Since we have packed up nearly everything for the move later in the week we are down to sandwhiches and frozen meals, otherwise known as TV dinners. There has been a lot of what I call foo-foo food showing up in the freezer section of the grocery store, Lean this, Healthy that and Smart the other. Roasted chicken pasta with poblano cream sauce?

Remember good old TV dinners? The ones in the foil tray that you couldn't microwave...because there wasn't a microwave? :ezbill:

My choice for the week? Hungry Man One Pounders. Salisbury Steak. Pork Ribs. Meatloaf. Out of these, and I have no odea why, my all-time favorite is the Salisbury Steak. What's yours?

I forgot to mention why it is called Salisbury Steak -

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salisbury_steak

Salisbury steak is a dish made from a blend of minced beef and other ingredients, which is shaped to resemble a steak, and usually is served in brown sauce. Hamburger steak is a similar product, but differs in ingredients. Salisbury steak was invented by an American physician, Dr. J. H. Salisbury (1823–1905), and the term "Salisbury steak" was in use in the USA from 1897. It is popular in the United States, where it is traditionally served with gravy and mashed potatoes or noodles.

The Zatarian's frozen meals are money. The blackened chicken alfredo rocks yer face.

The Swanson's lasagna has always satisfied - though I'm not sure if that counts as a "tv dinner".

All the ones that come in that steamer type double bowl with the noodles on top are pretty good.

Edit: Also, anything by Marie Callendar's is usually pretty awesome.

This is probably the best microwavable meal I've ever eaten. Got one here today for lunch and about 10 more in the freezer at home. They are great.

this ^^

I remember the green peas in TV dinners as being outstanding. Science fiction green with a great snap to them.

Probably GMO, but recommended anyway.

:9: It's one of the few frozen foods I'll eat. Good stuff.

Also, IIRC, Zat made the stuffed bell peppers that I liked, but I haven't seen it on a shelf in a long time. May be discontinued. :sad:

They only carried the Zatarain's stuff here for a short while...I will have to check and see if they can get them back.

The Michael Angelo's italian meals are pretty good. The make individual and family. The eggplant parmesan is actually very good, for frozen. :ezbill:

My wife and I usually have one about once a month.
