Lunch Time: Soup and Sandwich!!

Prior to my transplant in 2010 I woke up every morning starving and ready to eat breakfast. Since then I don't know if it is due to all the medications I now take or what but I just can not eat a big breakfast. If Danny and I go for breakfast with his parents on the weekend sometimes the most I can handle is a bowl of grits and maybe a bagel but not much more.

Thats why I am pretty big into lunch and of course dinner! My usual standby is some sort of soup and sandwich combo with a little variety every once in awhile. I love making homemade soup but I haven't done that in awhile (I have actually been looking recently for a good ham/bean soup) so its the canned version I have been eating lately. 

The sandwich that I made for myself the other day is a sandwich actually made for me YEARS ago by my Aunt (my dads sister.) I think she just made it up....remember a few days ago me telling you how good my grandma was at cooking something out of nothing? Well my Aunt got that same awesome gift! Me.again.not so much....

2 slices bread
Cream cheese
Deli meat (ham, turkey, etc.)
1-2 Slices American cheese
2 Slices tomato
Salt and Pepper


  1. Toast Slices of bread.
  2. Take a few slices of deli meat and top with the slices of cheese and heat in the microwave for about 30 sec. or just till the cheese is melty.
  3. On the toasted bread, spread the cream cheese on one slice and the mayo on the other slice.
  4. Place the meat/cheese on the slice with the mayo, then top that with the slices of tomato, salt and pepper to taste and then top that with the bread slice that has the cream cheese on it.
  5. Slice in half and enjoy! 

I know it might sound a little strange but I love it and its something out of the norm of just a regular grilled cheese sandwich (which believe me I eat a lot of!)


And just because I think its cute, my owl soup bowl I got from my Mom for Xmas! 

Well, I am off to make dinner. Look at me with TWO blog post in one day....YAY!! :)
