    Oh this sounds so wonderful!  I was just getting ready to run to the store for a few meals!  I am going to have to try this one this weekend!  
  9. Your right this is easy, and healthy also. When I do make it I usually flatten out the meat, roll it with the ham and cheese, fry it and finally bake it. It's good but time consuming.
