Where’s The Beef?


pot pie    Food really has changed over the years. I know I am getting old when I start reminiscing about how a product used to look or taste or worse yet, how cheap it used to be to purchase. Today, I was looking for some lunch. I found a pot pie up in the freezer. I was amazed when it had microwave instructions on it. Remember when the only way to cook a pot pie was in the oven and it took at least an hour? Nope, microwave for 5 minutes and 30 seconds. I was a little skeptical but excited that I could eat sometime today. The excitement ended when I saw the end results. It was burnt on the outside, cold in the middle and the peas were still frozen. I thought alright, I’ll try to make the best of it. I scraped it out onto a plate. Not only was it not cooked properly, there was hardly anything there. We are talking 5 bites at best. There were exactly 2 pieces of wanna be beef. What has happened Swanson’s?? That pile of poop was no good. I would rather have a mud pie than another one of those pot pies. Things just aren’t what they used to be. Maybe I was just a kid and it seemed much better than it really was. But, if you give me back the pot pie that used to be, I promise I will wait the hour for it to cook in the oven…

  1. I find myself reminiscing as well. And sometimes complaining. Btw, I noticed your entire post is shown in the email body. This allows readers to read your post without having to visit your site. It is costing you views. May want to change that in settings so email shows a snippet then says click to read more. Just a suggestion…
