Yes, canned Menudo. It terrified us. So, we kind of hemmed and hawed and avoided it, until she sent us a email not only double-dog-daring us to try it, but promising that she’d try it if we did.
Added to that, her sister stopped by our table at AnthroCon, and promised that she’d enforce Ysabet’s end of the agreement.
And she totally heated it on the stove, meaning it probably smelled up the whole kitchen, unlike our microwave-get-it-over-with-asap method.
Ysabet now goes on record as one of the hard core KUEC fans. I, for one, applaud her fortitude in the face of adversity.
And the good news is none of us ever have to eat canned menudo again.
(That being said, I’ll give it a try again if someone has made it fresh…)
