Well, I feel sad that you like to brag about being, what appears to be, well off in your retirement? If you are retired.
I too do all of my own cooking and have all the same kind of equipment that you claim to have and seem to be able to use to good purpose. And yes, I am better off than a lot of people that reach retirement, but I don't flaunt it in the face of those less fortunate than me.
I would have to guess that good money has always been available to you in some manner or other, and never had to be concerned about having enough money to pay the rent, electricity, water, or buy food for the next meal.
Rather than wishing that you knew who was eating canned food, you should go down to the Salvation Army kitchen, or one of the other organizations that furnish food for the poor or needy people, and lend a hand in their kitchens, or is this too far below your status, just drop off some money so that the needy can have a hot meal.
Maybe it makes you feel really special to puff yourself up in a public website, but you ought to be ashamed of yourself for posting your nose in the air tale of your well off self esteem.
Just say to yourself, I sure am a lucky person to have all the things that I do have, and hope that I never will have to choose between eating food out of a can or not eating at all.
In Response to Ban the Cans!:
I feel very sad to think that some single person is eating out of cans. I almost always cook for myself - from scratch. Even without a stove I believe I could find an alternative means of cooking: Crockpot (for soups and stews and even some desserts), a toaster oven, for preparing casseroles, broiling meat or fish, roasting veggies, etc.
As it is, I have a well stocked kitchen pantry, a deep freeze, and a full compliment of kitchen appliances and cookery gear.
I often cook up big batches of pasta sauce (with fresh herbs and tomatoes from my own garden) and freeze it. In the winter I make all kinds of soups and stews and also freeze it for later in single-serve portions. When I roast a chicken I serve it in many different ways, spread out over several days.
If you don't have a freezer, it is more of a challenge to do batch cooking; yet, it is possible to eat well every single day without relying on canned foods. (Think of all those BSPs from the cans the food is packed in!!! (Scary)
I wish I knew the person who is eating all those canned meals...I would cook something delicious for her or him to enjoy!
