Never knew there was such a thing but Sandra Lee found them! Rosemary & 
Garlic. Nuked then tossed with scallions and bacon bits and mayo.

Her and her 10 pounds of hair spray never cease to amaze me!

But certainly . . . you may purchase them baked or boiled, sliced, diced, 
shredded, mashed, stuffed or not.  Right next to the package of sliced 
onions.  ;o)

I'm no stranger to processed frozen foods! I probably would've went for a bag 
of potato puffs and rosemary and garlic'd them up myself.

I'm waiting for Sandra's next food show: Semi Drive-Thru.

No, no . . . you misunderstand.  The above mentioned potato items may be 
purchased in the fresh veggie department.  No need to thaw.

O.k.  We doing a picnic?  We can pick up everything we need at the store for 
burgers, potato salad, cole slaw, fruit salad and drinks.  Don't forget to 
pick up the paper plates, cups and cutlery.  Oh and, don't forget the 
charcoal.

I'm a paper plate, plastic cups and cutlery expert!

But why the charcoal? Can't we let the box of frozen White Castle burgers 
thaw in the sun?

While in the meantime I'll row us around the lake and we can sip from a box 
o' wine and such???

Not as convenient as Hamburger Helper with freeze-dried hamburger
already mixed in.

At least we have the fact that she's the wife of the holding
company chairman of the board to explain how Willow Bay keeps
getting on the air.

Do you mean those tubs of pre-cooked and mashed spuds that one 
sees at the stupidmarket? I've never watched Sandra Lee and I'm
starting to be very glad...

Yep.  They come in a bag too.  I tried them to see what they were like. 
We didn't care for them at all.  But then, I really don't like the 
instant that much either.  I do use instant now and then but I use stock 
in place of water so they are okay.  I've never tried that pre-cooked 
bacon laying in the boxes in the middle of the aisle but I doubt I'd like 
it much either.  Ya' just can't substitute convenience foods for some 
things.
