365:57 Variety Pack

365:57 Variety PackHeinz 57 Varieties featured large in my childhood. A long time ago and very far away, when a meal might consist of Heinz Tomato Soup with a shared bag of chips. I still love tomato soup with chips in but am far too sensible to treat myself more than once in a blue moon.

Grown-up, sensible me eats home-made soup and home-baked beans. These cans are store-cupboard stand-bys for heating up on a camp stove when the power goes off and I dare not lift the freezer lid to access some ready-made good stuff.

Freshly-made Lentil and Tomato soup today, with home-baked wholemeal seedy bread. Just a tiny part of me wished for a local chip shop and a can opener for that soup.
