Convenience Foods

For the past several years, I have gotten away from most convenience foods.  Sure, I still love Velveeta Shells and Cheese and I always have a packet or two of Ramen noodles for the times I just don't feel like doing anything, but I do try to steer clear from such foods. 

This past weekend, B and I went to our Farmer's Market.  We snacked on doughnuts and pizza and just spent the time walking around.  We stopped in a store we love and I found a huge selection of soup mixes.  You know the kind where they have all the spices and ingredients premeasured and packaged for you.  I bought the Jambalaya soup mix.  All I had to do was add my own protein and water.  I made it last night and although it is tasty, the homemade version is so much better.  Either way, this mix made a ton for $4 and we'll be eating out of it for at least three lunches this week.
