There are times when soups are planned, while other soups arise spontaneously. One evening I dressed the sandwiches with onions and an organic salad made of greens and herbs, I noticed that my herb salad was almost at its expiration date. I just didnít feel like a salad. A hot soup would be just right with my sandwich. Rummaging through the pantry, I found a can of chicken noodle soup. The greens and some other leftover vegetables combined with the canned soup and became a fresh-tasting light summer soup.
Soup is an excellent way to express your creativity in the kitchen while saving money. Do you have foods that you throw away because there isnít enough of that food to make a meal? You can use it in a soup to pair with your sandwich!

I do enjoy my sandwiches! So many times, I grab a quick sandwich with some veggies and a juice. At lunch, if Iím lucky, I have a chance to chomp on my apple, too. However, for dinner, I think that my sandwiches deserve a nice soup, salad, or side dish, so that they can be a real meal. Do you have foods that you enjoy eating with your sandwiches?
