In this time of #shelteringathome, many of us have caught up on movies, TV shows and as you can see, all of the books we’ve neglected…and some of us have cooked as well!
“What The Friday!?!?!?!” Just How Big Are Those Cans?!?!?!
I will answer that question, but first, you need to know how it happened.
Yes, this week’s edition of “What The Friday!?!?!” is the result of a DISASTROUS on-line ordering mistake I made!
Here’s how it began:
I saw an ad for canned vegetables, including these diced potatoes. Knowing that shopping was going to be a more trying experience when told to stay at home, I decided to see if I could order some online and have them shipped to my home…and I could – so I ordered some canned potatoes, corn and mushrooms.
They are sold in all stores in 14.5 oz cans…
And here is what I got:
Wha-Wha-WHAT The Friday?!?!
When these showed up, I knew immediately there was a problem – like the fact that each can was the SIZE OF MY HEAD:
So here’s what happened: I bought them from an online store – and I ordered canned potatoes, mushroom and corn – as well as diced tomatoes…well, the tomatoes, the ONLY item that wasn’t available, were in 14.5 oz cans on the order….the others were 10.6 ounces…..except they weren’t:
As my Wife was eager to share with friends, I mis-read the order and instead bought ONE HUNDRED SIX ounce cans!
Yes, each can is SIX POUNDS!
So what do you do with six pounds of marinated Mushrooms? Well, the can offered a few ideas:
I decided there was going to have to be a 3-4 day menu creation to make use of the entire can – so I made Turkey Meatballs with Mushroom Sauce, pan-fried mushrooms with garlic and parsley, and of course, this classic:
Tuna Casserole, Anyone?
That’s right, I made a large baking dish of Tuna Casserole, stuffed to the gills with mushrooms, and Cheese as well – and it tasted great!
I will share what I make with the potatoes and corn as well…I won’t waste any of it, and the cans don’t expire for more than 2 years, so I will be OK – and hopefully our quarantine will end soon and I will invite a group over to celebrate with canned veggies!
Now, while my “mega eating” was a BIG MISTAKE, some are actually making BIG MONEY from it!
Dig Into This “Mukbang!”
First of all, I could NOT love this more!
“Mukbang” is a live, online broadcast that has a Host consume large amounts of food while interacting with their audience – and they are hugely popular!
