    We don't use convenience foods often, but it's a nice option for when my teaching/tutoring schedule goes bonkers and I end up coming home an hour before hubby goes to bed (he has an early schedule; mine is all over the place sometimes). And since most of the ordinary grocery stores and the 7-Eleven types carry them, it's easy to pick up "an Amy" on the way home from work rather than making an extra trip to TJ's.

    Fingers crossed for you to get a job there probably nice perks and an employee discount!

    I don't eat a lot of them, either, which is why I don't mind that they're pricier. They're whole grain, some vegan, healthy ingredients. I'm mostly eating veggies, fruits, beans, and some nuts and seeds, but an Amy's meal portion is within the top of the pyramid option for other foods. So when I'm sick to death of salads, or want something warm and satisfying, I go for one of those. Good luck with the job! Try a few of their meals first so you can rave about how much you like them.

    I have never heard of Amy's. For what are they well known? In other words, what's a good starting point?

    If the Wolfgang Puck Organic Hearty Vegetable Soup (best soup ever) isn't available, Amy's is my second choice when I have to stock up on emergency supplies.

    I can find Amy's in the health food / organic parts of any given department (canned soups, frozen dinners, etc.)

    Oh, and if you have a Trader Joe's, some of their soups are made by Amy's, but with the TJ's label -- and at a cheaper price. One that's in my pantry right now is TJ's Organic Tomato Bisque (low sodium) -- the label looks just like Amy's, but with the TJ's name instead.

    I buy Amy's vegetarian entrees in the freezer section of our local supermarket. They are a bit pricey but sometimes I need something quick to make for my vegetarian son. We do have a local Trader Joe's so I will look to see which of their items they carry.

    I have not tried Amy's soups, but I am a fan of the frozen dishes! My vegetarian teen son really likes them and even my non-vegetarian kids like them. I do try to watch the labels though because the regular entrees can be pretty high in fat. Our store carries lighter versions of some of the products. I really like the Cheese Tamale Verde and the Black Bean Tamale Verde. My kiddos like the lasagna the best.

    Am I the only person who puts their can of tuna and their boiled eggs in the 'fridge when it's time to make tuna salad? I start getting the inkling of wanting tuna salad a few days before I actually make it, and I start refrigerating. I have a relative that thought that was soooo strange.
