when i was little, i thought tv dinners were fabulous.
hmmm. i think i probably just dated myself with that statement. heh.
[putting in dentures and squinting from rocking chair] don't know what a tv dinner is/was? it's just what they used to call frozen dinners back in my day. they were in divided trays made of foil, because there were no microwaves back then. you actually turned on the OVEN and baked it, and it wasn't ready in 5 minutes, but more like 25. oh, yes. and they usually consisted of a meat entree, a starch, and a veggie. salisbury steak was my favorite.
i know i've made/posted about salisbury steak before, but seriously, this recipe is just so delicious. and last night, i served it in true tv dinner-style - with mashed potatoes and corn. all i needed was a divided plate, but i settled for a plain old dinner dish instead.
huh. i guess mine wasn't accurate after all - i didn't have dessert in the mix. oh, well.
MIL enjoyed dinner with us too, since she was hanging out with us after a long day with g-wan - her MIL. heh. it's nice to be able to serve her dinner and do her dishes for a change.
see? i told you my dinners were pretty uninspired these days. ho-hum.
