Forever, a classic and giveaway winner!

Could grilled cheese and soup ever get old?

Okay, maybe if you ate it for every single meal. But like a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs, macaroni and cheese, chili and chicken pot pie, to name a few, this classic combo will never get old in my book.

You guessed it, it was grilled cheese and chunky tomato soup for dinner!

I always have to crumbled some saltine crackers on top of my soup.  I love soggy saltines. May sound gross, but it is true.  Anybody with me?



I doctored up my grilled cheese sandwich with tomato, mushrooms, and basil.

Basil=WOW! I think I will always include basil moving forward, even if it is just plain grilled cheese.  It totally added a whole new dimension to the sammie, as Rachael Ray would say, something to make people go ‘hmmm’ ;).

By the way, I like my grilled cheese semi-burnt…





My very first giveaway winner!

First off, I would like to again thank Progresso and Coyne PR for giving me the opportunity to review their product.  Also, more importantly for you, providing me with a box of goodies to give away to one of my lucky readers! :mrgreen:

Have you ever won anything in a blog giveaway?  If so, what? I have yet to be successful winning a prize pack.  Hopefully someday!

I’m off to find some dessert and read some blogs.  Night y’all.  Tomorrow is hump day!

  1. I love Grilled cheese and that one looks great!

  2. Oh god you just ate one of my all-time favorite combos. I think we have the same tastes too because I LOVE soggy saltines and I need my grilled cheese very well done (same with toast too actually). I have recently discovered that adding honey mustard to a grilled cheese is awesome too. I am sure the basil addition made the flavor totally pop.

  3. Love the fancy grilled cheese / soup combo — sometimes it’s just what ya need to get through the week, agreed!
