Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese Dippers: This classic combo is a delicious meal to pack in a lunch box for the kids!

What I love about today’s recipe is that the slow cooker does all the heavy lifting (cooking) while you go on about your day. Dinner can cook while I run the kids to swim practice, art class, or karate!
