No, wait. Not all at once. I mean, I frequently have one for lunch. One at a time. Per day. Whatever.
Anyway, I'm not a huge carnivore, so I typically get meatless varieties. And there are a lot of them, fortunately. Beans and rice, broccoli and cheddar potatoes, cheese ravioli - they're all pretty good. Every once in a while I'll get a chicken type (Thai style chicken and rice noodles - yum!). But I don't ever get anything made with beef. I rarely eat beef. Beloved Spouse isn't supposed to have red meat, and I don't really miss it. I cook with ground turkey, and although I'm not supposed to say this in Texas, I'm not a raving fan of either brisket or steak.
