Homemade Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese and Avocado Sandwiches

Our co-op basket had a lot of tomatoes in it, so Dutchie requested that dinner
be something made with them.  Tomato soup sounded like a plan, so off to the net I went.
I looked at a few recipes and got a basic idea, then I added some of my own ingredients.

I took tomatoes, onion, chicken stock, cloves, garlic, basil and s/p.
I boiled them all together for about 20 minutes.
Then I pulled out my brand new food mill and milled everything together.
Made a simple rue and added the sauce back to it slowly to not
cause the rue to clump up.

I took some artisan bread, cheese and avocado and grilled them up
in the trusty cast iron.  The avocado added such a creamy element to 
the crispy griddle cheese (as my good buddy J Scott used to call them).
A Clausen pickle added to the plate, and by goodness...
we have a successfully fed flock!!!
