At a recent trip to Target we stood behind a family who seems to have found the solution to cooking family meals… don’t!
This mom and grandma, with toddler in tow, had stocked up on what looked like a months worth of Smart Ones meals. What you see on the bottom of that cart only represents half of what she was buying.
Anyone out there a big fan of Smart Ones? Do you think this is a good way to feed the fam? Or perhaps she cooks real food for them but is just trying to keep her points down and fit into that bathing suit this summer.
Damn, I hope her micro doesn’t go on the fritz!

The Smart Ones meals are very cheap. However, not very fulfilling. I buy them for myself (no one else will eat them – plus they are very bad! Loaded with sodium).
I only make eat them as an absolute last resort when i have to go from Job #1 to Job #2 in less than 30 minutes.
They’re pretty much the opposite of tasty, but if you have willpower, they do have a small amount of calories compared to the alternatives. My bet is she was keeping them for herself . . . since, like Darlene said, it’s unlikely anyone else would eat them!
