    Funny how recipes become “ethnic” if an ingredient is added…anything with pineapple becomes “Hawaiian”, anything with oregano becomes “Italian”, anything with taco seasoning becomes “Mexican”, anything with soy sauce becomes “Asian”, and anything slapped between two buns is American. LOL!

    LOVE your ideas! Did have a question, though! Can you prepare meals in advance and freeze them?
