TV dinners used to be the thing, right? I remember as a kid I would be so excited when I would get the chance to sit for dinner, in front of the television with a sloppy, soggy mess of food in a plastic tray. The mashed potatoes slopped about their own little protected pot while I'd try so hard to cut the skinny slab of roast beef, slathered in a brownish-grey gravy. The corn, sopping in butter (I hope) dribbled from my fork as I rocked precariously on the edge of the sofa watching TV rather then the disgusting crap delicious dinner my mom lovingly tossed in front of gave my brother and I. We didn't often get to eat them, but I can remember just how big a treat it was; particularly the apple cobbler / crisp / are-you-sure-that's-apple? dessert. I'm only slightly embarrassed to tell you that I am kinda sorta craving one right now. And thanks to Mom-O-Matic and her f*cked up brilliant mind, you can get this gem for someone you know who too loves the frozen televisionie (It's a word. Look it up. Okay don't - I'm messing with ya.) goodness of these dinners.


They know my penchant for retro food stuffs and always deliver. I asked for peas, mashed potatoes and chicken, and they gave it to me in a perfectly crinkled TV dinner tray straight out of the 1950s!


Seriously. Only Lotta. I think she is just about the best shop owner ever. I mean, who else would sell you something like this and keep a straight face? I dare you. Go on and test her. Check out her shop, find something you like, buy it and she'll toss in this beauty  if you mention "Craftastrophe".


It's a sweet potatoes and marshmellow pendant - and all yours! if you mention us when you buy something from her shop! But hurry! It's first come, first serve!!!1!

    It’s like I’ve officially made it now.

    Where’s my badge? Don’t I need a “My craft got jacked on Craftastrophe” button for my site now?

    And I truly only have one tv dinner and one casserole. So you know, come and get it like you’re at the Walmart waiting for the doors to open on Black Friday.

    Mom-O-Matic is the ginchiest! I bought a lime-green Jello necklace from her and I’ve never regretted it. It’s way cool.

    Oh my god I have to upload a photo somewhere to get rid of his horrid purple monster avatars that some blogs have. Is it a WP thing? They remind me of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and that I’m being punished for eating too many blueberries.
