T and son Tony took the kids to the iconic little canned meat mecca. Take a look.....
Yes indeed. The letter that eldest grandson is standing in front of, from Supreme Commander and future President Dwight David Eisenhower, suggests that feeding the Allied troops with Spam played a major role in defeating the Nazis in World War II. Oh and Grandpa Troutbirder likes it too.....;)
We all joke about Spam, but I think it's made an appearance in many folks' lives.ReplyDelete
My mom used to make some pinwheel dinner rolls that featured spam chopped up and rolled in it, and covered with a milk gravy. Ah, memories!
Oh my - SPAM? I remember eating so much Spam and Viena Sausages while in college, that I still can't eat either of them to this day! LOLReplyDelete
I have a friend who grew up in Hawai'i who LOVES spam. Not my first choice of a delectable entree.ReplyDelete
i can't do spam, either. was raised on liverwurst, though (braunschweiger). eek!ReplyDelete
That reminds me of some years ago when my three great-granddaughters were staying with me. I made French toast for breakfast and all I had was a can of Spam to go with it. I sliced it up and fried it for them and they gobbled it up.ReplyDelete
You never fail to tell me things I didn't know! Spam gets a bum rap and quite honestly, I don't think it's that bad, if done right. I've had a heck of a lot worse things than spam.ReplyDelete
Spam...I remember it being in our house when I was younger and I remember refusing to eat it. LOL!ReplyDelete
I like spam fried in a pan with some eggs...Minnesota food:)ReplyDelete
Spam and klik were quite common and considered good food . As kids we loved it. The little museum would be a coll place to go.ReplyDelete
Spam was part of our diet from the time I can remember until my teenage years. My Mom would take it out of that little can, slice it and fry it and we liked it. Or she would grind it up with pickles and onions for a Spam salad thing on sandwiches.ReplyDelete
Most of us quit eating it though once we got out on our own!
I am not a spam lover but I thoroughly enjoyed this post, Trout!ReplyDelete
When I was a young mother, I would fry Spam in a frying pan. I still remember the taste, but I'll bet it's been thirty years. Great shots! :-)ReplyDelete
A real treat when we were kids. I buy it by the case for the food bank, but haven't tried it in a few decades. IA State fair had a cooking category for it.ReplyDelete
Oh it helped another group of warriors -- married college students to survive -- spam at night and pancakes in the morn. No more please -- barbaraReplyDelete
HA HA---never would have thought of that kind of SPAM... All that came to mind was 'spam' on my computer!!!!! ha haReplyDelete
I never liked Spam --but had it as a child... Never quite knew what was IN it!!!!! ha
Looks like a neat place to visit though. I'm sure the kids enjoyed it.
During the war, my Dad worked in Alaska building air fields. He HATED spam.ReplyDelete
Oddly, I probably should live in Hawaii for I really like the stuff- providing it is prepared in the most unhealthy way possible.
This looks like a fun place to visit. I like your granddaughter's pose in the picture with the garb.ReplyDelete
This is so neat!! Spam...who wouldn't have known!ReplyDelete
PS Come on over to my new blog - MelanieKaris.blogspot.com!
I have heard of the spam museum! Can't say as tho I like to eat spam tho. Have fun in Florida! Looking forward to hearing about your adventures there.ReplyDelete
I LOVE Spam, but it is so bad for you! lol I eat it occasionally anyway! lol I didn't even know it garnered a museum.ReplyDelete
I love quirky museums like that. What a treat! Though I think I would pass up the sample tray if it were offered. Still remember that flavor of fried Spam as if it were yesterday...ReplyDelete
Ha! I thought you'd be griping about spam comments. A spam museum full of history is way more fun.ReplyDelete
