So today I went and bought a zillion frozen dinners. Healthy Choice, Lean Cuisine, and Smart Ones. If it looked remotely appealing, it went in the cart. I tried to keep them below 600 grams of sodium, but that was impossible in some cases. I also got some frozen Indian dinners…chicken tikka masala, etc. I was pretty much out of luck with those in terms of sodium, but right next to them were some vegetarian dinners that had 350 grams…so I got both.
I also picked up a bag of frozen chicken, because I had the niggling feeling that I hadn’t been able to find any lately.
When I got home, I took everything out of the freezer in order to make things fit. I stacked the frozen dinners in the back and juggled most of the frozen veggies into the door. Then I started trying to fit all the meat back in.
I discovered during the course of all this that I already had three bags of frozen chicken in there.
One bag only had one chicken breast left, and it looked pretty crystallized so I threw it away. I also tossed a mostly-empty carton of ice cream and a mostly-empty tub of Cool Whip. Then I rearranged and rearranged and rearranged, trying to make it work. But no matter what I tried, I couldn’t get the door to close.
Finally I gave up and I threw away the oldest bag of chicken. It looked pretty crystallized anyway. As for the rest…well, let’s just say that tonight’s dinner will consist of:
- Hella frozen french fries
- Hella steamed veggies
