My elderly mother has requested as Christmas gifts individual frozen portions of "home cooked" entrees. She loves soup, so that's easy, and I can think of things like lasagna, eggplant parm, etc. Any recommendations for dry, make-at-home soup kits or other things I could freeze in individual portions? I have a food saver, so I can vac pac individual frozen chunks of just about anything. I'd like to stay away from a lot of pasta and bread.
She is perfectly able and willing to do sides or a salad, so a complete meal is not necessary.
Oh, and I have to travel form Georgia to New York with this stuff in a cooler in the back of my car.
Thanks in advance!
