comment How much prime rib should I plan per person?
@Jolenealaska thank for the tip. I am still interested in leftovers even if I don't make soup. :-)

comment How much prime rib should I plan per person?
Since we are intentionally over buying for leftovers what's the estimate amount per person? That way I can adjust for the next dinner party.

comment How can I mask the flavor of frozen vegetables in soup?
Using a factory sealed bag. Vegetables are taken directly from the freezer and put into the soup. None of the other foods kept in our freezer home wrapped or factory sealed take on any sort of flavor.

I think you are doing a better job of describing the perceived flavor issue than I did in my question! I like your suggestion of creating my own mixed vegetables.

Maybe it's just a perceived taste based on texture or appearance. We are buying name brand vegetables from the chain super market near our neighborhood.

What is it about gooey frosting which would warrant holding off?

@Mien just a Rubbermaid tupperware container. If there's a better a container to store it in let me know.

comment When a recipe calls for X cooked amount of something is that before or after it has been cooked?
@Mien I see where you are coming from, including that in your original comment would have been helpful. Alone the comment looks like I didn't read your question, but did you see this one. :)

comment When a recipe calls for X cooked amount of something is that before or after it has been cooked?
@Mien if you read my question you'll see that I referenced the question about nuts. I'm kind of an interloper here, so if you want to close the question by all means do so, but I felt like this provided a significant enough difference (cooked vs uncooked) to warrant the question.
