I love how this combination instantly warms you up, especially when you're at home for a quick bite to eat and it doesn't make sense to turn the heat up during that short time.
Have you ever tried adding a little pesto to your grilled cheese sandwich? I received a recipe suggestion from Campbell's for pesto grilled cheese and was intrigued. It looks really strange when spreading pesto on cheese, but the final result is fantastic.
I live very close to work, so it's fairly common for co-workers to join me at home for lunch. This week Jake joined me and he opted for a standard grilled cheese and also enjoyed sun-ripened yellow tomato soup.
He insisted on eating his soup with a spoon, whereas I prefer to drink tomato soup from a mug. I served his in a mug, just in case he changed his mind :)
Cheese singles are perfect for making grilled cheese, but I rarely buy them because the cheese often tastes like plastic. Organic Valley just recently introduced American Singles made with real cheese, and the difference is very noticeable.
In case you're curious about the nutrition facts or ingredient list, here's a photo of the back of the package. With the crazy low-calorie bread that Chris (mister carb-phobic) buys, one grilled cheese sandwich is only 140 calories sans pesto.
I really liked the flavor of Campbell's new sun-ripened yellow tomato soup, but if I was blindfolded, I don't think I'd be able to discern the difference between their regular tomato soup and this new soup.
I found it interesting to see some of the Campbell's soup facts in the graphic below, such as 17% of all grilled cheese sandwiches are served with tomato soup. Soup and sandwiches really are a great lunch option. It's quick, satisfying and can be fairly low in calories.
Whether you like your soup in a mug or a bowl, the new sun-ripened tomato soup is definitely worth trying. By the way, I just got my glass mugs from Kohl's and I'm loving them for hot beverages as well as soup!
