When you send your husband to the grocery......

This is what happens when you send your husband to the grocery store on his own!

When he gets home and shows you the contraband he has collected (also including Cheez-its and some fruit snacks), you scold him for the bad decisions and then secretly you're thrilled and can't wait to share a bowl with him later.

This ice cream did not disappoint!  Yum yum!

The fate of the lean pocket

With the exception of ice cream, I'm not a big fan of prepared frozen foods.  Therefore sometimes I even surprise myself with random purchases of easy, convenient, surely-it's-not-going-to-taste-too-bad foods.  This morning I preferred to spend time watering the grass in our yard instead of thinking about the fact that I would become hungry during my work day.  The thought didn't cross my mind until I was headed out the door, so I ran to the freezer to grab something on my way out.  That's when I discovered my handiest last-minute choice was the box of lean pockets buried at the back of the freezer.  There's a reason they had found a place in the back of the freezer.  Nevertheless, I grabbed them and off I went.  Honestly, I dreaded eating them all morning because I never really like these cardboard delicacies.  But beggars can't be choosers, now can we?!  And besides, I'm generally not hard to please.

I microwaved one (they come 2 per box) up and ate some of it.  It was just as bad as I remembered.  But I can't stand the thought of wasting food (after all, I do work for an organization that has a food pantry for people in need).  Therefore, I left a little half-box treasure in our work freezer for a lucky recipient........

And this is why I'm already looking forward to dinner tonight.  And this is also why I need to make a grocery run (avoiding the convenient frozen section, of course).

Do you like prepared frozen foods?  Is there anything worth trying that is actually good?
