The Lean Cuisine Marketplace stuff FTW. Just had the egg rolls with the Sesame Chicken/Noodles.

Lol, and his brother lived as long, maybe a bit longer, than he did, and was not even close to the fitness/diet fanatic Jack was. His brother even had a good quality of life during the time, playing golf right up to his death.

My favorite is the Sweet and Spicy Korean Beef. It’s made with prime beef, brown rice, zucchini and squash. It’s so good. I get them for lunch and they keep me satisfied until dinner time.

If you’re looking for meals for two, or family sized they may be called, my son likes Stouffer’s and Marie Callendar’s.
Yes - they also have a couple Indian dishes right now that are very good too! Reasonable in price and calories.

Rarely even think about frozen dinners. but if I had to choose one I think it would be Marie Callendar's.

Marie Callender’s does make the best pot pies. I like the turkey flavor. You should cook it in the oven, of course.

Trader Joe’s Kung Pao chicken kit is really good. I add extra peanuts.

Naturally my local market decided to stop carrying it. I offered to buy a case, they wouldn't even have to open the box but they apparently have little interest in doing business and keeping their customers happy.

Must be my lucky day, I was in that market today and though it wasn't marked as a close-out they had some at the lowest price I've seen (2/$7.00), I got a half dozen. If I can make some room in the freezer I'll go back tomorrow and clean them out.

I love that Kung Pao Chicken, either over rice or Soba noodles. Funny thing is when they first started carrying it the first bag I bought had 7 of the little red chiles in the veggie packet, the norm seems to be 2-3, it was pretty spicy.

all my frozen favs come from Trader Joes

- Family Style Meat Lasagna
- note it takes 16 minutes in the microwave or 70 minutes in the oven. I used to make it from scratch, but then I realized from start to finish including prep & cleanup, it takes me 3.5+ hours.
Palak Paneer - indian spinach and blocks of uncured cheese, with a bit of chili
Cheese Enchiladas in the green plastic bag
The Argentinian Red Shrimp is the best frozen shrimp I've found in my lifetime


I am also guilty of liking Marie Calendars turkey pot pies. Which is the _best frozen pizza_ is source of debate in my house.

I don’t do frozen pizza, except for lunch once in awhile. We really like the flavor of Home Run Inn Chicago Pizza..

Marie Callender's Beef Pot Roast is outstanding. Close your eyes and you're in Grandma's kitchen! Best quality and quantity frozen meal I've ever had.
