We all like different things and I’m usually hesitant to recommend something as . . what’s the word?? Not gross, not unappetizing . . I don’t know. Frozen dinners don’t rank real high on my list of yummy foods but I do try to keep a couple in the freezer for emergencies.
It seems like the old ones that I liked are no longer available. There was a brand – Patio or El Patio that made really cheap Mexican frozen dinners and I loved those. The cheese in the enchiladas was good. The beans were good. I can’t find those anywhere now.
Then for a while, I could buy something like Sam’s Choice at Walmart and I liked a bunch of those – really liked them a lot.
Last time I was in MO or maybe it was the time before that – probably then because I was here alone and thought I might eat some frozen dinners so I checked out the selection and it was kinda slim. Frozen pizza . . every flavor, every size . . didn’t want that though.
I bought one of these.
Maybe the El Monterey is what I’m thinking of instead of El Patio. Who knows. When I got to MO Sunday evening, I was so tired. I thought of running out and grabbing something from a restaurant and bringing it home but I was just too tired. I was very thankful for a couple of frozen dinners in the freezer but my expectations were not really high.
This one was really good. I would definitely eat it again. I didn’t look at sodium or calories or fat – sometimes when you eat something like this, you just don’t want to know. I don’t make a habit of it but I will buy another one or two of these to keep in the freezer.
I didn’t buy them yesterday because I had brought a cooler full of food from the Texas freezer and was able to get it all in the fridge freezers but had zero space.
Today, the movers will be bringing one of our freezers and I’m very thankful to have it! Probably those of us who have grown up with our parents and grandparents always having “deep freezers” can’t live without them. Those who never had them don’t see the need. I’m in the “can’t live without” them category!
