We had been under the weather lately in our house and haven't been out to do much. While we battled the popular cold/flu/whatever the heck this beast is that is going around, I decided to try a spin on an old comfort food favorite.
In the interest of full disclosure, I cheated with the soup using a box of Trader Joe's Roasted Red Pepper Organic Soup, but added some garlic (great for when you are sick-better raw though), fresh herbs and seasonings.
Then we tackled the grilled cheeses. We cooked a piece of chicken on the stove with a bit of olive oil. Once that was cooked I cut it up into smaller pieces. I also chopped up some green pepper I had. We were out of bread but I had these great Portuguese 3-meal rolls I had picked up at Family Foods in Falmouth. I layered the rolls with some cheese, some BBQ sauce, the chicken and the pepper and put it on the stove to cook.
The result was a quick and simple meal that both the Tiny One and I devoured complete with dipping the sandwiches in our soups! I even went back, made another one and then made them again the next day.... (hey, no judgement I was sick, well even if I wasn't I probably would have made them again anyways-they were seriously that good!!)
