Deborah, Good to find you here too. I know you from craft lists.
About spam, we used to eat it too because we were on government assistance and spam was one of the things that we got from them each month, that and a pound or two block of cheddar cheese. I ate a good deal of both and was glad for it when we had nothing else. Also cornmeal or some sort of cereal grain. That was a long time before food stamps. It brings back memories.

Well, when I was a kid, we had Spam all the time.  We opened the can, put mustard or mayo and maybe a tomato on it in a sandwich.  To us, then, it wasn't bad.  I like bologna better, but I sure won't turn Spam down.  My husband, on the other hand, hates it!  I haven't had any in years; maybe I'll get a can.

The spam with pineapple sounds good, too.

Same for Treat.  <g<

Two thinly cut pieces, cubed, isn't going to hurt you.

Fry the two pieces of spam, then cube them and mix them in with your Mac 'N Cheese.

Spam can also go with rice, in sandwiches, or as a garnish for Ramen.
Again, no more than two pieces at a stretch.

If you're doing the rice thing, you can fry it, or top with pineapple slices and bake at 350 for I think 30 mins.

Fry it, then stir fry with veggies and cooked Ramen noodles, season with a few pinches of the Ramen packet. (I like the chop suey mix--cabbage and bean sprouts and carrots, that they carry in the produce section.)

My favorite is fried, cubed, and mixed with mushrooms and cheese in an
omelet--2 eggs. Of course, with rice. White rice. Haven't quite made the transition to healthy. Can you tell?

Whatever you do, cook the thing. Don't eat it straight out of the can.
Ick. Tried it that way as a kid, just for kicks. ICK!!!

Spam ... a staple in HI, especially in Asian households. *lol; I'm from there, and am Filipino, so can, and often do,  make fun of myself and my neighbors*

More Later,
Dani

More Later,
