Who doesn’t love a bowl of creamy tomato soup with a grilled cheese sandwich? I love to make soup on the weekends when the weather turns cool and we just feel like hunkering down on the couch with a blanket and a book. Quiet time is so precious anymore when everyone is so busy with their own lives. This soup is inspired by Chef Paul Prudhomme’s Cream of Tomato Soup. The recipe calls for fresh ripe garden tomatoes which I would have preferred but at this time of year I will just have to go with canned. As it turned out the soup was just about as good as it gets. The Chipotle Gouda cheese melted nicely and had a little kick. It was a good choice to go alongside this rich and creamy soup.
