Oh, the let-down... !!

Post by rattattoo » Wed Feb 11, 2015 5:07 pm

I got all worked up and excited down at the market just a little while ago when I saw these things....
Then I realized that the little silver flag down on the right hand edge of each package actually said,
"Just Add_____[insert your favorite meat here]_____".
It's just soup/sauce in a bag....
Boy oh boy, they sure do print the "just add" a whole lot smaller than they print the "CHICKEN"

I guess it might be OK if you're willing to settle for tuna scampi or corned beef marsala.

Didn't know that Campbells did sauces aswell. I thought they only made diet-soups or something like that :shock:

The fire roasted tomato variety was AMAZING! Made it with 1 1/2 lbs of cubed steak. Haven't seen that variety lately though. Just be careful with these, they are absolutely loaded with sodium!

How is the sodium content? I was thinking of possibilities for a shtf stock-up but a lot of that stuff lasts forever because there's so much sodium and preservatives in it which is ok if you have plenty of water.
