The start of many a meal, easy, and cheap! A combination of celery, onion, carrots, mirepoix adds flavor and provides a base for innumerable dishes. Seasoned with grill seasoning for chicken, I added chicken stock to create a soup. I added cooked lentils (in a rice cooker... very, very easy). Packaged in plastic containers, and put in the freezer for a quick grab and go lunch I can microwave at work.
