Well, that sorta puts to rest the idea that you're living out your entire life in an underground bomb shelter.

Re: TV dinners

Bought me couple of kashi and Amy's today based on recommendations here. I'm curious to check them out and will have some tomorrow

Re: TV dinners

The only ones I buy are Healthy Choice and Lean Cuisine because the others are absolutely HORRENDOUS for you, like more than 100% RDA of Sodium and close to it in fat and sat fat.

YES!! This is excellent mac and cheese. Even the pasta is cooked correctly.

Re: TV dinners

I appreciate Amy's frozen dinners but their lasagna is a joke. It was tasty but half of the piece vaporized while nuking and the filling morphed into a thin spread. Bad idea to nuke lasagna to begin with, but it didn't feel right to bake it in the oven either because of the plastic tray. And whats with the small portion? Can you say 'sample' ?
Not recommended for people who love seconds and thirds. You'll need to buy four of Amy's frozen lasagna to equal one decent piece.

My wife loves those. I've even offered to make real mac & cheese, but she prefers the Stouffers. It's the only frozen dinner she'll eat. I haven't eaten a frozen dinner in many years.

Yep, the Stouffer's stuff is pretty good overall. My wife likes the french bread pizza, and we got one of their family-sized lasagnas for free around Thanksgiving (instead of a turkey, since we already had one). It wasn't bad at all and the nutrition stats were better than expected.

Re: TV dinners

Stouffer's french bread pizza is one of the few frozen foods I still buy. The supreme variant is a good quick meal when I don't feel like cooking anything.

No guesswork in what WE'RE having for dinner TONIGHT!
Oh wow does that bring back memories! I would have those all the time as a kid, especially the Salisbury steak ones. I also vaguely remember eating one and there being cartoon characters drawn/etched into the bottom of the tray.

Re: TV dinners

This was my go-to meal back when I was poor. It's pretty good!

Re: TV dinners

I tried Boston Market's meatloaf with mashed potatoes last night. It was only $3, but damn was it good! Not nearly enough of a serving to fill an adult up, but not bad for a quick bite.
