Score!

Shootin' Buddy claims to have actually found a source for Patio®-brand frozen burritos.

A winner is me!

Also, Fresh Market had restocked the Progresso Manhattan clam chowder. Life is pretty good right now.

OK, give it up. I bet shooty buddy would trade the source for more lasagna. Do you think a deal could be arranged?

Manhattan clam chowder?

That's just wrong....

I was at the Publix yesterday, and saw them. I almost bought some, but bought beer instead.

wv- butoid: what i'm afraid one of those burritos would give me.

I think the Manhattan style's got tomato base instead of cream.

Steve Skubinna said...

Manhattan style? Well, whatever floats your boat.

In the Great Northwest, we generally eschew such misleading faux geographical designators and call the two variants "white" and "red" clam chowder. Some claim Ivar's makes the best white chowder, but my money is on Duke's. And if you do not live up there, you have my pity.

Incidentally, the Costco nearest my house ("near" being a relative term in Rural America) usually carries the Patio burritos in bags of, oh, dunno, one gross or something typically Costconian.

My biggest concern about going to Camp Perry for a couple weeks is that you can't get decent salsa north of I-20.

Wait, you already had Progresso Manhattan Clam Chowder?

I should have brought the burritos that you like.

"Wait, you already had Progresso Manhattan Clam Chowder?"

Just the one can. I found it after you'd already struck paydirt.

I am not getting my hopes up, because it didn't scan at the register, so it may have gotten shelved by accident.

You're better than this, Tamara. You eat at Taste, where all the sammiches (except the "Erin") look damned good.

Yarr. Genius. Manhattan Clam Chowdah the best tasting 'diet' food, evah.

Tam said...

Matt,

Although I haven't yet tried it, the "Erin" intrigues me, for I am an asparagus fiend.

I think I've only done lunch there twice; it's usually a breakfast destination for us...

(Taste, Zest, Cafe Patachou/Petite Chou, and the soon-to-be-opened Good Morning Mama: Broad Ripple is an embarrassment of riches for gourmet breakfast chow...)

Matt G: are you impugning the goodness of Manhattan style clam chowder? Tsk, sir, tsk.

Bless you.

I thought I was the only one in the gun blogosphere who liked Manhattan-style clam chowder. My faith in humanity has been restored.

Progresso's version is sold in my nearby stores. Looks like another box enroute...

Ross said...

Manhattan clam chowder??? Ick.

Tam, if you ever make it to the frozen Northeast, you'll have to try the real stuff. Hint: there isn't a tomato anywhere near it.

One of the few good things about living in MA is that you can get GOOD chowdah.

I'm not sure where you can get good gaviros, though (word verification). Sounds like a Greek dish of some sort.

I don't mind white chowder, but I prefer the tomato-based kind.
