Yummy Tummy Time!

Today I'm eating Zatarain's New Orleans Style Red Beans & Rice with Sausage frozen meals.
You can expect to pay around $3 at a Wal-Mart or something insane everywhere else for this 12 oz package.

Unlike some frozen meals which have complicated instructions this meal is pretty darn simple. I'll give you a step by step.

  1. Remove bowl from carton. Cut slit in center of film.
  2. Microwave on high for 3 minutes. Pull film back & stir. Re-Cover & microwave on high for 45 seconds to 1 minute.
  3.  Let stand 1 minute. Stir and eat.

Simple?!!! Your should look like this.

Yes it looks a little umm watery even after stirring but hey. It's a frozen dinner. You want to go through cooking this on the stove and keep stirring and stirring? Maybe you do..
The sausage is tender with a tiny bit of rubbery texture. Lots of celery flavor. Not too spicy but enough to let you know it's red beans & rice. Everything about the meal is pretty good. Even the portions. But could use a few more pieces of sausage.

Now for all you healthy people out there the nutrition facts are I guess pretty normal for a frozen meal.
Calories 560, Total Fat 19g, Saturated Fat 7g, no Trans Fat, Cholesterol 30mg, Sodium 980mg(wooo doggy!), Total Carbohydrate 76g, Dietary Fiber 7g, Sugars 5g, Protein 18g

 Allergen Warnings: Wheat, Milk, Soy
To be fair.. You should know whats in red beans & rice.

If you have any frozen meals you want me to try out & review just post it in the comment section and I'll give it a taste.
