Classic Soup, Salad, and Bread Combo
Around my house, I do most of the cooking, but it's a factor of available time and not skill. Sometimes, you need an inexpensive way to throw together a meal for your family. This is one of my favorites, and it is such a good meal that you really feel like you must have tried harder to make it than you actually did.
Soup and Bread:
2 cans Campbell's Chunky Soup (Choice of flavors, but I recommend the Chicken Corn Chowder)
1 loaf Italian bread from grocery bakery
a. Heat soup on stove over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally.
b. Slice bread and heat in oven at 175-200 degrees for about 10 minutes (about as long as the soup takes to heat.)
Chopped Romaine Lettuce
1 can Sliced Mandarin Oranges
Cherry or Grape Tomatoes
Seedless Red Grapes
Green Stuffed Olives
a. Throw ingredients in bowl.
b. Mix together.
Take note that, with the exception of the lettuce and the cucumber, everything on the salad can be tossed into the bowl without any other prep. This combo is filling, and the whole thing takes about 10 minutes. If you serve the salad first, the soup and bread should be ready at about the time you finish eating salad. Pretty healthy, super easy, and surprisingly delicious.
