hungry man
there’s always something a bit nerve-wracking about eating artifically formed food (hello mcRib!). this was pretty darn good. the breading is seasoned and has a lot of flavor. the chicken is fairly tender. the fries were slightly crunchy instead of the usual soggy mess (i cooked it in the overn, not the microwave). this gets a b+

fried rice
pretty good japanese-style fried rice with decent rice and decent flavor, if a tiny bit on the bland side. wifey likes it a lot. grade: b

fish sticks
the breading is yum, and it’s really crispy! the fish was kind’a dry, but that could’ve been my fault…i think i overcooked them a bit. i don’t know about the 25% bigger…bigger than what?? they’re about the same size as any other fish stick i’ve had. it gets a b. maybe it’ll get a better grade next time if it turns out i did overcook ’em.

sugar cane drink
don’t know what possessed me to try this, since i don’t like any other imperatae drink. this one wasn’t quite as nasty as other imperatae cane drinks, but it’s bad enough. d

essensia pizza
this looked a lot more promising than it really is. texture and taste-wise, it reminds me of a slightly better “mama celeste” frozen pizza. the sausage is pretty good though. it gets a c.

hungry man popcorn chicken
i usually *like* swanson’s tv dinners, but this one was surprisingly bland. the chicken was bland. the breading was bland. the sauce was like watered down marinara sauce. the pizza sticks were like unflavored dough filled with bland cheese. sorry swanson: this gets a c-

trader ming’s pad thai

trader ming's pad thai
not quite sure how “trader joe” became “trader ming.” i guess that’s his “asian” alias. this pad thai is very skimpy on the quantity and very sour. maybe it’s authentic, maybe not. i’m not a pad thai lover enough to tell the difference. it’s quick and easy to prepare though. b-

stouffer’s corner bistro beef tips in bbq sauce

Blogged by edjusted as foodstuffs — edjusted Sun 1 Apr 2007 5:00 pm

beef in bbq sauce
the beef’s pretty tender, but the sweet bbq sauce is kind’a boring. the potato wedges with cheese and bacon is nothing to write home about. so far, none of the stouffer’s “corner bistro” entree’s have been particularly good or exciting. c-

kimbo green onion pancake

green onion pancake
the first bite was good, but wasn’t too crazy about the texture on subsequent bites: it’s a bit too dense and doughy for this kind of pancake. not quite enough onions so overall it’s a bit on the bland side. not too bad though, and i’ll try it with egg later. cutie likes it a lot. i give it a “c”.

margaritaville jammin’ jerk shrimp

shrimp
this is something new that i’m mostly doing for myself. my memory is getting really bad with “trivia”…things like whether or not something i ate was good, restaurant names, etc. so i’ve decided to rate random foodstuffs i buy at supermarkets.

first up…margaritaville jammin’ jerk shrimp! first impressions of the shrimp went from “wow, look at the size of those shrimp!” to “whoa…look at how much they shrunk!” but i guess that’s normal for shrimp. very tasty, if a bit too…salty. never had “jerk” anything before, so i can’t really judge how authentic it is. b+
