Another factor in my void of foods is that we didn't have prepared or boxed foods as I was growing up (for instance, I had never had mac and cheese until after college) . In the past couple of months my mother has remarked to me a couple of times how shocked she is there is that much packaged food in the grocery store (she buys it now to send to my brother in Afghanistan).
Unlike most kids in college I always had money because I worked 3 jobs in college. So I never had those cheap foods that most people who went to college get nostalgic for.
So I thought I would compile a bit of a list here and you, the dear reader, can try to talk me into trying one of the items on the list. So here goes:
- Fish sticks
- Hungry Man or other type of frozen meal (excluding those Bertolli pasta things)
- Cup o'Noodles
- Tuna fish, I've had tuna, I'm not sure the stuff in the can is tuna
- Dinty Moore beef stew
- Hamburger Helper
- Any canned vegetables (excluding corn)
If you have a hankerin' for getting me to eat any of the above 8 foods, make your case in the comments.
