    I'm feeling like a nice salad w/ all my faves:

    herb lettuce mix
    red onions
    hard boiled egg
    grape tomatoes
    mushrooms
    grilled chicken or turkey
    ranch dressing
    seasonings
    maybe black olives

    And frozen yogurt for dessert!

    I can't take much credit for it--we bought the blackberry-ginger balsamic vinegar at one of those fancy olive oil stores on our honeymoon. :)

    9 meals ready to go, in the freezer!

    Mongolian Beef
    Tuscan Chicken
    Ranch Pork Chops with Potatoes
    Potato Soup
    Honey Dijon Pork Roast
    Teriyaki Chicken
    Beef Stroganoff
    Italian Beef Sandwiches
    Mango Pork

    The prep takes the most time. My daughter helped me, and we had everything prepped and ready to assemble in about an hour and a half, MAYBE a half hour to put everything in bags.
