It has been a dreary week.
Cold and wet and windy and sunless, I've really hated the weather this week. It's amazing, though, how warm familiar food can make me warm inside and make me forget about the grayness outside.
And what's more familiar and comforting than a grilled cheese sandwich and bowl of tomato soup?
Really, when my husband got home tonight, he just grinned and thanked me for making his "favorite meal".
I countered, "I thought biscuits and gravy was your favorite meal?"
"It is, too."
Sigh. Next time we need a warm comfort food, I know what to make!
Well, tonight I made grilled cheese & tomato soup. I grew up with grilled cheese using 2 slices of Kraft Singles on each sandwich. Josh grew up with sliced Velveeta. I don't think Velveeta ever entered my home as a child, but since being married and trying it "his way", I'm sold. I mean, both Velveeta and Kraft sliced cheese make a good, melty, warm, cheesy comfort food for gray days, but the Velveeta wins out.
And, this just in! Kraft cheese (they make your typical sliced cheese as well as Velveeta) are now growth hormone free, so I can feel even better about using them in my sandwiches. Because, I mean, I've tried using sliced cheddar in my grilled cheese & it's just not the same. Homemade grilled cheese demands American cheese.
