    The meat was introduced by the Hormel company this date in 1937.

    Great stuff, IMHO.

    I'd love to see an enterprising meat executive authorize the creation of a new kielbasa made with Spam.

    Happy birthday, Spam! Hawaii's beloved canned meat turns 80

    I wont call it a favorite but it like vienna sausage fed me on many a late night fishing trip.
    All ya needed was some crackers and if your lucky some cheese and mustard.
    Well beer was a necessity but that goes without saying.

    I love the way it tastes, but I hate the fat content. *sigh* I probably bought 20 cans of it last year alone. You can cut it up for an omelette, cut it up for beanie weinie macaranie (chili w/beans, cut up junkfood meat, a package of macaroni, cooked, all stirred up together and heated in the microwave after placing it in assorted microwave proof cup containers for future meals). I cooked for 6 back when, now there's just me, so I just try to be sure some of everything gets put in individual containers in the freezer these days and try to remember to cook up a package of brussels sprouts or other cruciferous vegetable to go along with it. For some reason, when you get older it's important to make sure you get enough calcium to prevent bone loss, enough vitamin A and D for what ails ya, and Centrum for 50+ years. They even make vitamins that zero in on elder women issues and elder men issues in separate containers. Vitamins can save you a lot of grief, but won't give you enough calcium, because you need calcium in increments 4 times a day or your bones are toast. And that comes from reading nutritional manual updates ad nauseum. What you don't know about nutrition can hurt you. Just sayin'. Oh, yeah, and if you have bad dental habits, throw it all out the door. Brushing twice a day, before and after the day, preferably, can add about 15 years to your life. People don't know that who didn't have the smartest health studies professor who ever lived. *sigh*

    I liked it when it was inexpensive canned meat you could store in your pantry for convenience. Now, it's so costly that you can obtain real cans of ham in small sizes for storage for far less money.

    Spam only has 7 grams of fat per ounce

    That's not too bad

    I Just Came In Here To Start A Thread About Trying SPAM

    Because Of The Military, And WWII
    SPAM Is Known All Over The Pacific
    Travel Shows Say You're Not Hawaiian If You're Not Eating SPAM
    The Dishes Look Great
    Except For .... SPAM

    When I Was A Kid
    SPAM Was The Mystery Meat From Mars
    Thought It Was Awful, Mom Was Punishing Us For Living

    Back In The 80's Hormel Changed The Cuts
    And Most Important...The Seasoning Recipe
    I Haven't Tried It
    But They Run Commercials All The Time
    So, I'm Going To Take The Plunge This Weekend
    All The Recipes Say You Can Substitute Bologna, If You Want
    So Even Though I Have Bologna
    I'll Buy SPAM, Fish And Oyster Sauce
    And Sesame Oil (Which Tastes Like Pork Rinds To Me)
    Whip Up A Portion Of Fried Rice, And Try SPAM

    I Hope It's Not A Waste Of Fried Rice

    BTW....
    I Have Bologna On Hand
    Because I Saw Some BB-Q Sandwich
    That Had Grilled And Sauced Bologna
    Piled High With Coleslaw, Pickle, Lettuce And Tomato
    Big Fat Wonderful Bun
    I'll Try That This Weekend Too

    IRL
    I Look Similar To The Professor In Back To The Future
    So This All Works
