Tomato Basil Soup and Grilled Cheese - Sept 22, 2011

This is a difficult meal to photograph, but despite the lack of visual appeal above, it hit the spot. After a spell of unseasonably cool and cloudy fall weather here in Minneapolis, I was craving soup. Since, however, we're just barely into fall we still have lots of fresh tomatoes to use up. The ones for this soup happen to be from Nick's cousin, Kirsten, who seems to be a much more talented gardener than either of us. I used an old and trusted recipe from Dinner Club days (which closely approximates this one but for fresh tomatoes and basil) for the soup and whipped up some quick and dirty toasted cheese sandwiches to serve alongside.

I remember that soup! YUM. I think I'll pick up some tomatoes at the farmer's market this afternoon in preparation for the cold weather you are sending this way for the weekend.

We had this exact meal for dinner last night! Thanks for the inspiration!
