Just in Case I Meet a Family with a Car Full of Nachos

Cans of CheeseThis is the ballast in my minivan--two leftover cans of "cheese" sauce that I've been carrying for months, not knowing what to do with them. At least I know if we're ever stranded somewhere in a snow storm we won't have to resort to cannibalism.

Oh, I wouldn't dare photograph my trunk! I think there are things growing in there... probably would go great with your nacho cheese...

FOOD! That's the rarest thing you can find in my car. Hehe... But you'll see a few pairs of shoes (because I'll never know where I'll asked to cover news) teeheehee.. (=

Now I don't feel so bad about the things I've left in my car.

Joyful Days said...

I wish those were in the back of my trunk. I miss 7-11 nachos with jalepenos since I moved to Wisconsin. Of course it could be the pregnancy talking and I might actually hate nachos.

grace said...

Were they there all summer? I hope they are still OK because it's too sad if they are not.

Robin said...

Ahhh, but do you have a can opener...

Glennia said...

Love the caption of this post. That's some serious cheese sauce you have there.

Nap Warden said...

Where's the can opener!!!?

Sue said...

Ewwww! Can you imagine what they might be like inside??? Hehehe I think I'm going to clean out our cupboards now... lol! Happy WW

Babystepper said...

There are few things worse than canned nacho sauce. I still have dreams from my high school concession stand days. Canned nacho sauce is not really made of edible products, I don't think. You're probably better with sticking to cannibalism. You know, just a toe or foot maybe.

Michelle said...

Your caption for this post made me laugh so hard. I can't help but picture your family stopping to picnic somewhere someday, when a family sitting next to you declares that someone forgot to pack the cheese sauce for the nachos, and you swooping in to save the day, developing life-long friendships through the whole "ordeal." Stranger things have happened, you know.

I'm sure your van full of nachos is out there somewhere, travelling the highways and biways, with not an inkling that they are destined to meet up with you. You just need to keep your eyes open watching for them.

Now what I really want to do is buy a bunch of nachos, take a photo of them in the trunk of our car, and then caption it "Just in case I meet a family with a car full of cheese sauce!"

Callista said...

Ewwww! I will NEVER eat canned cheese, that's just gross. I don't like nachos and cheese like you get at the fair or the corner store. I only eat good nachos with real cheese, preferably a dip too.

Mine's here.

Jeremy said...

Tin foil, a can of spam, and a 90 degree day and you too can have a dash board dinner :-)

Happy ww and stop by and visit, but expect no pictures from my trunk because I am afraid of what lurks there!

Heffalump said...

Sounds like you need a big pot of macaroni!

So Lost said...

Hope those don't explode!!

Mama's Moon said...

'Ballast', that's a good word for what lurks in the trunk. I've got quite an assortment of 'ballast' in my own. Thanks for reminding me that I need to clean the van out this weekend!

Angela Klocke said...

LOL -- well, I guess you just never know!

Crystal said...

Bahahaha.
i don't know why this just tickled my funny bone so much.
i guess because I can totally see myself driving around cans of cheese for a couple months too.

chelle said...

hahaha I want to totally be there when you find the Nacho family!

PeggyM said...

LOL and that doesn't happen to me everyday! Did you see the post on be a good dad about burping heineys?

I work in the kitchen in the school and we served nacho supreme today. We used about 6 of those cans and then I got to wahs the pan, spoons and all of those trays. Just what I wanted to see when I logged on tonight. LOL!
Love the title!

Mrs Mecomber said...

How are you going to get the cans open if you are stranded? The lug wrench?
