Almost anything by Marie Callendar's.  Especially the chicken pot pie.

Amen! Those were my go-to lunches for a few weeks. I had coworkers snarking about how unhealthy they are and I'd joke "What, they've got the major food groups. Grains, poultry, veggies and dairy!" (least I think so, since the sauce is creamy)

I also enjoy some of WW smart one meals and Stouffer's lasagnas.

Their cheese enchilada is delicious! I also like their broccoli pot pie, the cheese pizza snacks, and the cheese and bean nacho snacks.

Metallica, you must live in my neck of the woods.  Caputos is a local chain.

And it's right down the street from me.  We must all live near each other. :)

Trader Joe's butter chicken and their spinach mushroom quiches. If I have to go into the office early, I take a quiche for breakfast- fast and yummy.
If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

Entemann's (sp?) chocolate chip cookies were a special treat growing up. I have not to this day tasted any cookies that compare.

Stouffer's Lasagna - always an easy go-to meal for a family, and everyone loves it.

Trader Joe's frozen butter chicken. Not quite as good as the Indian restaurant, but still delicious. Now if I could only manage to eat it without wearing it, it'd be an achievement.

Publix carrot cake and key lime pie - I could eat these daily and be content.

Country Crock mashed potatoes, the roasted garlic flavor - we eat them weekly. SO GOOD.

Skinny Cow ice cream cones, especially the vanilla/caramel ones. I don't miss a thing compared to Drumstick ones, and they're half the calories.

Fer cryin' out loud, I forgot to put my own favorite store bought pre-made food that is surprisingly good.

Jewel "Essentials Everday" or whatever their store brand pizza is now called.  Their Thin-n-Crispy Deluxe (my favorite), Pepperoni (son's favorite), and Sausage (husband's favorite) frozen Pizzas are the only ones we will purchase.  They are phenomenal - my husband didn't believe me when I first told him about them - now he's a believer.  And when we can get 4 for $10 you can believe I stock the freezer! :)

Reame's Frozen Home Style Noodles. Just shred a rotisserie chicken, add a package of chicken broth and put the noodles in it. Amazing.

Totino's Pizza Rolls. Son loves them, I love them.

Oh, I forgot about the pizza rolls! They're wonderful for a quick (well, not so quick, really) snack.

Sabra Roasted Garlic hummus. And then I add more minced garlic in. And eat it on garlic pita. Or garlic naan.
