Snowed in, and needed something to warm us up. Tomato anything is kind of risky around here, because only one of us is particular fond of them. Same with the gorgonzola. Afraid by trying to make this appeal to everyone, I might end up with no on liking it. Decided to go all in and double it just in case. This is an example of the whole being much better than the parts individually. The creaminess of the cream cheese balances out the zing of the tomato. The bite of the goronzola balances out the twang of the cream cheese. The tomato balances out the bite of the gorgonzola. Nothing dominates. Just great compliments. I also worried that it was an awful lot of basil, but it was just right. The one thing I have to question about the recipe is, why equal parts cream and milk? Isn't that what half & half is? That's what I used, and it worked great. This is a perfect soup to warm your soul, and to dunk grilled cheese sandwiches in. Don't let any individual ingredient scare you off.
