This week we had a ‘canned good apocalypse pot luck’. The guidelines were that guests we asked to bring any combination of canned foods to help make a meal (or maybe just a mess). While they could mix canned goods together the only “extra” ingredient allowed is water. Cooking via stovetop, oven or microwave was encouraged ’cause raw canned goods are kind of nasty. Or they could cook their tasty canned good offering at home and bring it along pot-luck style.
