Sometimes a simple classic meal can be just the right way to end a weekend. On Sunday our family likes to kick back and relax before the start of a new week. I like to end our weekend with a meal theme that is Quick and Easy. A menu as simple as the Classic Tuna Melt, Fries and Creamy Tomato Soup is a perfect quick and easy meal.
Classic Tuna Melt with Creamy Tomato Soup
Classic Tuna Melt
2 cans albacore tuna in water, drained
1 Tablespoon green onion, chopped (yellow or white onion can be used as well, I add green onion for color)
2 Tablespoons mayonaise
4 slices of Cheddar cheese
8 slices bread of your choice
In a bowl, mix tuna, onion, 1 Tablespoon of mayonaise. On one slice of bread, place a slice of cheese. Top with tuna mixture. Place another piece of bread on top of tuna to make a sandwich. Contine with the remainder of bread and cheese. Lightly spread the remainder of mayonaise on both sides of sandwich. Grill in a skillet until lightly brown on both sides. Serve with soup, salad or fries.
Creamy Tomato Soup
2 cups chicken or vegetable stock/broth (I like to make my own stock ahead of time and freezer. When I need it, I pull it out of freezer.)
4 cups crushed tomato or Italian stewed tomatoes with seasoning
1 cup heavy cream or milk
Salt and freshly cracked pepper
Combine broth and tomatoes in a medium saucepan over moderate heat. When soup starts to bubble, stir in heavy cream or milk and reduce heat to low. Season with a little salt and pepper and simmer gently 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. With an immersion blender, puree soup. Serve bowls of soup with sandwiches, salad or fries.
As always, my quick and easy recipes for Busy Moms can be found on my website Noel’s Kitchen Tips.
