Sometimes I feel like.....

A Manwhich of course! Well I did, but no more. I just had one. On a piece of spelt toast. It's all about the shopping in my own pantry, fridg and freezer.

I purchased said can of Manwhich last time I visited a Target store last September and I saw a shelf full of these....

I don't know what came over me but I had to buy it! It must have been the 'One full serving of vegetables' on the label. Fast, easy and healthy! Sounds like a winning combination to me!

It was not! What I ate would've given a coronary to Anthony Bourdain, not for the fat content but for the what's in this crap content!

It was acid, so I added sugar, flat so I added sriraccha, and just where were those veggies??? I added garlic and green peppers, but nothing helped it. It feels like a liter of lava sloshing in my stomach. Yikkes! I need some Tums STAT!

It's safe to say that the leftovers will be transformed in a chili? Mexican lasagna? Don't know yet....

Truth be told when I bought that can I was fulfilling a childhood food fantasy....Manwhich sauce was created in 1969. My parents watched mostly american television and back then we had american commercials, so I saw the Manwhich spot a lot! I knew better than to ask my mom to buy it while on vacation, she would have none of it.

Now I can declare : Been there, done that, bought the t-shirt, had indigestion!  

Next time I eat a sloppy joe, it will be homemade....yes I bet I have all the fixings in that pantry of mine!

P.S: I'm shopping in my closet too!

I tried manwich at someone's house once and it was not good at all! Still until we try it those commercials make it sound wonderful. Sigh...
