Day 17 – We are in a small rural county in Michigan. Even here the Coronavirus has reached us. We are not like other areas with huge numbers of people infected (well at least identified as infected) or dying from it. But, we are not as immune as we think we are. We live near a main street and the traffic has abated some but not as much as I thought it would have by now. Our little county with about 150,000 people has 22 people that have tested positive. If you don’t know someone now who has it or has had it you will.
When we were at the store the other day I noticed that ALL the canned meats were gone. Tuna, chicken, Vienna sausages, and even Spam were out. I had a hard time finding two cans to make this recipe. I first made this several years ago when I found two cans of Spam hanging around my pantry that I didn’t even remember buying. I figured with everyone buying all the Spam now would be a good time to revisit this recipe.
This is super simple to make and is ready in about 30 minutes. It has a nice flavor and my whole family was actually surprised at how much they liked it. The Spam texture is soft so if you would like it a bit more firm I suggest frying it a bit first in a bit of butter to get a better texture. But, made just as the recipe calls for it is fine too.
Serve this with a green salad and a green vegetable and your meal is ready.
