I show my love with food. If I love you, chances are I've cooked for you at some point. It's your birthday? Expect a cake. Going through a rough time? Cookies may show up on your doorstep. Celebrating happy news? Drinks and an over-the-top cheese plate it is. Just need a little extra love? Let's do pancakes. Food is my love language is what I'm saying.
I've been trying to think of the perfect care package and I think I've hit on the perfect combination. The tomato soup grilled cheese care package.
This Tomato Orange Soup was recommended in a Facebook Food Group I belong to and it's amazing. I double the recipe but keep the butter and salt at the single batch quantities and it's insanely delicious. It's also really easy to make (and it's even Grady-approved).
To make my tomato soup grilled cheese care package, I'd send the soup at the pre-cream stage with a carton of cream on the side (and a few quick notes on how to prepare). That way the soup can be thrown in the freezer if your care package recipient is overwhelmed with food. I'd include a loaf of nice bread, a block of butter, and some nice aged cheddar cheese. The beauty of this care package is it can easily be made into a complete meal or it can be broken down into staples if meals aren't required.
If you want to expand the package, why not send along some nice sausage or maybe some cut vegetables and fruit? Add a tray of brownies or a batch of chocolate chip cookies and you've got a nice, sweet finish.
The tomato soup grilled cheese care package is a lovely, easy way to show someone you're thinking of them and want them to feel loved and cared for. My favourite bread is sourdough just for reference ;)
