My first TV dinner

To celebrate its 50th anniversary, I had my very first TV dinner: Swanson's classic fried chicken, with sides of corn and mashed potatoes, rated the best of the bunch.

It's just okay.

It's kind of like airplane food, or Disneyland food: not terrible but not especially memorable. Bland. And the serving sizes of the sides are tiny, much smaller than in the picture, with only two pieces of chicken, not three (I guess Swanson has been downsizing). And it takes half an hour in the oven. I was kind of disappointed, really. I think I'll stick to ramen and popcorn for those I-don't-feel-like-cooking-anything-at-all days.
