Melvin's recipe for broke-ass stew.
Put a bunch of cans of store brand vegetables in a pot. (remove from cans first)
Put in some salt and pepper and some of that stuff in the little bottles that look like seasonings of some kind.
Stirr and smell. If you don't puke continue.
Put in a pack of rammy noodles with little pack of yummy dust. Fish out the plastic wrapper and discard.
Cook over low heat until hunger makes you brave/desperate enough to eat it. Try a small amount and wait 5 minutes. If you don't puke, pass out or convulse, hold nose and consume.
