I know it sounds completely unappetizing, but I promise it isn’t. That isn’t even the actual name of the dish although it easily could be. As I’ve mentioned once in a previous entry, canned foods are vital to the average college student’s diet. Fresh and organic ingredients are, at times, unattainable luxuries and due to the high prices of such luxuries, I am often forced to compromise…But, there’s no need to fret for taste is definitely not something I compromise, ever. So, as I was saying, canned foods are the ultimate source of sustenance for the economically challenged. Regardless of its association to poverty and what not, it holds so much personal value. To me, it represents convenience, preservation and ultimately survival in whatever manner you want to take it.
Seriously, people, don’t you just hate it when you go grocery shopping and buy fresh produce only to let it rot because life got in the way? Yes, you know this has happened to you too. It is impossible to avoid the inevitable and yet while we, by nature, are made resilient and able to thrive off adversity, our poor little fridge friends are quite the opposite. As we get stronger and wiser day by day through our incessant experiences and obstacles, whatever you bought and stored in the fridge is only curdling, perishing, withering and wrinkling with time. It breaks my heart every time I neglect to utilize newly purchased produce and am then forced to say farewell..*sigh*
Luckily, that teary parting never occurs with reliable canned goods!
