      I purchased this frozen dinner, what would have been called a “tv dinner” when I was a kid out of a fit of nostalgia. My husband was out of town and I wanted to relive a taste from my youth. The brand I remember from childhood did not carry this meal anymore, but Banquet did so I purchased this from them.

      This meal was very reasonably priced at my local store. The normal daily price is $1.15 but I found it on sale for .88. At that price I cannot believe I could


      get a whole meal. For that .88 I got 7 grams of fat and 300 calories and 2 slices of turkey, one slice white meat the other dark meat, a bin of peas and a bin of mashed potatoes.

      I chose to go with the microwave option for cooking this meal. The meal came out perfect in the time recommended. Their directions worked excellently. I did not find the meat to be overcooked by using the microwave versus the oven at all.

      My stuffing which was under the turkey ended up being soggy.


      • It did not taste fantastic. The gravy on the turkey and the stuffing was thin, but had a good flavor. It could have been thicker for my taste.

        The turkey was not fatty and I did not get any pieces of fat or gristle in my meal. The turkey seemed to be of a processed variety. It was not real fresh turkey but I enjoyed the flavor. I normally do not like dark meat but I found the flavor to be quite nice on both pieces.

        My mashed potatoes were excellent. The

        texture was closer to real mashed potatoes versus instant. I liked them quite a bit. They did not have a lot of flavor but I very much enjoyed them.

        The peas that came with this meal were very nice. They tasted exactly like all frozen peas. They were plump and green and I enjoyed them.

        I do recommend this to others and I plan on buying it again. You get what you pay for. If you want more food you will need to spend more, but for .88 I could not ask for more.
