Listening to these conversations and watching documentaries, the Mudlets became fixated with one particular food stuff that not only was a staple during rationing but was also around in our childhood, although neither Mud or I could say that our memories of it were exactly fond. So what was this food item that intrigued them so much? It was Spam!!!
“I wish we could try it,” the Mudlets said and were delighted when Mud informed them that you could actually still buy Spam and if they really did want to try it (though goodness only knows why) then he would buy them some.
And he did!
And they loved it!
Yes this awful tinned meat, that I had had to endure once a fortnight as a child, was delicious, apparently, and they haven’t wavered in their opinion. Which brings me rather nicely to the title of this post.
“You could use up the last of the green peppers, chop up an onion and chuck in a bit of Spam,” he suggested.
So that’s what I did: Fried off one finely diced green pepper and 1 finely diced small onion in a bit of butter, added finely diced Spam (about 1/2 of a tin), added 5 beaten eggs, seasoned and voila!
Spamish Omelette (and there you were thinking it was a typo :D).
