I don’t always eat tomato soup (except when I’m eating grilled cheese), but when I do, it’s 1 can tomato soup mixed with 1 can beef bouillion, and it must have oyster crackers floating on top.
I’m not too fussy about the bread for my grilled cheese, but if a more substantial bread is available (multi-grain, rye, etc.) I’d opt for that over plain old white bread. I don’t like my grilled cheese to be too soggy. Any kind of melty cheese will do. I like to spread both insides of the bread with sundried tomatoes in olive oil, and I spread the outsides of the bread with butter with olive oil.
Oops, almost forgot, I also have to have a mug of hot cocoa to go with my soup’n’sammich. And it’s even better if it has a dollop of Bailey’s in it.
