My First Bite of SPAM


It is true, I never tried SPAM until Labor Day weekend 2015!
We were visiting special friends, who found out from our boys, that no one in our family had tasted SPAM. I now can say, I have eaten SPAM.
It was salty. I liked the Jalapeno over the original.
Yes, can you believe it? A SPAM Museum. Click the above link for more about the SPAM Museum.


SPAM, Monkey Bread and grapes. 

 Have you eaten SPAM? 
Do you like it?
Do you have a favorite way to eat it?

Animal crackers, and cocoa to drink.
That is the finest of suppers, I think.
When I am grown up and can have what I please, I think I shall always insist upon these.

Have a great weekend!

The only spam I ever enjoyed was the play...SPAMALOT! :-) The monkey bread and grapes had to be wonderful...did you eat those after every bite of spam to get the taste out of your mouth??

  5. It's okay. Though I have not had it in years. My dad use to have it when I was a kid. It is better fried. In Hawaii it's popular with eggs.xoxo Su Did you see I gave you the link within my blog for the tomato soup? Have a wonderful weekend.

  6. Hi Carla,
    Happy Saturday. Nope never tried Spam. It probably would be good with something fried like eggs I would imagine.

  8. I never have eaten it but it was a staple of my childhood. As was Potted Meat and Deviled Ham.

    You are brave!

  9. I've never eaten it and, if I'm honest, it is not on my list. But I did enjoy the Christopher Morley poem very much :-)

  11. Haha. I ate Spam when I was a kid. Then I was told that it was made of all the pig parts that couldn't be used for anything else. I stopped eating it. :-)

  16. Carla, do you know that my husband likes SPAM with toasted bread? It's ok with me, but don't like it as much as him. The animal crackers quote is delightful, and I will write that one down. I used to buy animal crackers for my son when he was a little boy. I still love them to this day. : )

    Thank you for the birthday wishes for Jess today.

  17. Yuk - spam! It was forced on me at school... I've been vegetarian for over 25 years and thankfully it's a thing of the past...

    About your dog question: Oscar was our first golden retriever - and now we have two more from the breeder that have been rehomed with us. NOTE - they are field or working golden retrievers, which is why they are smaller and a lot redder in colour. They are wonderful dogs - I wouldn't hesitate to get one!

  18. I've never tried Spam before and am kind of frightened of it. Maybe someday I'll be in a situation where I might try it, but I can't really see myself going into a store to buy it. Haha.

  19. I had Spam when I was really young, and I didn't mind it. I didn't know that it came in flavors... interesting!
    I have driven by the Spam Museum before, but haven't stopped.
    I might just have to buy a can... feeling nostalgic now.

  20. My mom used to make "Spam buns" for us when I was a kid - ground up spam, tomato paste, cheese, seasonings (I think there was oregano in it). I don't remember exactly, but she spread it on hamburger buns and toasted it in the broiler - it was quite tasty! She actually made it for the kids and me a few months ago when we went to visit. Since I'm such a health nut now, I had to roll my eyes - but decided not to worry and enjoy sharing the "blast from the past" with my kids. :)
