As a child my Mom always bought chicken noodle instead of tomato soup. It wasn't until college that I had it with a grilled cheese sandwich and thought it was amazing. This week I tried something new. I wanted to make a tomato soup that was easy and affordable, plus I wasn't feeling well and didn't want to go to the store to get some. My local Food Maxx is having a sale on their 8oz tomato sauce cans for $0.24 each. I simply poured the sauce into a pot and added about 8oz of chicken stock. After bringing it to a to a boil it looks just like the store bought stuff! It's a little bit acidic so next time I'm going to add a pinch of sugar, but for about $0.30 I made a 16oz bowl of tomato soup to go with my ham and cheese sandwiches! I might even spruce it up with some pepper and oregano next time, but I love how easy and simple this is.
For my sandwiches I've been layering Swiss cheese and ham with a little bit of mustard and ranch dressing. When I get to work I heat it up in the microwave and wa laa! Melty ham and cheese sandwich! It's been my thing for a few days now and I love it.
