Critique: Schwan's Roasted Turkey Meal!

Commercial picture
For some time, I've wanted to give Schwan's Home Delivery a try. I finally had a chance to order a batch of food including one Roasted Turkey meal a TV dinner if you will. The cost was $4.50 for a 230 calorie 12 oz. meal. This is one of their LiveSmart® meals with 'slow roasted turkey medallions in our made-from-scratch turkey gravy. On the side is a medley of lightly seasoned, Grade A vegetables, flash-frozen at the peak of freshness for ultimate nutritional value and fresh taste; broccoli florets, julienne carrots and cauliflower florets.'
The real deal!

'OK', I thought, 'this might be interesting!'

The directions were similar to those I've seen before on offerings by Healthy Choice. The microwave instructions were as follows:

Remove tray from outer carton. Cut slit in film to vent.
  1. Cook on HIGH (100% power) 4 minutes.
  2. Carefully pull back film and stir. Replace film.
  3. Continue to cook on HIGH (100% power) an additional 2 to 2 1/2 minutes.
  4. Let stand for 1 minute.
Seemed simple enough. I did as instructed and very quickly had a meal to sit down with and enjoy.

Score: OK, I stand in awe! The veggies were perfectly al dente! The turkey flavorful, juicy and complimented by the gravy to an extend I gave this meal a 9.5 out of 10! Just short of perfect!
