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!
