    Questions we could google the answers for, but we'd prefer to see what other CM'ers think first.

    Why does Campbell's condense soup? Why condense it at all?

    My assumption is that it saves weight, thus saves on shipping. It would also reduce their water bill. I'm also guessing that there is a certain degree to which you can condense it without causing it to taste funny, or that it becomes 'too much trouble' to reconstitute it, or they'd ship it as a paste-like mass.

    What's the name of that Parker Brothers board game where you move the pieces around the board and can bump opponents pieces and send them back to the start?

    This is what I thought, too, but I don't believe any of their competitors ever did that (dunno for sure). I do know they've been doing it since as least WWII, if not earlier.

    You will need

    2 slices of Stone Milled Dempster's whole wheat bread (surprisingly fresh bread has never made good GCS ime )
    2 Kraft cheese slices OR 3 thick cut slices of aged chedder depending on your mood. I like the creamness of cheese slices myself.
    2-3 tbsp of margarine

    Heat a 10" fry pan to medium heat. Spread margarine on one side of one slice of bread. Place the bread, margarine side down, in the pan. Place the cheese on the bread in the pan. Spread margarine on the other slice of bread. Place the unmargarined side of the bread on the cheese slices. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until the bottom of the bread is golden brown. Flip and repeat. Remove from heat cut diagonally and serve with ketchup, dill pickles and/or bread & butter pickles.
