“I couldn't think of anything I wanted on a cold winter day. I was all by myself so this comfort food was made for only 1 person. Feel free to pick the frozen veggies that you like. I like crunch so added some French's Fried Onions. It definately hit the spot (a very generous serving). I think I will try an expanded version for the family soon.”
