Mrs. Johnson's Tomato Soup

Professor Johnson is one of the things I'll miss about W&L Law. He has hosted a weekly student Bible study in his home for who-knows-how-long. And for just as long, his wife has provided amazing food for the students who come to that Wednesday night Bible study. One of my all-time favorites is her tomato soup. She graciously shared her recipe with a few of us, and since I have had scheduling conflicts for the last year and have been unable to enjoy her wonderful food, I thought her tomato soup with grilled cheese sounded like the perfect exam nourishment. In reality, it is much more nutritious than I expected considering how creamy and delicious it is!
