Let stand until grill is ready.Brush asparagus with remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Grill eggplant slices for 3 minutes per side. Grill asparagus until halfway cooked but still firm, 2 to 3 minutes per side (depending on thickness). Transfer each to a plate.Using a length of unwaxed dental floss, cut goat-cheese log into 16 slices. Arrange on work surface in a single layer, and sprinkle with thyme.Using the divided containers, place 1 eggplant slice on one side of each container. Place 2 goat-cheese rounds over each eggplant slice. Repeat, layering each with an eggplant slice, then 2 slices of cheese, ending with an eggplant slice. In a small bowl, combine ketchup with the water. Stir in oregano and rosemary. Spoon 2 tablespoons over each eggplant stack. Place 5 asparagus spears (cut into 2-inch pieces) in the other section of each container. Seal, and freeze. (The eggplant can be stored, frozen, for up to 1 month.)When ready to serve, slightly open one corner of container to vent. Microwave on high until hot, 4 to 5 minutes. Let stand in microwave for 1 minute before serving.
