Well, I thought I had seen it all and yet yesterday I was served the following:

Vegetable Soup
two cans green giant string beans
two cans green giant corn
two cans hunt's diced tomatoes
one large can Spicy V8 juice

heat until warm in a soup pan

anyone think they can top that with something a live human actually served to guests?

I used to be a HUGE fan of Hamburger Helper dinners. I cooked them all them time, but more so when my kids were younger. What's not to like? They were quick, convenient, only required one pound of hamburger meat, and they were good. It wasn't until I started reading labels that I learned they might be good, but they're not good for you. Or at least they weren't for me. Too much sodium.

The label says that the box contains ABOUT 5 one-cup servings. Each of those servings contains 740mg of sodium. Holy cow! A day's sodium intake is 2,300mg and if you've had cardiac trouble, that's reduced to 1,500mg or thereabouts. Even if you eat one and a half cups of the cooked product, that's up to 1480mg!

Palenaka, I can't even imagine a meal of hamburger helper, canned corn (more sodium) and mushroom soup. Hope you don't get invited over often....

Once I had a can of vegetable soup in my pantry with a recipe on the side for a "quick clam chowder." Pretty much just canned vegetable soup plus a can of clams. Gross!!

A friend of mine cooked raw chicken in the microwave. Butt naked raw chicken. No soup, no seasoning, nothing.

Another time she cooked spaghetti with tomato paste - minus the water.

I never let her cook for me again.

/sorry to threadjack...I know this was a soup thread, but I couldn't help sharing
