heart-y grilled cheese

A combination of hot creamy tomato soup and heart-shaped grilled cheese is not only good for Valentine’s Day but anytime you want to have some whimsical fun.

When we moved from London to the US, my kids started to ask for this duo- having been introduced to it through lunches at their new school.  My first reaction was hesitant but now even I enjoy a good sip of soup and a crunchy, gooey bite of grilled cheese.

In the recipe, the estimate is two sandwiches each for 4 people.  Adjust according to the number of people and how many sandwiches you think will be eaten.  It also depends on the bread.  I use a thinly sliced bread which makes a smaller sandwich.

What an easy lunch or simple dinner!
