Believe it or not, I love sorting out the packages too. I make a game out of it by rubberbanding six meals and writing on the packages the day of the week and what meal it is for. I write it in highlight pen since that is easy to write with and except for the bars stays on the packaging. I bundle up M-F and take them to work with me. I now have this week's and next weeks worth of meals at my desk at work. Sounds kind of anal but I feel like a kid with all these goodies.
I try not to repeat a shake or meal for a few days too.
Also, a tip that has been said i know that but it is really a good one. Measuring out tap water and soaking the pasta for a half an hour and then nuking it all made the meal much better. I still have to try the blender and the tomato soup that zoesmom suggested.
