Petro Can Mini Mart sounds right to me.

My petro-conbi down the street sells microwave tv dinners. Would it be allowed to nuke, plate nicely, top with a sprig of parsley, for an entree?

I come back to DC, not just for cooking info, but also because y'all are nuts! I think the polls this time around will have to have buttons for "-1 vote."

To all tossing in their chips into this GCCS Challenge, best of luck, I will be voting for plates of not only creative preparations but also with fun names.

You can present anything you like, as long as you get it at the convenience store. So, if a TV dinner with a sprig of parsley is what you like...remember, you have to eat it! And give a critique. Shrek is already telling me he's "not gonna eat that!"

I just wish they had had a larger selection of frozen foods...only pizzas. Not even a frozen green bean!

Sorry, I had a house full of people for lunch and haven't been available much yesterday and today.

Alix, I would say Mac's and 7/11 are pretty much the same and I am using 7/11. The PetroCan Mini Mart would be along the same lines as well and I would probably use them but the one up the street from us doesn't have the store...yet.

Oh no! I've been gardening and need to get started on this challenge. I know what my dessert will be. And have ideas on the entree. The drink is pretty much settled.....I'm still unsure about the appetizer!

The appetizer has been the hardest for me. Not sure about my dessert choice, either.

The dessert was the easiest for me. I am waffling on my main. Fun, fun!
