Well, they've done it, slimed-up the last decent brands of canned hash, "Mary Kitchen" Corned Beef and Roast Beef Hash. So I've had my last can of the stuff and from here on out, I'll have to make it myself if I want any. You can shortcut with deli corned beef, just have 'em slice it thick, but it's not near as quick or easy, for all it is probably lower in Bad Things I Shouldn't Eat. I haven't had great luck with the various frozen and canned potatoes, but I hadn't been motivated to make a really serious try until now, either.
It was a good long run and I shouldn't gripe, but it's just one more bit of a steadily-poorer world, even here in the fattest part of the fat of the land. Rome was a long time falling, too, and at any given point, it was real hard to see the decline.
