I won’t go so far as to say that grilled cheese and tomato soup, as a meal, can be improved upon, but if you feel like changing things up, try tomato soup with these cheddar-chive biscuits on the side.
Doesn’t look terribly appealing in the photo – again, indoor nighttime photography really is not flattering for food – but it’s quite tasty, I assure you.
Here’s a natural light photo of a vegetable quiche I made recently, with leeks, broccoli, and red bell pepper. Oftentimes I’ll cheat and buy a frozen crust, but this time the store was out, so I made my own. More work – for someone likes baking as much as I do, I have a strange aversion getting sticky dough all over my hands – but you can taste the difference.
Which is to say, my crust has more butter in it.
I also made those deviously good chocolate chip cookies from Good to the Grain again. And as everyone knows, if you give a mouse a cookie…
…he’s going to ask for a glass of milk. (Not that we have mice in the house. Just lots of allusions to children’s books. Actually, the infestation is getting rather out of hand.)
