Homemadeish Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese with a Kick

This week I attempted a Pinterest challenge with recipes. I am constantly pinning things but have not had time to make them. I prepped this week, so I wanted to change things up. I felt like we were eating the same thing over and over. So I will be sharing our menu this week on what worked! So far so good!

Sunday we started off with homemadeish tomato soup and grilled cheese with a kick. I took the base of a Pinterest recipe, and made it my own. It came our very well and was half the time of the original recipe.

Tomato Soup:

1 Large can of condensed tomato soup
3/4 cup of chicken broth
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil
Pince of salt
1/2-1 tsp of fresh ground black pepper (depending on preference)
1/4 cup of heavy cream

Cook the can of soup for a couple of minutes, add heavy cream and stir. Allow to cook on low for 2-3 minutes, continue stirring and be sure not to burn the soup. Add in garlic, pepper, olive oil, and salt. Cook on low and stir as needed.

Grilled Cheese:

French Bread
Horseradish Cheese
Sharp Cheddar

Cut the bread, butter the outside pieces of the bread that will be on the skillet. Place the cheeses in the middle and flip once the sides have turned golden brown. It should look something like this:

Total Time: 35 minutes
