Soup from the Freezer

Yesterday we had tuna melts and soup for dinner, a favorite weeknight quickie. For the soup, I pulled out a quart of turkey broth from the freezer and a bag of leftover roast vegetables. Heated the broth, added the vegetables, and seasoned with a bit of salt and pepper. That was it! Easy and delicious.

The tuna melts were simple. I mixed mayonnaise in with a couple of cans of tuna. I toasted the English muffins first, then spread the tuna across them, and topped that with a slice of Cheddar cheese. While I was doing this, the broiler was preheating. I popped the tray of tuna melts underneath the broiler until the cheese was melted and voila!

Now if I were making tuna melts for myself, I would have added some extra stuff. Maybe some sauteed celery. Or some capers. In the past I’ve used cottage cheese instead of mayonnaise as well.
