Sandie, I have google as my search engine too, it seems to work better for me than the others... :LOL: Thanks for that story, I just went and read the whole thing! It really was interesting!
Deb, I know what you mean, the corn in those TV dinners is SO good! Can't say a whole lot for the mashed 'tators though, but I just mix the corn in with them, and it tastes just fine! :laughing:
I actually like TV dinners, but hubby wouldn't eat one if his life depended on it (his moma spoiled him... :LOL: )
TV dinners will always remind me of my dad!!!!!! Forever!!!!! After he retired, and mom was pretty much gone (she had strokes, and had something like alzheimers) dad, who never cooked a day in his life, fell in love with TV dinners!
My brothers and I were a bit concerned about this, because of the fat content, and it didn't seem very healthy to eat them every single day, but Dad said he just loved them!
I even started making "homemade Tv dinners " for him, I would save all our leftover homecooked meals, and put them on these plastic plates, that had seperate sections, and cover them in foil, and freeze them, then take them all to him at the end of the week...
But the very next week, when I went back, all his store bought TV dinners were gone, and mine were all still there!!! (and it's not because I'm a horrible cook... :LOL: )
I asked him why and he said that he actually really loved the TV dinners!!! (go figure, TV dinners over homemade)
He would go into an absolute tizzy when the TV dinners at the store were on sale, and have me drive him there, so he could stock up!!!
After he died, a year and 2 months ago, my brothers and I went to clean out his house, and opened his freezer, and I swear all that was in it was ice-cream and a huge stack (about 20) Tv dinners!!!
And don't get me wrong, I had dad over for supper as much as I could, and so did my one brother who lives in this state, but Dad was just addicted to those TV dinners!
Wow......sorry.....didn't mean to ramble on so much about this!!!!
