Thank you, Alison and ladies, but Spam needs no ingredients, no embellishing, no fancy dish names, and no artificial manipulation.

Would God be better if he wore fancy clothes or jewelry? No, He is God. Spam is Spam! It stands alone, proud, naked and inviting...who could ask for anything more?????????

I would guess naked Spam is a whole lot better than naked Tofu.

Someone go look at their spam can and tell me what the fat, carbs and calories are?

And I recently learned that Spam is one of Hawaii's most popular items. I'll check that out in a few days.

Sunshine,

When I was in Oahu, Spam was on the menu at McDonald's.  Now that was some time ago, but still .... kinda like our McKinley Mac up here.

Hey Sunshiny One,

I am sorry that it has taken me so long to respond.

What is Pilot Bread?

Hmmm, it is a round, hard, large, thin biscuit that many people hate.  They just don't know what is good.  It is unsalted and is loved by commercial fishermen, Alaskan Natives and me!  It's great with Spam or Velveeta Cheese or Peanut Butter or just butter or plain in soup .. or .. the possibilities are endless.  They are even good plain (though the crumbs can choke - but a coughing fit is part of the Pilot Bread experience).

Love you almost as much as I love Pilot Bread,




Ali
