Here's a very inexpensive recipe for "Gifts in a Jar." This is also handy to have around the house for hungry kids who need a quick fix after sleding or skating!

I certainly watched DH with apprehension when I served this to him for a trial run. I was looking for things that he can prepare for himself with a minimal amount of effort, be nutritious and shelf stable. We are normally not fans of 'instant mashed potatoes'...in fact, I only keep the stuff in the house for bread making, but I figured when Di suggested it, why not?! We were very pleasantly surprised. All of the flavors tend to over-come the 'instant' taste of the instant potatoes...yippee. DH wanted me to send enough for at least three servings (pre-measured for him) for this 5-day stretch out. None of my family has ever cared for seasoning salt (the brand name product anyway), so I substituted Soul Seasoning for that. Otherwise, I followed directions exactly as stated. Thank you for another winner in my house Di!!! Do you happen to have any more 'instant soups'? ;-)
