Simple Spicing It Up!!
Today after my massage, I was STARVING. Even though it is warm outside, it's cloudy and dreary looking outside. Those are the days when I crave something warm and comforting. Grilled cheese and tomato soup are my answer. But I don't like to leave things just as they are, all plain and simple. So my grilled cheese was made in a tortilla on my Foreman Grill. So melty and yummy. I left it simple because nothing is better than yummy, melty cheese. But the soup (although I think Campbell's Tomato Soup is super yummy on it's own) got some doctoring. Sometimes I like things to be a little spicey. So I tossed a little oregano, garlic salt, cayenne pepper and a tiny touch of cinnamon into the pot with the soup. Don't ask me why the cinnamon (other than the obvious health benefits - cinnamon and cayenne are really good for digestion and lowering cholesterol), but it just works and gives an extra touch of flavour to the mix. Try it in your spaghetti sauce too.
