This is less of a recipe and more of the realistic food prep in a busy household! For the month of May, between travel and family and work commitments, I wanted to prepare a nice dinner/soup but found myself short on time.

SO! I offer here instead a salad with a wonderful, delicious and as-healthy-as-prepared-foods get, boxed soup. Pacific Organic Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato is one of my favorites; I always keep one in my cupboard, for the more rushed evenings or lunchtimes when I yearn for something warm and cozy.

I especially like this soup with a grilled cheese sandwich. I make my grilled cheese with aged cheddar on wheat free bread and let’s face it: with enough butter on the pan and a little patience, you really cannot ruin a grilled cheese sandwich!

I also like this soup company; they are clear and direct about what they put in their products and have really worked hard on taste satisfaction. Click here to browse all their soups.
