Easy, Yet Satisfying, Meal

Might I share an easy, yet oh so satisfying meal with you today? Of course, Fridays call for easy meals so we can enjoy more time reconnecting as a family. So, tonight I made the most simple of meals. 


Grilled Cheese Sandwiches & Tomato Basil Soup


Ingredients:

Sandwiches:
     Homemade white bread
     One slice swiss cheese
     Two slices cheddar cheese
     Spread butter

Soup:
     Canned tomato soup
     Basil
     Parsley

Directions:

Sandwiches:
     Just make a grilled cheese sandwich like you always do. Surely there isn't a lot of explanation required on this one. I think the mixture of cheese is the perfect combination. It makes a gooey and stringy sandwich...an A+ in my book! I recommend the homemade white bread because it cooks more evenly, and it is a little sturdier. We always have homemade loaves of bread in our house, so it is no big deal. If you don't make your own bread, a good loaf of store bought will do the trick. But please, please treat yourself to good bread. It makes the sandwich!! Believe me on this one!

Soup:
     Just combine the tomato soup and basil (fresh or not...mine was not this time, and it was just as good) and warm while your sandwiches are cooking. Then, garnish and then some with the fresh parsley. Personally, I love the way parsley adds a fresh flavor to your dish. You can put as much or as little as you like. And, of course, if you don't care for it, leave it out! Your choice.

ENJOY!!
