Spicy Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese Croutons


It rained in LA yesterday, and on such a rare occasion, everyone gets on board.  Girls plan their entire outfit around Hunter boots, meteorologists pull out their STORM WATCH TWENTY THIRTEEN! voices, Barnes and Nobles sells umbrellas (for real), drivers slow down a good 15 mph and... I make soup.  Coincidentally, I had just come across this recipe for a tomato soup with... grilled cheese croutons???  I would eat dirt if you topped it with grilled cheese croutons.  And these did not disappoint.  I made a few changes to the recipe - omitting the red pepper flakes so my son would eat it (also I called it "red ninja soup" - yeah), using vegetable broth instead of water, adding some minced garlic with the onions, and swapping basil with thyme (which I threw in with the onions and garlic).  It was bright, and delicious, and did I already talk about the GRILLED CHEESE CROUTONS??  

Now it's a beautiful sunny day and I'm sad : (

Hahah you're so right-girls totally planned their outfits around Hunter boots. Rain in LA is a beautiful thing.

It's totally sunny again today, but at least it's still kind of cold!

Also, this soup sounds awesome. GRILLED CHEESE CROUTONS?! Have you ever seen the cookbook dirty candy? It's so awesome! I think they have grilled cheese croutons in there too.
