What's For Dinner? Weeks 40, 41 and 42: Grilled Mozzarella Sandwiches, Mushrooms & Cream Chicken, Tomato Basil Parmesan Soup

Grilled Mozzarella Sandwiches

I made these on Saturday night, somewhat last minute.  They were a simple yet "upgraded" version of a traditional grilled cheese sandwich, and the marinara dip was a perfect extra!

Go here for the recipe for the sandwiches.

Mushrooms and Cream Chicken

This was sooooo good (if you like mushrooms).  I don't have a dutch oven, so I had to do a lot of transferring from pan to baking dish, but it worked out fine.  Also, I used white cooking wine as opposed to what she suggested (mostly because I am alcohol-illiterate and I didn't even know what alcohol she was talking about!)

Tomato Basil Parmesan Soup

This was really good!  And, it is a crock pot recipe (bonus) that requires little prep, though there is some very minimal work needed at the end.  I actually pureed the soup, although the directions didn't say to do that.  I am not a big fan of chunky tomatoes, so after the soup cooked for 6-ish hours in the crock pot, I stuck it all in the blender, pureed, and then put it back in the crock pot to continue cooking.

The soup recipe can be found here.
