After eating the last of my lunch today, I felt myself going into Cartman mode:

"Oh my god, you guys! Seriously!"

Seemed like an innocent soup and sandwich combo:

But as I started chomping, it became more and more evident how good everything was.

First off, I started with some Campbell's Select Harvest Light Vegetable Soup and added the remaining over-salted kale chips from last night. I almost threw them away this morning, but it takes a lot for me to throw out food, so I gave it a shot.

Between the extra salt on the kale and the salt already in the soup, there was definitely some sodium overload going on, but taste-wise, it was pretty darn good.

I packed more spinach than what would reasonably fit in my sandwich, so I added the extra amount to the soup as well:

I really loved this particular variety of Select Harvest. Great standard veggie soup, but with nice little amounts of beans and pasta. Perfect for pairing with delicious sandwiches like these:

A slice of Honey Whole Wheat from Great Harvest Bread Co., a slice of Sargento's reduced-fat provolone, smoked turkey slices, fresh spinach and a few strips of orange bell peppers.

It may not look or sound like much, but this was hands-down, one of the best sandwiches I've had. At first I was bummed that I didn't add any mayo or mustard to it, but then I took that first bite and it tasted fabulous. Just like the bagel sandwich from last week, the bread had this great sweetness that totally complemented the turkey and the bell peppers. But this was definitely better than the bagel sandwich because there was significantly less dough to get lost in.

So, yeah. I'm pretty sure I'm just gonna make awesome sandwiches for lunch the next few days. Mostly because of that bread. My god.

I'm mighty satisfied right now, but I do have a snack planned for later, just in case:

Definitely an "I LOVE FOOD!" kind of meal. And once my level of motivation corresponds with an adequate amount of free freezer space, I'd like to experiment with making my own soups. I know it's souper easy (nuk, nuk, nuk), it's just a matter of taking the time to think up some good combos, buying the ingredients and throwing it all in the pot.

There is a Campbell's Light Harvest Southwestern soup that I really love. When I'm being really sodium-decadent, I mix the can with a half cup of refried beans for a ver-r-r-ry thick and tasty meal.

Oooo... I think I bought that flavor too! It said "Southwestern" on the label and had chicken in it, I think? Or maybe it was just veggies... Anywho, mixing it with refried beans sounds awesome!
