Spam

I have been so busy working, I haven't had a chance to go the grocery store. Well, I realized we were out of dog food and my pups were hungry. To tide them over until I could get to the store, I went to the cabinet to see what I could find. Bingo, I found 2 cans of Spam. I didn't think I would be eating them anytime too soon.

The dogs were thrilled to get the compressed treat.



I started thinking about the mysterious Spam. I looked it up on the internet and discovered there are tons of recipes for Spam. Who knew? Who cared?

You can make Spam kabobs,



Spam burgers,



Spam and fried rice,



or my favorite, Spam sushi.

                        Is it just me or do some of those sushi look mad?


If you don't like to eat Spam, just watch this clip to see what can happen to you if you don't.



So there you have it. Now you don't need to worry about what to fix for dinner tonight. Tell me what your favorite Spam recipe is.......if you have one.  I hope Google doesn't mark this post as Spam! hahahahaha

    1. If you put BBQ sauce on the sandwich it tastes like a Mcrib.

  2. My now-twentysomething kids used to love it when I would make Spam & Peas... cut up the Spam in little chunks, add a can of peas and zap in the microwave for 1 minute. Instant gourmet dinner -- I still make it for them once in a blue moon for old times sake.

    1. You have to try it at least once. It is unique to say the least.

  6. I will admit to never having tasted Spam. I will take all of your words for how good it tastes. Your Spam presentation was very entertaining, Lori!

  7. I didn't grow up in a Spam household, but I was really surprised when watching some travel channel about Hawaii to see how much of their food revolves around Spam. It's everywhere, even in their local restaurants and stuff. But then, once you think about the location and limitations for meat, it makes total sense.

    And now, we turn to Weird Al who said it best in his ode to Spam:

    Oh, spam (spam)
    Ham and pork
    Think about nutrition, wonder what's inside it now (oh boy)
    Spam (spam)
    It's the best
    Really makes a darn good sandwhich any way you slice it

  8. Ah that Monty Python was really funny! I lived in England in the late 60's and they really do have menus like that in their cafes. Sausage, egg and chips or sausage egg chips and beans, spam, egg and chips etc. It sure brought back some great memories of my time over there. Thanks for the laugh!

    1. It is interesting that it is so popular in Hawaii. Julie in the comment above suggested it is because it is hard to get meat shipped there.
