What? I cooked?

I'm trying out something new this week. I'm.... get ready for it..... COOKING for my family!

I'm not a good cook- or a good cleaner- or a good grocery shopper. Add that to being a photographer and what do you get? A husband that cheerily says, "Let's just get take out every night so you don't have to cook. Ever."

But this week we have no sessions. ZERO. So I have time to spend in the kitchen. My first recipe to tackle was inspired by the delicious tomato soup and grilled cheese at the Yard House. It made me die from tasty happiness. 

I made up the recipe for the grilled cheese sandwich, which wasn't hard- since it's bread and cheese. Here is the recipe for the soup. It was a tasty soup, but I like mine much creamier so I'll have to keep searching for a better recipe. Anybody out there have a yummy tomato soup recipe?

The kids gave the sandwich a huge stamp of approval. The soup, they wouldn't touch. You win some, you lose some!
