Default Crock Pot pre-made frozen meals


Went to a neighbor's for lunch today. She's 82 and I just love her. Her
cooking skills are lacking, Gawd love her. She put in one of those Banquet
crock pot meals you get out of the freezer section of the supermarket. I
don't know what time she put the bag of stuff in the crock pot. The
directions said cook on low 8-10 hours or high for 4-6 hours. We ate at
1pm. It was one of the most god awful lunches I've had in a long time. It
was this pseudo beef stroganoff stuff. The sauce had no taste except
sodium. The beef was unidentifiable. Smallish cubes of *something* that
tasted like cardboard. The salad was delicious. She makes her own
buttermilk dressing and I love it. She even had store bought cheesecake
for dessert which was good. At least I know to avoid those pre-made crock
pot meals.

So it was just like going to one of the industrial places such as
Applebees or Texas road house for lunch?

The Applebees that is here in my corner of the country is absolutely
fantastic. Each franchised location is different, obviously, because
they all depend on local owners or managers.

Seriously? They sell frozen things meant to be heated in a crockpot
for hours?! Really?

Let's think about this for a minute. Frozen dinners exist for
convenience. No one expects them to be good food. Freezing is a good
way to store food. But now you say that this product is meant to be
put in a crock pot and that it will take from 4 to 10 hours before it's
ready to eat. To me, it hardly matters that it was awful as food --
I'm still trying to get my brain to accept the concept of a convenience
item that demands long hours of your time......

[Still shaking head, trying to clear the confusion].... It's like
giving a soldier a rifle that shoots bullets which inject a virus into
the enemy soldier that will kill him in a week to nine days. The
work of some food/weapons designer who missed the entire point. -aem

But, but, but, don't they ship the same food from the same warehouses
to all Applebees all over the country?

It really shouldn't vary all that much, should it?

Sure it was Banquet? You just described the Stouffers Beef
Strokingoff. Usually Stouffers has some pretty good stuff, but
those "Skillet Creations" really ****. My opinion of Stouffers
dropped 20% after seeing that crap. Big chjnks of pressed
cardboard cubes and no taste. Shitloads of peas and carrots,
which have no place in stroganoff.

Right. I tried one. It was about as mediocre as you might expect.

But, I had to just try one to see. . . . .

Remember: "No one every went broke underestimating the taste of the
American public."

Remember: "There's a ****er born every minute."

Yes, it disappoints me that they make such things, but it doesn't
surprise me!

Yep they sell it, at least they do here in St. Louis. Marie Callander's
just came up with a crockpot meal similar to Banquet. I love Callandar's pot pies.

I think the point of it all is to *not* take long hours of time. I'm
guessing the demographics show that working moms put the frozen glop in the
crockpot in the morning and dinner is ready when she gets home from work.
In my neighbor's case it's convenience. She has arthritis and can't slice
the meat or chop the veggies.
