Ultimate Comfort Food

It's been chilly and gloomy in LA lately and that always leaves me wanting comfort food. For me, the ultimate comfort dish is grilled cheese with tomato soup. It's not refined, rarely expensive, and never disappoints. I apologize in advance for teasing you with this grilled cheese collection. If I could, I'd reach through the computer and hand you a melty grilled cheese sandwich.
