I enjoyed a min-vacation over the weekend with Jim and Ava. It was great to be "un-plugged" for two days (blog posts were written ahead of time and scheduled to post while I was away...gotta love modern technology!).
This morning is very cold and snowy and windy again. I am still in my "un-plugged" mode and plan to spend the day sewing. Meanwhile, Noel has agreed to be a guest blogger. From her website, Apron Free Cooking, I chose her post about winning a recipe contest because tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches sounds like the perfect lunch for today. :)
Congratulations, Noel, on winning and sharing the recipe.

Wow! Are these good tomatoes!
A while back, Isabelle At Home had a contest in which she asked “If you are the winner of this Tuttorusso Tomatoes Gift Pack, what would you make?” or … words pretty close to that. You can see the real contest information by clicking here.
I replied that I would add a can of evaporated milk to make Tomato Soup and serve it with grilled quesadillas. Well, Lucky Me! I was the winner!
When I got the gift pack in the mail, I was quite impressed … check it out!
That’s a lot of good stuff!
I’m finally getting around to posting the tomato soup recipe and pictures. Today’s a perfect soup day … the weather started out at 50 degrees and windy. The temperature has dropped significantly over the morning and now, mid-afternoon we have about 35 and windy.
