In today's strip, John somehow magically ruins Elly's life by serving his kids TV dinners instead of reheating her lovely casseroles and not at all crimes against gastronomy and nature.

(Strip Number 833, Original Publication Date, 16 April 1985)

Panel 1: Michael tells Elly that while she was away Daddy taught them how to cook.

Panel 2: Elizabeth says it was easy and they had peas an'tatoes an'chicken and everything.

Panel 3: Elly is amazed that he showed them how to cook those things.

Panel 4: When Michael pulls out a TV dinner and tells her "Yeah! Just put one of these in the oven an'turn it up to 450°!," Elly rolls her eyes in disgust.

Summary: This is because Hungryman dinners are far too 'impersonal' to be allowed; after all, how can she show her love for her family if she can't trick them into eating things they hate?
