A Marie Calendar’s Chicken Pot Pie for the win! It was getting late and I didn’t feel like eating anything that was in the refrigerator that I had cooked to take to work. I knew that I needed to get something in my stomach before I went to bed. After a myLot discussion last week I believe it was, I believe it was Linda OH who mentioned her husband had brought her home a pot pie. I was reminded of this brand that I really like. So I had picked myself up one and only one from the market. $2.38. The banquet brand would’ve been cheaper but those are the gross ones my mother used to buy for us when we were kids. Microwaved it for 5 1/2 minutes, let it cool just a minute or so and then I removed it from the container put it in a bowl, and of course it had black pepper! It was enough. And it was simple enough to prepare without any effort.

I tried those at Marie Calendar’s restaurant in Los Angeles, I am not a fan, but I am glad you enjoyed.

@SonjaRae I do not remember where in Los Angeles, because we were invited by friends and they brought us there with their car.

Pretty eats those. I'm not a fan. (Usually, if we don't feel like cooking and don't want anything out of the fridge or freezer, we eat some some Campbell's Chunky Soup. I like Steak and Potato or Steak, Potato and Cheese soup.)

@SonjaRae Yeah, I guess so... As long as we find things we like to eat, it doesn't matter if everyone else likes it.

Gotcha. I am not a fan of Campbell’s unless it’s chicken noodle. I’ve never cared for canned beef soups either. Our individual pallets are uniquely different.

That really looks sumptuous. I've never tried a chicken pot pie before. It's something that we don't have here.

Are they filled up fairly well? The Giant Eagle one that my husband bought was mostly crust.

For my liking Linda, yes! They have 2 sizes, the larger one is very nicely filled.

Fast food? Is a store bought frozen meal considered fast food?
