I bite my cuticles so maybe I just like the taste of skin.

Beautiful.


Seriously... yours is much more beautiful than mine. We don't even mix the sauce with the meat, we just dip.


I'm really hungry right now.

Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

It's my crappy iPod camera and I wasn't about to fix the room lighting for esink.

Also, we have one and two half whites and one and two half non-whites so our white balance is just fine thank you very much.

Ummm...   :lol:


http://www.traderjoesfan.com/Trader_Joes/mandarin_orange_chicken/details/

I don't recall the cost off hand.  $5 or so, I think

Fuck I love that stuff. I have to make sure not to cook it too often. We always bake it. The BBQ chicken one is nice because you can microwave it, but it's not as addictive.

Micah, these aren't frozen dinners like you'd think of TV dinners. But they're frozen and easy to make which is perfect for me, and less unhealthy than other frozen choices. Also expensive but much cheaper than eating out. We have to make two bags now if we want everybody to eat a full serving. One bag serves two adults.

Coming back to this six years later. A year or two ago it seems like the sauce for this changed a bit. Got a little spicier or tangier or something. I stopped eating the sauce, but continue to love the chicken.

Given that change, though, the Trader Joe's Orange Chicken is no longer our most common meal. It has even been surpassed in the "quick and easy meals even I can make" rankings by Trader Joe's Teriyaki Chicken (which I think is what I was referring to above as BBQ chicken).

The teriyaki chicken is great because it tastes good, both the kids like it (a lot) and it only takes a few minutes in the microwave versus 20 minutes in the oven for the orange chicken.

Other updates relevant to this thread:

* I still love turbo chicken.
* We still don't make anything else in the turbo. Ok, I actually did make crab in the turbo the other day, but that was dumb. (I was trying to steam it and our larger pots were not yet unpacked from a recent move or were dirty, so I figured I could put it in the turbo with a little water and it would steam. But because it's low-temp, before the water could boil to create steam the turbo cooked the crab and it just didn't taste right. Doh!)

* My list from this post: https://www.entropysink.com/forums/index.php?topic=11476.msg130271#msg130271 is still quite accurate.
- Tacos has moved up. We just started using these small tortillas or tortilla boats which we all like better.
- Cous cous has moved down
- We don't cook steak anymore.

* We eat out more often than we did (or should).. we can't help it- too lazy/tired all the time.
