I think it looks like it is worth 400 calories too. I will enjoy making it. It looks like a candidate for freezing in the baggies and storing in the freezer? Is that what you do?

             Thanks Karen. Yes, that is what I do with almost EVERYTHING that I cook. I did that to the leftover meat I cooked in that video. After my husband and I had our meal, I placed the remainder into individually bagged servings then into a larger freezer bag, and that food is in my freezer at this very moment waiting for future mealtime use sometime in the next few months.
