Soup on a cold and rainy day is the best!

This Light and Classic Tomato Soup is not only delicious but tomato soup and a grilled cheese is one of my all-time favorite meals. It’s a combination of simple but nostalgic. I don’t know what it is about it but it makes me feel like I am a kid again on a cold night.  Something about tomato soup and a grilled cheese just makes me happy and at peace.

To add to the happiness, the tomato soup and grilled cheese at Nordstrom’s café, now as an adult combines two of my favorite things. One being shopping and the perfect meal. Dare I say this tomato soup recipe is the lighter version or just as good, if not better than Nordstrom Cafe? I’ll let you all be the judge of that!

Grilled Cheese Recipe:

  1. Bring your pan to a medium heat.
  2. Add a light layer of mayo to each side of your bread and put that side down on the pan. (This makes the bread buttery and crunchy.
  3. Add your favorite cheese to both sides of the bread.
  4. After they are halfway melted, combine them together.
  5. Cook on each side for a minute or until golden brown.

So simple and so yummy. Cut it in half and dip OR cut them into crouton size and add them to your soup.
