I have not contributed enough food related entries to this blog. Everybody likes those. At the other blogs that I visit regularly, listed to the right, there are quite often great entries about food. One of those blogs is devoted entirely to food. Incredible food!
As for me, I have only written about beans and rice in an entry of a couple of months ago, which is referenced immediately below in that other entry about the budget. I have not even come through with the rundown on Mexican cheese that I promised. That is because I still do not know shit about Mexican cheese generally. I got stuck on one variety, Manchego, and that is it. I guess I do purchase some Oaxaca cheese now and again. Oaxaca cheese comes in a coil. Looks like a rattle snake all coiled up.
In any event here is an entry about food.
Is there any food item that does not taste better with a can of cream of mushroom soup poured on top of it or mixed in with it? I suppose there is. Perhaps a desert item or two. I am certain of this though. A lot more food items taste better with it than there are food items that taste better without it.
For example, I used it again today to spruce up my rice. I do not add the half can of water and the half can of milk. If I had wanted rice soup, I would have bought rice soup in the can. Rather, I just dump that glop of concentrate out of the can onto the rice and mix it in. It has more of a casserole consistency then.
I swear you can pour a can of concentrated cream of mushroom soup on damned near anything and improve it. And I have. For example toast two slices of bread and put them side by side on a plate. The pour a glop of concentrated cream of mushroom soup on them. You may not need the whole can. Taste it. And they sell the stuff for a few pesos!
I thought about taking a picture of the can for you and then said, "To hell with it. They have all seen a soup can."
I'll bet when you read the title Crema de Champiñones up there, you thought that this entry might really be something, didn't you?
