Boxed, frozen meals

Here's a challenge for everyone: have you found any really good, packaged frozen meals? Sometimes even a foodie needs something super convenient. I just tried the Kashi lemongrass chicken and was surprised at how good it was. Perhaps there have been improvements in frozen dinners since I last attempted them.

        I have to agree. I usually keep one in the freezer. It's the perfect 11pm meal :)

          Good! I have some in the freezer right now, and have yet to try them!

        3. The mail-order site Home Bistro
          has many meals that I would rate
          as very good to excellent, among them
          salmon scallop tagine, tarragon
          chicken, jambalaya, baby back
          ribs, bacon-wrapped scallops,
          chicken with biscuits, short ribs,
          crab cakes and pub sausage.

            My experience with Home Bistro meals is that they are convenient, edible and reasonably nutritious.

            "Very good to excellent" didn't show up for me, but maybe I just had the wrong stuff.

          2. If you follow the microwave instructions, a frozen package of White Castle burgers tastes exactly like White Castle burgers.

            1. Do Eskimo Pies or Klondike Bars count as "meals"? What if you ate like 3 of them at one time? Meal?
