Comment on A Comparison of Actual “Banquet” Frozen Dinners with their Box Cover Photographs by Cynthia.

The terms “frozen foods” and “culinary” should never be used in the same sentence. It just doesn’t exist. Once you’ve frozen a meal the freshness, texture and quality of the food decreases 90{3d9e2dd3ff4a6ad7c579f6992fba32c39af0ae46cb1a0bfdb9adec03cc9df88f} – I don’t understand why people “freezer cook” they spend all day in the kitchen to create a week or two worth of meals only to freeze them. I understand that it saves them time but at the same time the food just isn’t as good. I’d rather take some extra time to fix my meals each night and have an amazingly fresh, delicious meal than have a freezer full of frozen, mediocre meals for my family. YUCK!
