We just finished the bulk of our kitchen floors! It was a project that took the entire long weekend, but is well worth it. We love them! Now we just have to re-build the energy to do the living room and hallway. Then we’ll really be done!
I needed to make a dinner that would be quick and easy since I knew we’d be finishing in the evening. The stove has been in the hallway all weekend, so we haven’t had a real home cooked meal in days. By the time we’d get the stove back in the kitchen, there wouldn’t be time for a big meal. We decided grilled cheese and tomato soup would be quick and easy, as well as tasty.
Well, since I haven’t cooked in a few days, I was kind of in withdrawal. I hopped on allrecipes.com to see if I could find a recipe for a homemade tomato soup that was still quick and easy… and tasty. I found this one and I am so glad I did. It was delicious! The base is tomato juice, but the beef bouillon gives it a hint of a French onion-y flavor, along of course with all of the onions. A touch of brown sugar adds the perfect sweetness, and the dash of red wine that I added brought a nice flavor. Broiled with a piece of toasted French bread and some melted mozzarella and provolone, this was the perfect side dish for our grilled cheese sandwiches.
