9. Same here.

Those things kept me going for a few yrs when I didn't have the time or energy to cook. That was a lifetime ago.

Then, yrs later, there's a memorable story about my 4yr who had watched me microwave these when I was in a pinch for time.

His dad was living in England for a few months when I suddenly fell horribly sick - high fever, vomiting, dizzy. My precocious little guy (was reading at 2) pulled tv dinners out of the freezer & fixed them for the 2 of us until his dad got a flight home. He was truly unbelievably helpful taking care of his mom.

I had no family within 400+ miles, hated the neighbors, & would drop dead before asking work associates for help. But my kid knew how to use the microwave, apparently, & how long to nuke Swanson tv dinners!

So, don't knock these time-savers because they can be "lifesavers."
