kick back and relax

For those of you out there concerned, be concerned no more. If you often dreaded the fact that you would not be able to finish all of it and then it would just go to waste a solution is now here.....



Spam singles. Yup just enough. I know there are some mighty happy people out there and that makes me happy. Spam away now without a care in the world. "just rip and tear your way to crazy tasty town" (keep in mind that Hormel foods is trying to corner the 'crazy tasty' market...)




Sometimes all the food we eat is a bland color and this iceberg wedge and chiles rellenos satisfied that need.

Let me add some clarity here...I dont like spam, I have tried to eat it at various times in my life and each and every time I just dont like it...I know some people swear by it but if I had to eat it I would just swear at it.

SPAM??!!!! OMG! We ate that when I was little and were happy to get it too!! Spam is poor people food! If I never see it/smell it ever ever again,....it will be too soon.

But everything else looks really good....as usual.

Michelle said...

I haven't had spam in years! I hear the Hawaiians love it. They serve it several ways at a local restaurant here. Strange!

The other pic's look good though.

Anette said...

Slip said...

Ground up pig ears,lips,and snouts in a lovely hog fat aspic. Can't beat it or eat it for that matter!

I have fond memories of fried spam and velveeta sandwiches. On white bread.

Hawaiians are cuckoo for the stuff :)

I have to admit I was a bit worried when I first started reading your post. For someone with such a rich flavour base in everything you do, I was asking myself does he really like spam?? But hey each to his own!!! Glad to read you were taking the piss!!!

I just realised you might not know what I just said - taking the piss is a Aussie slang for having a joke!!!

meg and her BFF have been passing back the same can of spam at their B-days every year for the last 5 years, started as a joke now it's tradition. This last year it came back to Meg with a Spam cookbook from Hawaii.

Anette said...

Ok, I've googled it! Never read between the lines about snouts, lips and ears though! I found a spam.com... Was it for real? looked a bit Pleasentville to me!

doggybloggy said...

Deb: thats a funny tradition - it blows away regifting fruitcake any day

anette: I went to spam.com...wow they sure make it seem like pleasantville dont they....tough call on this you might have to see if you can get a can and try it for yourself...or better yet a 'single'..

Dragonfly Dreaming said...

Spam. Tried it once and retched. The stuff is horrid!

Tanya Kristine said...

NOW you're talking..m.e love spam.

Bina said...

People in Hawaii LOVE THEIR FREAKING SPAM! I can't eat it. I think it's because I let it sitting out one day, (when I lived in Hawaii and my husband didn't eat it all) and the next morning it had maggots on it.

Nope, can't even look at it now.

Spin said...

Spam and rice is big in Hawaii. My ex says he got to eat lots of the growing up over there.

doggybloggy said...

C: its hideous...

TK: natch - you like this - the contrarian that you are - vegan - hah! dont get me started.

bina: they thrive on it for some 'reason' I think it goes back to pearl harbor days...

spin: my dad liked spam - not me!

Joy said...

I'd heard that about Hawaiians and wasn't sure it was true. Apparently they Spamalot. (sorry)

I grew up on spam and loved it as a kid, don't know why I abandoned it, maybe because we ate too much of it when I was little! :D
