Aside from the rise of microwaves, that is.

In my bachelor days, those little frozen blobs of chicken a la king, salisbury steak, red sauce, etc. were my go-to hot meals.

Anybody else miss the days of boiling their food in a plastic bag, carefully extracting the bag from the scalding pot, frantically searching for scissors to cut open the bag, then dodging the fiery contents as they splashed onto the plate?

On second rhought, maybe we're better off without BBBs.

Or accidentally getting a small hole in it and watching all the gravy pour out into the boiling water

Oh, the humanity. Especially when you had just blown your last twenty-nine cents on it.
