I used to buy the Stouffer stuffed peppers and lasagna, but most of the frozen entrees have way too much sodium for me. That includes a lot of Lean Cuisine entrees.

I'm a Schwan's fan.  Egg rolls and sweet & sour chicken are a great meal.  Even my son thinks so!

 

Also love pork (my own) fried rice with egg rolls!

Re: Are There Any Frozen Entrees You Enjoy In A Pinch?

I pretty much always have a few frozen meals on hand.  I don't eat them every day at all, but there are quite a few I really like.

 

There are a number of frozen meals in the Lean Cuisine line that I really like.  Also, some of the Healthy Choice are nice.  I like the Grilled Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo.

 

Lean Cuisine - I really like the 3 meat pizza with cauliflower crust.  I add a little cheese and some more pepperoni. 

 

Some of the bowls are nice.  I like the Life Cuisine Meat Lovers Cauliflower Pizza Bowl.

 

One Lean Cuisine I really like (with qualifiers!) is one of the 'bowls' called Glazed Chicken.   Here's the thing - I saw this and thought, oh this has to be good.  It's chicken, brown rice, green beans, and cashews.  Sounds awesome, as I really like all those things.   Well, it had pretty much no flavor so here's the qualifier - I knew I could 'fix' this because I like all the ingredients, so I got another one and that time what I did on the middle part where you take it out and stir it up was to add some soy sauce.  I just did a drizzle of (mine is low sodium) soy sauce all across the top, then back in the microwave I stirred it up again after it was done.  It was perfect and I have not stopped buying them.

 

Yesterday I had a Marie Callender's Country Fried Chicken and gravy meal that I really like.  It's a lot, but I was actually able to eat it all maybe because I hadn't eaten all day.  It's the chicken, mashers, corn, and gravy. 

 

I thought it had to be like 1,000 calories but it's only 390.

We eat the individual pizzas from COSTCO quite often. They are perfect size for one and make great starter pizzas when we do "build you own pizza" nights w/ kids/grandkids. They come in a 12 pack. We do add extra whole milk mozzerella and spouse adds more pepperoni when it's just us eating. I'm not a pizza snob, so I think they are tasty.

The other item I will buy from time to time are predone meatballs when I have the grandkids over. I just buy whatever beef meatballs they have at the store.

I just bought 4 Hungry Man dinners . They were $2.50 each. They remind me of when I was a kid.

Re: Are There Any Frozen Entrees You Enjoy In A Pinch?

We regularly have orange chicken from Sam's. It's delicious and still afordable. I like the one they have now much more than the other one they used to have. This one has no rice, just the chicken and the orange sauce. It's a better deal.
