    I came across this idea at a friend's wedding and I'm going to serve it as the app at my birthday dinner, rounding out a morning of snowshoeing and an afternoon of revelry at the local.

    Good ol' grilled cheese and tomato soup! :feedme:

    I look forward to celebrating my date of birth with my friends, a.k.a. "The Others."
    (LOST fans may get that reference. :D )

    That is a fun and delicious looking appetizer. I would post one but haven't figured out how to do it yet.

    I can't find it, but there is really yummy recipe for tomato basil soup that uses canned plum tomatoes and dried basil, you will never open a can of Campbells again.

    Funny, but one of best renditions of tomato soup was in Junior High School, a huge bowl with grilled cheese, all for the princely sum of $.50. Milk and dessert included.

    Happy Birthday Richard, enjoy your day with the Others, I'm sure your repast will be better than what was served on that island.

    H'app'y Birthday, or Belated, Richard!

    I'm guessing that's Wisconsin cheese?

    Well played, Geogran! :thumbsup:

    And yes, that's some Wisconsin cheese. I enjoy it a lot more since I moved off the farm!

    Thanks, hammie! :D
    The Dharma Initiative ration drops we raided on The Island didn't always contain the tastiest things to eat!
    Somebody in Ann Arbor had a food dehydrator and a lot of spare time!

    Looking forward to some good eats with the Others here in Wisconsin! :feedme:

    Gouda use Gouda. I fix my Grandson grill cheese with Gouda. It is his favorite.

    Watch out. I hear that smoke monster can be a real jerk when he drinks too much. ;)

    Nice alternate version, NYNYGirl!

    I had the best 42nd birthday party I've ever had! :D
    (My first three tries (2014,2015,2016) didn't work out so well!)
    Lots of food :feedme:, drink :beer:, and good times :headbang:!

    I have a gift that I will post about later.
    It's related to a thread from a few months ago.
    Looks like I get to revive another thread!

    Enjoy the rest of the weekend, y'all! :cool:

    I know you're a fan of the show Lost, but if you received a loincloth for your birthday, may I remind you there is an "after dark" forum..... some things are best left for the imagination......just sayin!

    I did, but it was waaaaaay too small (the loincloth, that is). Thank goodness a gift receipt was included!
    Thanks for the reminder though, hammie! :D
    I will refrain from posting pics of my birthday suit!
