Today’s Menu: Grilled Ham and 3 Cheese w/ Tomato Soup

Healthy, Simple, and Delicious dinner tonight! It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood today and was outside most of the day. Wanted something that wouldn’t take a lot of effort and time so I went with a Grilled Ham and 3 Cheese and a bowl of Tomato Soup. For my sandwich I used Oscar Mayer Carver Board Ham and for the 3 Cheese I used a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Swiss, a slice of Sargento Reduced Fat Colby – Jack, and a wedge of Laughing Cow Light Blue Cheese. I topped it with some Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil. I layered everything  but the wedge of Blue Cheese which I crumbled. I served it on Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. I buttered the outside of each slice of bread with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and grilled the sandwich browning both sides. I Love all the different types of Grilled Cheese and the different ways and toppings you can do with them. Turned out delicious!

For the soup I used Amy’s  Organic Light in Sodium – Cream of Tomato Soup which has been my Tomato Soup of choice lately. Not only great tasting but it’s only 110 calories and 19 carbs! I left the Soup info and description at the end of the post. For dessert later a Jello Sugar free Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.
