I’ve been out of town, and returned, hungry, to an empty refrigerator, but was thankful to remember that I’d made an impulse buy of a Stouffer’s frozen lasagna a couple of weeks ago, and still had it stashed in the freezer. Cooked it per directions (took 75 minutes), and was absolutely gobsmacked at how horribly it tasted: gummy, grossly spiced, and literally inedible. I tossed the thing into the garbage and went to bed hungry.
I had a good friend in Greenwich back a couple of decades ago who was the retired head of Stouffer’s and if we hadn’t lost touch, I’d ask him how such a product could be produced. Surely there has to some sort of product quality board that tests new items, but how on earth could a panel comprised of human beings dig into this horrible mess and proclaim it fit for consumption, let alone release it as a product? Alan? Any thoughts?
