Monday Morning Question


Do you like SPAM?  If yes, then could you share your favorite SPAM recipe with us?


My answer:  No, I don't like it.  Once I thought I would give it one more chance.  So I made Country Fried SPAM, LOL.  With gravy!  It only made it worse!  How about you?  Krissy :)

My answer is as follows; If there was nothing to eat anywhere in the whole wide world, I could eat it as long as it was fried or at least heated up.  Remember back in the fall of 1999 when everybody thought chaos would happen all over the world as the calendar turned over to 2000?  I must admit I had three or four cans of Spam in my survival box of food.  As soon as January 1, 2000 dawned and we were all ok, I promptly donated them to a local food bank.   My mom loved to tell the story about my dad and his hatred of Spam.  Now my dad would eat anything mom set in front of him, except Spam, canned fruit cocktail and lima beans.  Apparently, when he was overseas during WWII he had to eat a lot of those three food items.  Mom claimed he actually forbid her to buy Spam, canned fruit cocktail and if she got those frozen mixed vegetables and there were lima beans in the package, we were all allowed to push them aside on our plate.

Ok, that's my Spam answer.          Linda

great story about your parents. I think that happens with a lot of food we get stuck eating; we definitely develop an adversion to it

LOL, I put everything in my survival box, just about, but NO SPAM, LOL.  I'd rather pack those little Vienna Sausages or some tuna, LOL.

I had an AUnt who used to fry it up for breakfast occasionally. I think she was just punishing us for keeping her awake all night when I stayed over. LOL  I'm not a spam fan myself.

LOL, I'm with you on the Spam issue.  My mom used to fry it and make sandwiches.  It makes me gag to think of eating it now.  I'm with your Dad on the Lima Beans, too.  Hate 'em.
I never had my kids try Spam - darn!  I failed them.  They will never know what it is, much less if they like it or not.  LOL
