Nostalgia, It's What's for Lunch



Grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup. A classic. Admittedly, the soup was ready made, and just has to be heated and served, but it did the job. The sandwich - so simple. Spread Hellman's Mayonnaise on whatever bread you've got, add a slice of good cheddar, slap 'em together and heat on a buttered pan until they're golden and crispy. It's a winning combo, to be eaten with one hand only, dipping the sandwich into the soup, while reading the paper with other.

hmmmm!!! looks so good. i haven't had a good grilled cheese and tomato soup in a while. ;_;

however, today my american friend invited me over for 'coffee' and ended up cooking me a huge american styled breakfast with bacon, sunny-side up eggs, a pancake, pan-fried potatoes and mushrooms, and bread pudding. WOW!! :D

Lucky you Mina! Interesting with the bread pudding - That was never on the menu for brunches when I lived in the States! Still trying to find a good vegetarian alternative to bacon too, any tips?

onions fried in miso paste or thinly-sliced baked beets with marmite. not exactly a substitute, but good and crispy. xD

Jennie said...

The onions sound fabulous, and I love beets, though I've never been a fan of marmite! Will check up on similar recipes out there :)

I saw this article and it reminded me of your blog (not necessarily this post though). Btw, that toasted cheese and tomato soup is making me hungry--and I just ate lunch!

Thanks for the link Megan! Author of the article is Jennie too, I see, so all the more appropriate. Lately, I've been reading about more and more who go from years of vegetarianism to carnivorism. Drew Barrymore is one, Jeannette, from Everybody Likes Sandwiches is another. It's interesting how our reasoning can change with time. I like the flexitarian moniker, but I think it should be expounded a bit, as in ethical flexitarianism, for example. Because I just can't put meat into my mouth that I know has had a miserable life. It's gone so far, that I even think organic chicken is yucky, because of the mere association with miserable chicken. Ah well. Good use a good steak soon though. Or maybe just some iron pills...;)

But I haven't found good cheddar yet in Copenhagen.

I like the word "flexitarian" for this type of diet. I cannot stand it when people say "I'm a vegetarian... but I eat chicken (or fish, or worst off beef)." And then they have an attitude when you correct them.
