Personal Notes:
Jeff's comment: Bear with me here, I may forget something so use your head.
This is fairly bland so season to taste each time you warm a bowl up.
I keep it in the fridge at all times but it is okay to freeze it as well.

Jeff refused to eat this while going through chemo. He didn't want his memories destroyed by the change in his taste buds.
