We were in the frozen food section and came upon the Hungry Man Pub Favorites Chopped Beef Steak. One of us exclaimed "For Science!" - and today we'll tell you all about it. We'll also tell you about Patak's Original Butter Chicken with Rice, InnovAsian General Tso's Chicken, and the Voila Cheddar Chicken Potato Skillet Meal. We'll even read some listener emails, discover Heritage Turkeys, and wax nostalgic about meals we've had in the past.
