“I serve three meals: frozen, microwave and takeout”

"I serve three meals: frozen, microwave and takeout” is a jocular kitchen line—the three meals are usually breakfast, lunch and dinner— that has been printed on many images. “My wife says ‘I serve three meals frozen, microwave and takeout!’” was posted on Twitter on November 13, 2008.

Regarding Coupling (December 7): I don’t cook; never was an issue. I have a sign hanging in my kitchen that says, “I serve three meals: Frozen, Microwave, Takeout.” My three children, now 26, 24, and 19, are no worse for the wear.
