The Kid loves to dip grilled cheese sandwiches into tomato soup and then, last year, Dianne made tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches cut up like croutons and served right in the soup. I made it one night and he had three bowls of soup with the equivalent of two big sandwiches and I knew a star was born.
These little yellow cherry tomatoes were on sale at the supermarket this morning and they would also give me an opportunity to use the canned yellow tomatoes from PC's Black Label line that I have been eyeing forever. It was a nice change from our usual tomato soup and I love the colour. It's all warm and sunny and cheerful and the harvati grilled cheese provides a really mellow flavour. I almost used a sharp cheddar but the taste of the yellow tomatoes seemed to be a bit more delicate than a red tomato. Of course, that could be all in my mind because the yellow tomatoes certainly look milder and softer. Regardless, I decided on harvati with a dense german bread and it was perfect.
