Open up the foil pack to let the steam out.  Sprinkle with shredded cheese if you'd like and dig in!  When you're done, just throw away the foil.

Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda’s

We should have used fresh peas and carrots instead of canned (Duh!)
It could have used a bit more salt and pepper
We should have added the shredded cheese.

Overall, not a bad meal.  It was a nice change of pace from the usual grill flavor.  The foil packs make the food taste more like it was baked at home so it felt like a lighter meal.
