Re: Most calories in a standard can: Roast Beef Hash

Best food in a can EVER! If I had some right not it would be in a frying pan. Eggs are the best with it and I cook it down until it is all crispy. I usually dont get it when I am at a resteraunt because they always just brown the outside. Roast beef or corned it doesn't matter.

Over the years we have kept some of our oldests clothes for the younger ones but most of that has been worn again and was given away when too smal...

I think there would be enough ammo "Laying" around in the streets. If you find a nickel on the street do you keep it or put an ad in the newspaper?
