TV trays

Handwritten page of a diary dated July 21, 1999

wanted to pull over because he saw an antique shop. Of course. He’s as bad as my grandma.

Wanted to borrow 10 bucks so he could get this cast iron pan “perfectly seasoned and not a bit of rust on it.” So I said he could borrow the 10 bucks if he borrowed 20 instead and also bought the TV trays I found.

He said it wasn’t fair and I said the person with the money has all the power, then I walked away and looked at other stuff. He came up behind me and said TV trays are “so 1950s” as if he didn’t already know how stubborn I am when I want something. But if he didn’t know before he does now.

He was right. Steaks fried in that cast iron pan ARE better and especially when he unfolds the TV tray and serves me while I’m watching the Drew Carey show or Mystery Science Theater 3000.

  1. Now you’ve got me craving one if those Swanson TV dinners… Not one of those new fangled ones… The ORIGINAL ones that came with soup AND a dessert which always was too cooked on top and gooey on the inside.

    • Oh, you mean like this?

      • That’s it! But the tomato soup never looked that good. First, it had that skin on it from cooking too hot. Also, you lost like HALF of it from taking off the special soup lid you had to keep on during baking. And the apple crumble….Where’s the dark black carbon topping just like mom used to make? D-E-lish!
