It gets dark now at like 4PM here in New Jersey. I honestly see about an hour of sunlight a day between my drive to work and my lunch break, if I’m lucky. November is rough.
It’s this time of year that I have to look elsewhere for a little sunshine in my life, metaphorically speaking. What can cheer me up almost as well as rays of sun warming my face? Big bowls of comfort food filling my belly.
Keeping this in mind, I decided on one particularly dreary day that I needed something soothing in my stomach. Not just anything. I needed the ultimate comfort food combo– I was going to throw all of my favorite foods of the season together to make Mac n’ Grilled Cheese Tomato Soup. Yes, Macaroni and cheese plus grilled cheese plus tomato soup. Just the thought of it makes my heart happy.
