1. Yummy! I make lots of soups but never tomato soup for some reason – pinning for the cold weather days ahead 😉
    Probably the first meal I ever made was Betty Crocker pancakes – I had that recipe memorized from my mom’s 1970 cook book 🙂

    • Pancakes your first! (I by frozen pancakes because I still can’t make them right.) You must share your tips for dummies. Hope you enjoy the tomato soup and the tartines are a good way to use that yummy Cabot cheese!

  2. I absolutely low how you added carrots to your version of this soup. I ate so many grilled cheese sandwiches w/ tomato soup growing up and loved every bite. I have lots of great food memories from growing up, so I’d have to say that my mom’s baked ziti tops the list as does my nana’s lemon sponge cake.

    • Thanks, Liz. The carrot and onion both help to make the soup less acidic. Your food memories sound delicious; it’s nice you have both sweet and savory memories.

  3. What a great story, Diane. I recall my first foods made by myself were actually hamburgers… I remember mixing the meat with seasonings and Worcestershire… then pan frying them. That’s not really my type of “meal” anymore, but I love the memory 🙂

    • It’s fun to see how our culinary skills have evolved with our nutrition education. Maybe that’s where we are most influential.

    • Yes, Marisa. Toaster ovens are perfect for this. I actually did mine ina Breville oven. Couldn’t live without it!

    • Thank you, Gretchen. Love me some Cabot Seriously Sharp Cheddar. I think this soup would also be good with your cheddar pull apart bread.

  4. Cream of tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich was one of the first “fancy” meals I ever tried to make. I had a recipe from Gourmet for roasted tomato and cream soup and was making a smoked gouda grilled cheese to pair with it. It was all going great until the blender exploded scalding hot soup all over me and my pretty sandwiches! Your take looks awesome!

    • Oh no! You only have to blend hot liquids and have them explode once because the aftermath is memorable. (Yes, I have done that) That combination sounds wonderful. You should try it again!
