My concession to the possibility that the uber-bears are right

I just went to the grocery store and bought 60 cans of Campbell's Chunky soup, as it was on-sale for $1.25/can.

Now I just need to get that shotgun and stock up on gasoline.

Went to the grocery store and bought ingredients for a big pot of spaghetti. What will I do when that runs out? Shop again? Eat out?

Hamlet, is there a chicken in every one of those chunky cans?

I hope not, if it's beef.

I miss those soups, esp. Chicken w/Mushroom and the Chicken Corn Chowder. Nice to have the convenience.

Couldn't find oreccheitte around here so I just grabbed a thicker shelled noodle instead. Super easy to make and very tasty.

I suspect if you eat 60 cans of Campbells Chunky soup you aren't going to need to buy gas.
