What is one convenience food you never buy? - Page 2

I don't know if they count as convenience foods, but Little Debbie Cakes, Twinkies, Ding Dongs, etc., will nover cross the threshold into my house.

Uncrustables... I bought a sealer from Pampered Chef and just make my own. And I never buy frozen french fries or instant potatoes.. once youve mastered homemade, you can never go back

I wanted to be just like you, when I grow up, till you wrote this

I would have to say boxed mac & cheese. Homemade is sooo much better.

Frozen dinners, mac & cheese, most of the kid products like uncrustables.

I like the new flavored BC instant potatoes (Garlic & Cheddar are my fav) and use them often.
I prefer Stouffers Lasagna to homemade.
Nestle filled cookie dough ready to bake (49 cents after sale & Q) can't be beat.
Nabisco Chips Ahoy Softbaked ($1.50 for 3 dz after sale & Q) warmed in the microwave good as freshbaked anyday.
Digiorno Pizza for $3 - $4 saves me many a night in the kitchen

What I would not buy: Pot-pies (due to pea allergies) and hotpockets. Bought a machine for $5 at a yard sale that allows me to make mini pies at home with my own ingredients, great for using up left overs or fruit filling.

I broke down and bought the Uncrustables for DS. Commissary had them on sale for $1.69 w/ $1 off Q = .69 / 4 = 17 cents a sandwich. Not something I would buy on a regular basis though.

Sorry to shatter your illusions, Ruthie - to me, those cake-y things just taste vile. If I want something sweet and cake-y, I'll make my grandmother's brownies.

And homemade mac and cheese ROCKS!

I never buy the Uncrustables. Yuk! However, I do buy a lot of other convenience items, b/c sometimes it is just easier! I do look for sale items, though!

If I can't pronounce the ingredients, I don't buy it.

Why is everyone on the Uncrustables when I just bought them for the 1st time today for myself??? Today I had printed some Uncrustable's coupons because DS LOVES them. He eats them at church, school, & at friends. I have always said I am NOT going to pay that for that when I can make it myself a lot cheeper! So I was going to see. They were only $2 at wal-mart & with my $1 off I just paid a buck a box. Now if you do the math & add what its worth & your time. Some times what its worth to just feed the kids quickly & not hear them fuss. (I know you all have been at this point at some time) & you now have 5 more mins to clean something else up. They start to not sound to bad .......
