The hot weather is here early this year because we haven’t got anything else going on so why not make it stupefyingly hot in May? When summer comes I tend to switch my eating habits to bagged salad, sandwiches and take out. Let’s be honest, my winter menu is pretty similar but I make a lot of soup as well. Cheesiest Broccoli Soup might be my last soup until October. Read more
Tomato soup might be the perfect food. It tastes good with grilled cheese, you can put hot sauce in it and you can drink it out of a mug when you run out of clean spoons and bowls (which happens around here more than I would like to admit). Read more
Spring is here and soup season is slowly slipping away. But not so fast, summer!

That being said, all I want to eat is soup. And ice cream. It’s weird. And no, I am not pregnant. Read more
Alright, I have to confess something here. Once a week (at least) Six and I eat tomato soup with toasted cheese sandwiches for dinner. However, the soup and sandwiches we consume are not this absolutely beautiful easy tomato soup and delightful grilled cheese croutons.
Nope. The tomato soup comes from Trader Joes and the sandwiches are two pieces of bread and two pieces of cheese that are put into something called a toaster bag (brilliant invention that lets you melt cheese onto bread in your toaster without setting fire to your toaster). We usually eat baby carrots and apple slices as side dishes. And that was my weekly grilled cheese and tomato soup meal. It took ten minutes from start to table and it was edible. Read more
