Potato, Broccoli and Cheese Soup
The main reason why I chose this recipe was that I had a few heads of broccoli that were looking a little ragged. I had bought them the week before because they were on sale and I will not ever throw out food if I can help it. This is a great recipe! I made minor adjustments, but only because of laziness. I may have put in a few extra potatoes (I couldn't leave just 4 little ones in the bag!) so it was pretty thick. Used others' suggestions to cook the broccoli in the soup (also adds more flavor). I did not find the need to peel the potatoes or the broccoli, mainly because I'm lazy and I like potato skins. Put the whole thing in the food processor to get a better consistency. This thickens it up as well to those who complained theirs was watery, because mine wasn't AT ALL. Thinned it out with some heavy cream and served it with the cheese on the side. My kids loved it and this re-heated well, thinking of making a bigger batch next time to freeze for bag lunches - without cream, of course.

Oriental Cold Noodle Salad
Wow. This recipe is amazing and makes for the most satisfying bag lunch. Actually took this with me on an airplane and it was by far the best airplane food I've ever had. I used ramen noodles instead of soba and honey instead of brown sugar. I went for the japanese version and added chicken for more dimension. Best recipe I've tried in the last year. Oh wait! One more thing! I also added edamame to this which really sent it over the top.

Gyoza
This recipe was easy to make but very bland. I quite enjoyed wrapping these, it was a lot of fun. Next time I will try another recipe for the filling, though. We watched the gyoza "Cooking with Dog" tutorial on youtube and mastered frying the gyoza on the second test try. This recipe needs at the very least salt and pepper. I wish I had realized this before making all of these! More than half of them are in the freezer!
