Sandwiches on the Go
Make ahead and freeze. Use sliced bread, tortilla wraps, rolls, or buns for variety. Toss into lunchbags in the morning to thaw until lunchtime or thaw in the refrigerator overnight to enjoy the next day.

4 oz cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons whipped salad dressing
2 tablespoons green onions, minced
1-2 teaspoons tarragon, dried or 2 tablespoons fresh
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Place all ingredients in food processor. Pulse on and off until well mixed. Spread on well-buttered bread or buns for sandwiches. Makes 1 1/4 cups or 4 sandwiches.
To Freeze: Wrap in freezer bags. Label and date. Freeze for up to 6 weeks.
