How often do you fall back on this time-honored staple?
|by Honey||reply 39||04/23/2013|
Very seldom as the food is lethal. However, now and again one of those microwaveable pot pies hits the spot. Best not to read the label

For $2.75 Marie is hard to beat for a quick balanced meal.
I doctor mine heavily with the correct spices/condiments/accoutrements.

The coconut cream single is 8 points plus on weight watchers. Damn.

I like the berry pie and the chicken pot pie. I like pie.

It's horrifyingly bad shit.
Don't you bitches know how to cook?
|by Honey||reply 6||04/22/2013|
Shut up asswipe @ r6!
Sometimes I don't feel like cooking.
Fuck you dead.
|by Honey||reply 7||04/22/2013|
Her frozen sucks but the restaurants were really good.
|by Honey||reply 8||04/22/2013|
Cooking is a window into your soul. If you only care enough to serve that frozen, preserved bullshit excuse for food you are probably the same.
|by Honey||reply 9||04/22/2013|
Every once in awhile during the winter I'll have one of their chicken pot pies. I know they probably aren't very good for me, but eating one once in awhile isn't going to hurt.
|by Honey||reply 10||04/22/2013|
The restaurant has good pie.
|by Honey||reply 11||04/22/2013|
I second R6, I've never bought it, never will.

It's the Mercedes of TV dinners. It's the premier top of the line brand when it cums to frozen meals.

A co-worker of mine eats one of MC's microwaveables every other day for lunch.

Her pies are okay. The frozen dinners are gross
|by Honey||reply 16||04/22/2013|
Ate at Marie Callender's last week for the first time in a very long time, and I wasn't impressed. The salad was too watery, the cornbread was dry and flavorless, and the pot pie was all right, but nothing special. I remember the food being better than that. Their dessert pies are good though.
|by Honey||reply 17||04/22/2013|
Never. I looked at the fat and calorie content and never looked at it again.
|by Honey||reply 18||04/23/2013|
There are Marie callender restaurants? Where are they?
|by Honey||reply 19||04/23/2013|
in the west
|by Honey||reply 20||04/23/2013|
Strip malls and power centers, mostly, R19.
|by Honey||reply 21||04/23/2013|
They are very fattening.
|by Honey||reply 22||04/23/2013|
The only thing I will eat at Marie is their quiche and pies.
Otherwise, the place reminds me of an assistive living facility.
|by Honey||reply 23||04/23/2013|
Marie Callender TV dinners taste like shit. Even those cheap ass Banquet ones taste better.
|by Honey||reply 24||04/23/2013|
How do MC chicken pot pies compare to Stouffer's? I crave Stouffer's pot pies every once in a while.
|by Honey||reply 25||04/23/2013|
There are 64 grams of fat in the pot pie (24 of which are saturated).
|by Honey||reply 26||04/23/2013|
Yeah, yeah, r26, but how do they taste?
|by Honey||reply 27||04/23/2013|
When I was hurting for money and Safeway had a sale, I bought 20 or more pot pies and eat one everyday. The bag boy felt really sorry for me. So did I after I ate all the pot pies. They are really loaded with sodium, not to mention fat.
|by Honey||reply 28||04/23/2013|
There are a million recipes out there for this type of "food". Get one, use fresh ingredients, and you're far better off. You can cut the fat and the salt. These manufacturers hook us with the salt fat and sugar. Want to loose weight? Drop this kind of shit and learn to cook.

I shat in [R30]'s mouth last night.

Used to be family owned company.
Sold off in the 80's and sold again several times.
It's just corporate crap now.
|by Honey||reply 32||04/23/2013|
I don't think I've been to one in years.
But then, the only difference between a Marie Callendar's and a Denny's is the pie, and I have a local store that makes big, wonderful, reasonably priced pies out of fresh local fruit. Mmm, pie. I think I'll buy one tonight.
|by Honey||reply 33||04/23/2013|
Every year on my birthday i get their fresh strawberry pie. Delish!!

My friend's 85-yr. old mother is addicted to anything MC. She hasn't cooked in years and just pops those in the oven. Healthy as a horse.
Her husband died of heart disease 8 years ago, however.

Some of these dinners are quite tasty. There's nothing wrong with them. They are priced right and are better than eating a sandwich.
All the haters can just fuck off and die.
|by Honey||reply 36||04/23/2013|
I agree with R36. On sale these things can't be beat and every time I make something of hers at work someone always comments on how delicious it smells. Besides, even the box says only 260-500 delicious calories. If that's true-they are far tastier than that Lean Cuisine or Weight Watchers frozen gruel.
|by Honey||reply 37||04/23/2013|
Stouffer's tv dinners are way better. Love the turkey and stuffing meals.
|by Honey||reply 38||04/23/2013|
Pies are good, but her frozen dinners taste like shit.
