At a good 2½ hours from the nearest health food market, I'll pass on that.

I make from scratch when it's reasonable, and I take shortcuts when that's reasonable. I don't eat processed and preserved 100%, but I also don't go that far out of my way to avoid it either.

I don't believe that health food and organic food stores are synonymous with "low budget". There is a reason they call it "Whole Paycheck".

Big-name brands have low- and sodium-free options and preservatives are certainly not poisonous. Geez.

Yes, the preservatives are, in some cases, poisonous. Why do you think they kill bacteria. Reading the preservatives list on the label and researching them will tell you otherwise. And I'm just offering a word of caution, not preaching.

We take medications to kill bacteria too. Maybe instead of going to the doctor for a shot or a prescription, just eat a can of Campbell's soup. Mm-mm good!

Umm, people are not bacteria. I have done the research, which is why I said what I did. Salt, sugar and acids like vinegar are preservatives. They're certainly not poisonous, in reasonable amounts.

The "canned creamed soup debate" has gone on for years here and I doubt anyone has ever changed their minds to the other side. The only important constant should be to keep on cooking the way you choose without judgement of others.

Love the cream of mushroom soup, whether in recipes, or as soup, doctored up or not.
Quick thinking Dawg. Great mind. Good catch!

Sounds good. Ever try Soy-rizo? The flavor is pretty good, but doesn't have much texture. I think I'll try this with Hatch's enchilada sauce instead of the soup, and throw in some pepper jack for the cheesy taste.

THANKS!
