Meal Description and Cooking Instructions

My final dinner of this five-day trial was the Cheese Ravioli.  A healthy serving of cheese ravioli in a tomato-based, four-cheese sauce was accompanied by a side of green beans and sliced almonds.  I had thawed the meal in my refrigerator, and a microwave cooking time of three minutes turned out to be ideal. The directions call for a cooking time of 4 to 5 minutes if the meal is still in a frozen state.

Meal Description and Cooking Instructions

I had Jamaican Style Bean and Sweet Potato Stew for lunch on the fifth day.  The serving was a hearty one, filling my soup bowl almost to the brim. In addition to large chunks of sweet potatoes, the dish contained kidney beans, black beans, garbanzo beans, plantains, green and red peppers, and onions.  The instructions called for heating it in the microwave for 3 to 4 minutes on HIGH.  Four minutes in my microwave brought it to the right temperature for me.  The directions call for a cooking time of 4 to 5 minutes if the meal is still frozen.

Meal Description and Cooking Instructions

Chicken and Mushroom Crepes was my breakfast entrée on the third day.  It consisted of two sizeable crepes, stuffed with a filling of chicken and mushrooms in a Swiss cheese sauce, with a side of sweet potato and zucchini hash.  I had thawed it in the refrigerator, so I heated it in the microwave for two minutes, as per the directions.  This was not quite long enough; the crepes were only lukewarm, so I nuked the meal for another forty-five seconds, and they were fine.  The instructions indicate to nuke the meal for 3 to 4 minutes if it is still frozen.
