Creamy Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese “Croutons”

The perfect kind of comfort food together in one cozy bowl of soup!

I hope you all are recovering from Thanksgiving. I obviously ate way too much than I could actually handle and then had a second round of Thanksgiving leftovers on Friday where we had the most amazing turkey ham sandwiches with cranberry sauce and gravy-drenched boxed stuffing. Yeah, you heard right, boxed stuffing. We all devoured the chestnut-pancetta stuffing that was made for Thursday so we had to resort to Mrs. Cubbison’s classic dressing. And surprisingly enough, the boxed ones are actually pretty good!

I am so grateful to be spending Thanksgiving with such an amazing family and to be surrounded by such awesome food. Although it saddens me that there are still many Hurricane Sandy victims left homeless on this holiday. With $50 billion in damages, the deaths of over a 100 people and thousands left homeless or without power, today’s #SundaySupper is to lend a helping hand to those affected in the Northeast.

We were told to cook from our hearts and with that in mind, I couldn’t help but make a huge batch of creamy tomato soup. Tomato soup brings such comfort, especially when some grilled cheese “croutons” are thrown in there. It has that soothing effect and definitely serves as the ultimate feel-good meal!
