My swan song

Caz dared me to do this. One last attempt to test out frozen/packaged dinners, to see if the serving suggestion looked even remotely like the finished product.

I present Exhibit A: a pizza all lovely and filled with herbs and garlic and chunks of succulent pumpkin and feta.
The packet

It's called Lean Cuisine, but it should be Mean Cuisine. Even Alexander Beetle would be hungry after eating this.

Mini meal prepared
You may be wondering why I didn't take a closer picture. The truth was, the camera kept passing out on me, refusing to take a shot if I got too close. Don't blame it really.

mmmm, prevomited dinner

At this point my camera lost the will to live.
Yes, it tasted revolting,

And here I thought you were going to burn it!

Great leaping, unnamed deities! That's supposedly edible?! And pray, forgive my American provincialism, but pumpkin on a pizza? That just ain't right.
;-) (although I did enjoy the tiny corn and prawns I got on a pizza in England once)

I've seen more appetising things on the footpath outside a pub at 7 am on a Sunday morning. I think I'd rather eat Katie's placenta if it was down to a choice between it and that pizza.

I was wondering about these since I saw them advertised on TV. They look tiny even on TV so I can imagine you would have needed a microscope to see them in reality.

Pity it tasted bad - how can you ruin pumpkin and feta?

Sweet Jesus. That's horrific. I'll be holding a special silence for you on Anzac Day.

Thank you one and all for your concern over my welfare. Yes, I did eat this, but it really has to be the last one of these frozen fiascos, I don't think my digestive system can take it any more.

All that surgery and stress, and how do I repay my surgeou? By eating crap. It can't be good karma.

Today I made fresh pumpkin soup out of a whole butternut pumpkin and an onion, topped with fresh parsley from the garden.

I'm starting to feel human again.

Now retailing at NQR for $2.99.

BTW I made a heap of homemade pesto & tapenade. The Bloke is brewing up a storm with the latest batch of stout, porter & ginger beer.

That thing looked hideous enough in the photo on the box: definitely one from the "whee! I'm gonna dump some veggie crap on a stack of mountain bread and call it a recipe!" school of Hippie Cuisine.

Glad you're stopping the experiment. I started making an unattractive keening noise whenever I looked at those photos.

Yeah, baby, yeah.
Eurovision is just around teh corner adn Iceland is on teh edge of its seat!
It sure will be fun and less classical this year!

Yeah - of course pizzas aren't fattening if they're the size of a minidisc.

The worst Lean Cuisine is "Salmon Gratin with Lemon & Dill". One tiny square of salmon, a whole lot of foul-tasting creamy sauce.
