So, I know this thread will make some of the more hard-core all-haute-all-the-time posters wince and wrinkle, but:
So I'm a poor, single graduate student, which means that I spend a lot of time at home, and I have neither the time to cook as often as I'd like, nor the funds to eat out as often as I'd like. So I'm on the lookout for convenience foods (pre-prepared dried, pre-prepared frozen, etc.) stuff that won't actually *hurt* or humiliate me.
So far, I've figured out the following decent ones:
Trader Joe's Three-Mushroom Pizza
Trader Joe's Butternut Squash Pasta
Anna's Texasburger veggieburger
Ling Ling Potstickers at Costco (this is the major-special secret discovery of the year, dude. They've got a picture of a panda on them.)
Dumpling Master on Atlantic in Monterey Park sells bags of their dumplings frozen. Much pricier, but yum.
More, I need more, I've eaten enough three-mushroom pizzas for at least four lifetimes. Suggestions?
