I love Spam. Thanks, I was always going to look up if it was gluten free!

I slice it, fry it in butter, sprinkle it with a little brown sugar and top with pineapple. Think we'll have spam this week.

I am embarassed to admit, but I kinda like it too, although I don't eat it due to sodium and weight issues . . . but wow, for others, what an easy thing to pack for travel or pick up while on the road. As memory serves, a lot of gas stations carry Spam in the grocery section . . . or at least they used to carry it. This will probably help a lot of folks cope.

Many years ago, there was a snow emergency here in PA, and we could not leave our homes. As it worked out, I was visiting a friend at her parent's house, and her parents were restaurant warriors, preferring never to cook if they could avoid it. After two days, we ate through the small amount of food in the house, and we were left with Spam. It was purchased sometime in the last decade, though no one could remember when. We cut it up, fried it, and that was dinner. Thank God they opened up the roads the next day. Still, Spam got us through, and I don't remember it tasting that bad, either!

My mom used to slice it and fry it in butter and we would eat it on toast. For some reason that sounds good. Now if I could find some gluten free bread to toast that tasted good. On a side note Underwood Deviled ham spread is gluten free too. Here is a link to B&G Foods, Inc. products that are gluten free including the deviled ham.

Spam is absolutely disgusting when you examine it's contents but it is still the food of the Gods. Spam and gluten free beer are proof that God exists and that he wants us to be happy.

All this Spam talk (the edible kind :D ) really brings back memories. My dad used to fry it up with eggs on the weekend once in a while.

What is funny is that the same folks that turn their nose up at SPAM, eat canned soups, chili, tuna, prepared frozen and box meals, all full of chemicals, preservatives and mystery ingredients. Not to mention Fast Food....

I say always keep a Can o' Spam in the cabinet for emergency's along with a big block of Velveeta Cheese (America's favorite processed cheese "food"). The Pair makes a helluva Party Platter for those impromptu guests during the holidays. Always keep those little toothpicks with the curly plastic cellophane to decorate it up!

FYI Spam is available in a low sodium version....

"Canned soups, chili, tuna" . . . well said!

"little toothpicks with the curly plastic cellophane" . . . of course, dahlink! What else would even come close to making the perfect snack statement?

Oh my gosh, in addition to Spam, Velveeta is gluten free, too? ALL VARIATIES? (Oh please tell me yes!) Talk about processed-food-heaven!

Hold onto my hips, here I come. Whooo-hooo!

The next time I need a guilty pleasure, I sure know where I'm going. :)

PS: May I please have some fries with that?

We can laugh all we want.

But, if you put Velveeta Dips (keep them hot) out a party, especially a football party, It is always the first to go. Highbrow Types always ask "what is your recipe"? :D

Yes!

AND if you tell them that your "secret recipe" is made from some incredibly expensive, exclusive cheese, then they start to salivate . . . and if, after that, you just keep your mouth shut just long enough, they throw money at you for the recipe.

Catch it and run for the goal line!

As I've always said, if peanut butter cost $100 an ounce, everyone would know it is the greatest food in the world.

Don't forget about those bisquick, sausage and cheese hors d' oeuvres -----In Louisiana they are called "Coon Balls"

Someone needs to come up with a gluten-free version of those

Those are so-o-o-o good! A friend of mine in my hometown used to make them at every get-together. :D We just called them sausage balls.

Put those sausage balls out on your best silver platter, and use your finest linen napkins and wait til they ask "What ARE these?"

Pause, and say "Coon Balls". They will look at you with a blank stare, then add "You know, Racoon Balls"... You won't remember when you had such a good time. Of course, they have already eaten about 7 or 8 of them.
