There are certain things in life that sound better than they actually are. The 2-hour Jazz Concert, hot chocolate, outdoor camping, and the Complimentary Continental Breakfast to name a few. However, what tops this list has to be Gourmet Frozen Dinners.
I get sucked in every time. I stand at the freezer section of the grocery store and ponder at the delicious choices. How could I go wrong with butternut squash linguini in a creamy sauce with walnuts, snap peas and carrots or grilled tender white meat chicken and whole grain vermicelli in a creamy garlic sauce with asparagus and cherry tomatoes?
Even though the voice inside me keeps reminding me of my disappointment over the soggy roasted chicken pizza or the crunchy cheese ravioli, I choose to ignore it and believe the picture on the box convinced that this time it will be different. This time convenience and gourmet eating will converge into a delectable meal prepared in less than three minutes. Who am I kidding?! The only successful frozen dinner are the ones prepared for my children. Just like the toy in the bottom of the cereal box, they’re only into it for the nasty brownie like goo that doubles as a form of dessert.
Next time as I walk the isles of the grocery store, I am going to avoid the frozen food section entirely. I’d rather spend my money on Hamburger Helper. It’s not as glamorous, but it always meets my expectations.
