tomato bisque.



If you're anything like me, there are some days when 5:00 rolls around and you haven't given the first thought to supper.  Those are the nights that we blow the budget and eat unhealthy meals.  Either that or a hodgepodge of leftover items in the fridge.  So, I've decided that I need to come up with a handful of meals that are easy to keep on hand, quick to assemble, healthy and cheap.  The first is a "recipe" (can you even call it that when you just dump things into a pot?) from Jordan's aunt.  She happened upon it at Trader Joe's when they were offering samples.

It's tomato bisque soup and it is simple and delicious!





All you need is:

  • Roasted Red Pepper Soup
  • Bruschetta
Just combine the two in a pot and heat it up!  Serve with grilled cheese sandwiches and you've got yourself a great meal (and leftovers!) in 5 minutes.






Both items can be stored in your pantry until opened so you can keep this on hand without worrying that it will go bad!  You can also buy low sodium soup which is what we plan to do in the future.  With the bruschetta added you won't notice the missing sodium and it will make it even healthier! 

Do you have any quick, healthy and affordable recipes?  If so, please share!
