Anybody else miss the days of boiling their food in a plastic bag, carefully extracting the bag from the scalding pot, frantically searching for scissors to cut open the bag, then dodging the fiery contents as they splashed onto the plate?

On second rhought, maybe we're better off without BBBs.
We used to buy Freezer Queen brand boil in bag turkey. I do miss them but it might be nostalgia.

Anybody tried Beefaroni lately?

I used to punch a hole in the top of the can and prop it on the light bulb in my apartment back in the 1960s.

It was great then. It’s not now.

Then there’s Franco-American spaghetti...
