Garbage Can

Cast your vote for Garbage Can

An Interesting Name for a Delicious Supper

I know the name of this dish is not so pleasant, but the taste is wonderful. This makes a great sunday night supper for the family. It includes meat and a great variety of scrumptious vegetables. You can cook it outside in a turkey fryer. It is kind of like a low country boil without the seafood and extra helpings of vegetables. Give this scrumptious meal a try. I think Garbage Can may taste better than you think.
