September 10: National TV Dinner Day

I’ve got your dinner planned today, and, unlike some of our food holidays (National Crab-Stuffed Flounder Day? National Baked Alaska Day?), it’s nice and easy. September 10 is National TV Dinner Day!

image credit Smile Lee at 1953, Swanson produced the first “TV Brand Frozen Dinners” which sold like hotcakes.  These first frozen  dinners came with a main dish and a vegetable in an aluminum tray, ready to be heated for 25 minutes in the oven. When ready, the dinners fit perfectly on a tv tray.

Today’s TV dinners often have a few different side dishes and a dessert along with the entree, and take only a few minutes in the microwave. Personally, I don’t typically do tv dinners, but I have enjoyed  those “steamer” microwave dinners when I’ve taken my lunch to work.

Bon appetit!

“Taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.”

Psalm 34:8
