Who Would Ever Eat This ‘Christmas Dinner’ in a Can?
Breaking News: Hosting your whole family for the holidays can be a real pain in the arse. OK, everybody knows that, but still.
I've done it a few times over the years and it's never as fun as going somewhere else to enjoy the three F's - Family, Food and Football. Cooking a full holiday meal from scratch can be majorly stressful, so that's why I'd much rather let someone else do it. However, I came across a way to cut corners in preparation for Christmas dinner, and frankly, it's the most questionable thing I've ever seen.
Popsugar.com just introduced us all to the "Christmas Tinner," a full-on holiday meal that comes in a can. Developed by Chris Godfrey, the nine-layer, three-course "festival feast" isn't a joke — it's actually in existence. According to the product's site, it was created for "gamers who can't tear themselves away from their new games and consoles on Christmas Day." Excuse me while I go puke.
For as gross as the concept is, the canned meal really does contain breakfast, lunch, and dinner, although I'm not so sure about the taste of it all. Here's all the layers laid out that come in the can as they occur from top to bottom:
- Scrambled eggs and bacon
- Two mince pies
- Turkey and potatoes
- Bread sauce
- Cranberry sauce
- Brussel's sprouts with stuffing, or broccoli with stuffing
- Roast carrots and parsnips
- Christmas pudding
Yikes. That's bound to start up a fight of epic proportions within your stomach after consumption. I think I'll pass... that is, unless, the in-laws force us to host for the second year in a row. In that case, game on!
