cheese quesadilla ” width=”300″ height=”225″ />On these chilly evenings, I crave comfort foods like this fresh version of cream of tomato soup with grilled cheese quesadilla and jalapeño relish.
If you haven’t already picked all your tomatoes, these are the final days of the tomato harvest on the North Fork. Even if they are green, you can let them ripen on the window sill or make green tomato soup or salsa.
