I've found that any yummy low cal dinner (especially the kind with pasta) can be lovingly placed/poured on top of a pile of romaine lettuce, baby greens, spinach or angel hair cabbage to make it more filling and to get in your greens at the same time. Also eliminates the need to fret over salad dressing. None needed. I do this often and I think it's de-lish, hope I didn't gross anyone out....

I'm a big fan of Amy's products in general, but I will warn folks who might be expecting an actual shepard's pie that this is anything but. I spit mine out and rinsed it down the sink.

I haven't tried any frozen dinners for DD's though. I will have to chek into some for backup purposes.
I always wanted to raise goats. Don't know why it appeals to me. Have always lived in the city.

That is one of my favorite tricks, too.

Another favorite is to turn almost any cassarole into soup by adding water. More filling. Sometimes additional spices help but there is usually more that enough salt for the extra water.

I despise canned soups, but time has been way too tight lately. So, I have taken cans of low sodium soup, added whatever veggies seemed appropriate to the flavor, added water, added herbs, and sometimes an ounce of pre-cooked meat. Whole thing comes out about 300 calories and I have not yet managed to eat the whole thing on one day. Broth is amazingly filling.

If DD falls on a day that the kids have a lot of extra curricular activities I have occasionally done the Oncore Salsbury Steak frozen dinner or the larger can of Campbell's Vegetable beef. Both of these are right around 150 calories per serving. I add a green veggie to the frozen dinner and sometimes the kids will have a sandwich along with the soup. These are not my first choice meals but they will do if we are in a real time crunch.

I love soup and both of these ideas are great! Progresso has some great "light" soups that would work well with additional broth, veggies, etc. The "water to casserole" idea never occurred to me and I'll bet it's really good. Looking forward to cooler weather so soup will hit the spot. It feels nice to be sorta full on DD's.
