k tell me how you come up with these recipes! they all sound sooo yummy! tonight we just felt like grilled cheese (a newlywed milne fave) but tonight we jazzed it up a bit.. we used sliced french bread and spread some cream cheese on the inside with cheddar cheese (kind of a thicker piece, since you're using thicker bread, and because i love cheese) and then cook it like regular grilled cheese! i wanted to try it with some prosciutto on the inside too, maybe next time. we ate them with some CREAMY tomato basil soup and it was delicious!!! AND easy :)

i can't wait to try the cake! mmmmmm.

i forgot about the soup! here's the recipe for that..

4 tomatoes - peeled, seeded and diced
4 cups tomato juice
14 leaves fresh basil (or one palmful of dry, fresh tastes better)
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup butter
salt and pepper to taste
Garlic powder to taste

(so i quarter the recipe and it is a perfect amount for us. i also blender the tomatoes before cooking it all together, mainly because i don't have an emulsion blender and i think its too messy to do it after cooking..)

Place tomatoes and juice in a medium-size pot over medium heat. Simmer for 30 minutes. Puree the tomato mixture along with the basil leaves, and return the puree to the pot.
Place the pot over medium heat, and stir in the heavy cream and butter. Season with salt and pepper. (i like a little garlic in mine) Heat, stirring until the butter is melted. Do not boil!
