Imagine, you are a housewife living in the late 1800s. Life can be difficult what with cooking, cleaning, mending and caring for your husband and children. You have so little time to yourself. Anything which can save a little time is welcome, and although your children were a little unsure about the premade potted meat you use for their lunches at first, they have grown to love it. Now that you no longer have to make it yourself it saves so much time!
