    This is one of my family"s favorite dinners. It's fast and allows me plenty of time to work on my quilting projects and yet looks like I spent alot of time in the kitchen preparing a meal.
    Every night I save the leftover vegetables from each meal. I collect them in a gallon size ziplock bag in the freezer. When the bag is full I pull it out and let it defrost on the counter while I brown one pound of ground beef. Peel and boil about six potatoes and then mash. Mix the meat with the soft vegetables and add a can of beef gravy. Pour into a 9"X12" casserole and spread the mashed potatoes on top. Bake for about 45 min or until bubbly in a 350* oven. Enjoy!

    sounds like shepards pie, which is very good.

    I would even sprinkle some grated cheddar cheese on top of the potatoes.

    I used to do the same kind of thing, put all the bits and pieces of leftovers in the freezer - veggies in one ziplok, meat in another. Saute an onion, add the frozen stuff and some potatoes and cover with v-8 juice, cook an hour or so, heavenly homemade soup. My son loved it, he would come home from school and go "Mmmmmm, refrigerator soup"!

    Good idea !!
    and using Instant mashed potatoes (make them a bit thicker) & topped with shredded cheese would make it even "dreamier" IMHO :)
