For breakfast this AM, I had a scrambled egg burrito with jalapenos, green onions, mushrooms, SPAM chunks, Mexican cheese and to moisten the eggs, I mixed a "bit" of Bailey's Irish Cream in. It was a C.O.
Dad said something like that but you had to eat standing up? think that was becasue we only had one camp chair at the time and he was always in it next to the odd green Coleman Cooler with the metal clamp that seemed to hold ice for four or five days back in the '70s.Camping food has no calories. It’s a known fact!
I learned that when backpacking. And sitting on the ground.Dad said something like that but you has to eat standing up? think that was becasue we only had one camp chair at the time and he was always in it next to the odd green Coleman Cooler with the metal clamp that seemed to hold ice for four or five days back in the '70s.
I remember growing up my Mom would cut it into cube and put it in vegetable soup, Still do this to this day on occasion, definitely a multi use foodI think it was Marie Antoinette that said "Let them eat cake" and they chopped off her head. 225 years later, and I get the same reaction to Spam. Wife won't touch it, kids run from it, and even the roaches scurry around it. I don't get it. When I pop open a can of Spam and that big gelatinous lump falls onto the paper plate still holding the shape of the can, my mouth can't help but water. Its a delicate balance of salt, fat and nitrites that make my taste buds tingle. (My left arm also starts tingling after eating a can for some reason). I think its the perfect food... no refrigeration, indefinite shelf life, and you don't even need a can opener. Even after opening a can, the contents can stay out a long time and are still as good as the day it was congealed at the factory.
All I know is that if eating Spam is wrong, I don't ever want to be right! So, for all the Spam eaters out there...raise your plastic spork in a toast to the world's most perfect food! Did I say toast? Yeah, Spam goes great on that, too!
Yum!!! Thank you, growing up in Hawaii, Spam was a staple dish/ingredientThis showed up in my facebook feed yesterday. I don't know if it has been posted on this thread or not. If it hasn't, enjoy.

Spam is obviously Manly.
Give us your mailing address (or PM me with your mailing address) and I'll see if I can't mail you a small assortment of cans of Spam.You guys made me want to try it. I live on continental Europe , so Spam is not so easy to find, never seen it in the supermarkets. So I go on Amazon and it is 9.50 euro for a can, almost 12 US $/ can . I can get some nice shrimp for this kind of money :)
Anyway, one of the reviews was really great and I quote :

99 Ranch at Lamar and AirPorti had been getting the terriyaki flavored SPAM up until a year or so ago. its also really good if you can find it
on trips i'd fry some up and add it to instant rice with some canned crushed pineapple and that was pretty tasty
i wonder if flavors are regional, or if SPAM has just quit making certain flavors..i've seen the portuguese sausage one a long time ago, but not around here
