RE: Grits

When I was in Hawaii about 8 years ago I often saw spam "plate lunch" at the country stores even saw spam sushi on a chalk board menu I didn't order it though.
I have always liked it pan fried, same for bologna.
One of my old fishing buddies never made a trip with out at least one can of Vienna sausages, he would pop the top, drink the juice (brine) with the bits of fat floating in it from the can, then eat the sausages, the poor man died from heart failure, but at 83.

RE: Grits

I must say that I'm getting a real kick out of this Spam subject. (Gives you a pretty good idea as to how my life is going, huh?) I went to the Spam Home site and cannot believe the various recipes they've listed. I'll try some of them on the boat when my wife's not with me.

Grits

God, all these bring back some memories. Diced Spam and scrambled eggs, Spam and egg sandwiches on an english muffin, bean dip made from canned refried beans, canned beef and a jar of jalapenos... and my first taste of grits in USAF boot camp in TX.

Ooohhh.... and fried ring bologna sandwiches with red onion and mayo.* To die for.

I tried deep fried Spam at the OC fair last year... didn't much care for it

RE: Grits

This is true. Growing up we ate grits about 8 days a week for breakfast. These days we wife prefers to stRt me with a bowl of oatmeal. But I still like the grits

Thanks RTF. Now I know. Tinned, pulverised ham, in effect. I think we have it under another name.

RE: Grits

You know they make Spam in those single serving packets for that emergency fix...
I won a Spam cookoff a couple of years ago with some Spam egg rolls. Spam and brie inside, coated in coconut and served with a fresh mango-pineapple dipping sauce.

RE: Grits

Damn Keith... yer just down the road from me.* We should get together for a toddy whilst yer in town.

Short of getting together, there's a killer Mexican restaurant in Irvine called Javier's.* It's in the Irvine Spectrum.* Never had a bad meal there, and the margaritas are excellent!* If you've a chance, you should give it a try.

There's also a PF Chang's in the Spectrum.* Good food, too.... try their Hot 'n Sour Soup and Mongolian Shrimp.* The shrimp is not on the menu, but order it anyway... they'll consider you a PF's afficianado and you'll thoroughly enjoy the meal.
