Sourdough bread bowl filled with creamy tomato soup, and a grilled cheese sandwich on the side:
So this isn't exactly a 'recipe', but I still thought everyone would appreciate this quick meal idea. It's perfect for a night that you work late, or you'r just getting home from an out of town trip, or when you've been out doing errands all day, or when you find out at the last minute that your husband invited guests over when you didn't have anything planned yet ;) ... etc.
There's no cooking, really, and it is actually quite gourmet looking and tasting!
Stop at the market on your way home and buy just three things, then assemble at home and voile- a very 'gourmet' dinner in no time at all!
- Individual-sized round loaves of Sourdough bread, 1 per person (they have them at Trader Joe's, they are also at the bakery of your supermarket)
- Creamy Tomato soup, I LOVE the "Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato" soup that comes in a carton from Trader Joes (I've tried to home-make it, but it hasn't passed the taste test yet. Once I hit a version that's worthy I will share it with you... but for now- it still needs tweaking, so store-bought it is!)
- Muenster Cheese, (or your favorite variety for grilled cheese sandwiches)
- (If you don't have some salad makings at home, you can also grab a bag of spinach or a pre-made salad to serve on the side)
