~TV dinner? What's that? JK! I actually haven't had a tv dinner in 10 years. And I'm pretty sure it was one of my mom's Lean Cuisines. They were pretty tasty then. Those South Beach Diet ones look pretty yummy.~

It wasn't listed but I have to go with Marie Calendars...they are expensive but you do get a lot in them that they fill you up.

I haven't had any of the others and haven't had my old fav in years, lol. Now that I know how to cook I just cook. I do have a fond hankering now and then for a good ole Banquet Fried Chicken tv dinner with the wierd potates but not the nasty corn. :toothy:

We never eat T.V. dinners my family eats so much it would cost me a fortune.
As it is with both dd's boyfriends it leaves me with 3 men to feed and 6 people at my dinner table.

I haven't bought one in forever.

I used to buy them for quick lunches for myself... mostly I bought the Budget Gourmet ones because they were so cheap. Some of the Weight Watchers ones (I think called Smart Ones now) were pretty good.

I haven't bought any in a very long time but they are good to stock up on when you can find a good sale for them. Lately here they have been on sale for 10/$10 for Banquet brand dinners reg $2.75 + ea.

I like the seeds of change meals. They are all organic and expensive but they are good. I do buy the Lean Cusines for my lunches. I keep them in the freezer at work. If I forget my lunch or am lazy I have only spent $2.00 instead of $8 or $9 going out to lunch.

I buy them quite a bit. I buy whatever is on sale. My guys take them to work for lunch. It is a lot cheaper than eating out. Sometimes they take leftovers when we have them.

When I was a kid, we used to have tv dinners about once a week. Usually grocery shopping day.

My favorite was swanson's salisbury steak, with fries, blueberry muffin and peas/carrots. I always put the gravy on the fries. It was so yummy. They don't make that one anymore. I'd still get it, if they made it.

Our favorite is Amy's Kitchen. We rarely if ever buy them though, too expensive.
