What costs more: TV dinner or Foie Gras?

Did you know that you pay $300 a pound for veggies in frozen dinners? Turns out that every time you buy a frozen dinner - with the standard meat, vegetables, and dessert - you pony up about $300 a pound just for those peas and tiny carrots. Take a closer look at the portions to see where your money's spent: A typical frozen dinner might cost about $4, but it weighs in at a scant 9 ounces total. At that rate, you'd get a better deal buying fois gras. A pound of that high-end treat will set you back a mere $150.
