Thoughts For Thursday?

no clue what "Unicorn Meat" is... and I am thinking its not real... but its an interesting picture.




I've seen this on other blogs... and I can't remember if its "Thoughts FOR Thursday" or "Thoughtful Thursday."

I'm going with "Thoughts FOR Thursday."

Today, I have an incredibly deep, insightful, thought provoking question for you all. And I'd appreciate honest answers...

DOES MEAT IN A CAN FREAK YOU OUT?

Really, this is my question; My group of girlfriends and I have been chatting a lot about preservatives, additives, steroids, etc. And there is something that kind of makes me want to puke, when I think that a can of spaghetti-os (with meatballs) does not expire for 5 years. What the heck are they pumping into those meatballs to keep them "good?"


Anyways, don't get me wrong- I do feed my kids a can of chef boyardee when we're out of fresh turkey or whatever...

What a thoughtful thought, huh?

Leave me your brain picked answers... I'm dying to know (for real though- I really do want to know your thoughts on canned meat :)


PS- My kids were up at 5:30- that would be 5:30 AM- this morning. Ryan was still here, getting ready for work and I mumbled something about turning the oven on so I could make cinnamon rolls. Let me tell you, the entire dish of rolls is gone. My kids (aged 3 and 1) ate the entire thing- holy moly... they do eat. :)

Yes meat in a can. Disgusting! Is the unicorn meat sparkling? Or is that just the bad view from my phone? Cause really, I'd expect unicorn meat to sparkle, right?
You're making me think though bc we eat salmon in the pouch ....I am not sure if I've ever read the exp date or the ingredients....which is scaring me a little bit right now!

Yes, canned meat grosses me out. I personally do not but it for my kids or myself (although Ty eats tuna often so I do buy that for him). I've really been trying hard to cook healthy for us and making A LOT more from scratch (pizza crusts, rolls, pie crusts, etc) and freezing it that way it's more convenient for me and I don't have to buy boxed or processed suff.
