Happy Birthday, Spam!

The holy grail of canned meat turns 70 this year.

OH how funny!! Before they (well becky and hope) became vegetarians, they would eat spam. Haven't had it in oh so many years, but did cook it up as in the article. Fried in a pan!!
Happy birthday Spam.

I'll never forget the day our parents returned from a week-long cruise. They told us they had "discovered" the most wonderful delicacy & wanted to cook it for us.

I was expecting snail or eel something equally as odd.

They came back and cooked Spam & Cheez Whiz! Surprisingly, they're still alive.

I won't forget the first time I saw a Spamsicle. Someone on the rec staff at a youth camp had frozen Spam onto popsicle sticks. The kids had to race to see who could eat one the fastest. Yuk!

Spam's the kind of "food" that if I must eat it, I would eat it fast. Not, slowly licking it off a stick. Kind of like liver or gooey okra.
