Hey, I am a master chef with SPAM! When my Tom was in law school, we survived on Spam and it is delicious :-) Fry it, you'll like it! Let us know if the girls went for the Spam.
Oh, we are back from our outing to Jerome and great lunch. Beautiful day up there.
Daddy Shortbread beat us to the punch. We were planning to introduce him to Spam (after learning of his interest in this delicacy)when he visits in December. Still, he may be interested in trying Lite Spam Arnold-Style while he's here... fried then smothered in a mixture of mustard and brown sugar. YUM!! Actually, that gives me an idea for Christmas Eve dinner this year.
Let's just say that I'm a lot more likely to get a full body tattoo than I am to try Spam. Have you read the ingredient list, people?! They lost me at "mechanically separated chicken." I don't even WANT to know what that is. Seriously. Don't tell me.
Hmm. I need to make reservations for Christmas Eve dinner at a nice hotel. Perhaps Pat can recommend a place.Otherwise, I have a slow campaign of sampling the various delicacies in the canned meat aisle. I like sardines a lot. I saw some smoked mackerel or something that caught my eye, too. I'm figuring out what's best to get us through "The Biggest Financial Disaster Since The Great Depression." Canned meat will also keep when the power goes out. I'm wondering what gefiltefish is like?
Fear not; we will not be partaking in Spam Christmas eve. If the parental units choose to serve it, we will find a nice restaurant (perhaps Rue Dumaine) to dine at!
I'm with you, bro.
WOW Nana, have you ever heard such goings on about our wonderful Spam from the young people of the family:-)
While I enjoy SPAM, I draw the line at "Potted Meat Food Product." Anything that has to include the word "food" to assure you it's edible flashes a warning sign to me. In addition to mechanically separated chicken, the ingredients include some real great things: beef tripe, beef hearts, and my two favorites (fanfare, please) partially defatted cooked beef fatty tissue and partially defatted cooked pork fatty tissue. There's a guy I work with who actually enjoys this stuff.
Potted Meat Product is about eight shades of wrong.
I used to eat Potted Meat sanwiches when I was a kid. Potted Meat spread on white bread. I remember them well. Haven't had one in years, but for old time's sake, I'll add that to our Christmas Eve buffet. Those people who want Christmas gifts the next day will be required to taste it. There will also be a loaf of cheap, white bread on the table for those who can't resist eating an entire sandwich.
Oh, yes, because the cheap white bread is really going to tempt me.
So far I have Spam, Potted Meat, Gefiltefish, Sardines, Smoked Mackerel, and cheap white bread on the menu for Christmas Eve dinner. Am I overlooking anything? I wouldn't want anyone to be disappointed. I thought I'd serve baked beans, too. We'll eat them right out of the can for something different. Usually I doctor them up and bake them for a while, but I'll be too busy trying to guess what's in the 100+ packages under the tree with my name on them. As for dessert, in the past I've made homemade cookies and gingerbread, but in keeping with the theme of the meal, I think a box of Vanilla Wafers will suffice, don't you?
Oops! I forgot to add Vienna Sausages to the buffet list. The meal would not be complete without them.
I am printing out the comments to this post in case I ever need to legally prove dementia in my parents or in-laws. I am also realizing what a waste all those meals I've carefully planned and cooked for your visits have been.
Heck, yeah. Just hand us a loaf of cheap white bread, a can of Spam, and a can of baked beans, and we've got a meal!
