home. Not sure I could do it, but a great challenge to take on and I certainly admire them for it!
