zoesmom, I've never eaten a rutabaga in my life. Wouldn't even begin to know what one looks like. SO that will be an adventure. Another friend has told me about kale chips. Will def try!
punmama, I am not a fan of the soups and sent all of mine back except for one box to have on sick days. I would think a microwave is the way to go, do you have one of those in the office? I would probably even try soaking the chicken noodle, as I do my macaronis, before nuking, because as I recall the soups just never seem to "gel" together enough for my liking. So I stick with the spicy and beefy macaronis for work lunches and they are perfect after sitting in hot water awhile first and then nuking. I do have a box of chili which I don't love either because it's so thin - so I could use some advice there too!
