I had to go to Sam's Club tonight and get a new member card
cause the magnetic strip on the old one went bad.

After, and since I was alone, I picked up some stuff that a
certain wifey would never let me get had she been with me.

A nice 8 pack of White Castle Cheeseburgers and..........
a four pack of wonderful SPAM!!! :D I love SPAM.

SLW almost went through the ceiling when she saw the SPAM! :eek:

I'm gonna fry a can up this Saturday morning. Unless she takes
it all back which she is just eeeeevil enough to do.

SPAM....yum.:D

Our Sam's probably has 800 of the new Nikon Digital SLR cameras, huge stack of yellow Nikon boxes, probably 4x8x10 feet. They must have about 1000 iPod Touchs.

And you got Spam?

I love Over Easy eggs, grits and a couple of slices of Spam for breakfast. Can't get more country than that.

Don't feel too sorry for him. He got the new digital at Costco and just got his new Sony home theater thingy.

My only objection to the Spam is it's full of eeevil sodium and cholesterol and preservatives. That stuff is a heart attack waiting too happen. :eek:

I like the stuff at Whole Foods better. One can of Spam is fine, but four? At least the ER isn't too far from here. :rolleyes: :D

I dunno. Spam isn't as bad for you as eating potatoes or rice. Nobody ever got fat eating Spam; who could eat that much at once?

My Doc doesn't buy the food cholesterol/plaque theory. She says that people just manufacture cholesterol according to plan regardless of what they eat. What your bod does with it has more to do with manual labor than anything else.

I like Spam. I don't eat it much because I don't eat out of cans much but it's fine once in a while. Eating White Castle burgers is a truly pointless act, though. :D

If you and SLW come up north, I'll take you to the SPAM plant in Austin and then treat you to some White Castle sliders in the Twin Cities.... We have it all up here, you have no idea.

From Grumpier Old Men....

Grandpa: What the... what the hell is this?
John: That's lite beer.
Grandpa: Gee, I weigh ninety goddamn pounds, and you bring me this sloppin' foam?
John: Ariel's got me on a diet because the doc said my cholestorol's a little too high.
Grandpa: Well let me tell you something now, Johnny. Last Thursday, I turned 95 years old. And I never exercised a day in my life. Every morning, I wake up, and I smoke a cigarette. And then I eat five strips of bacon. And for lunch, I eat a bacon sandwich. And for a midday snack?
John: Bacon.
Grandpa: Bacon! A whole damn plate! And I usually drink my dinner. Now according to all of them flat-belly experts, I should've took a dirt nap like thirty years ago. But each year comes and goes, and I'm still here. Ha! And they keep dyin'. You know? Sometimes I wonder if God forgot about me. Just goes to show you, huh?
John: What?
Grandpa: Huh?
John: Goes to show you what?
Grandpa: Well it just goes... what the hell are you talkin' about?
John: Well you said you drink beer, you eat bacon and you smoke cigarettes, and you outlive most of the experts.
Grandpa: Yeah?
John: I thought maybe there was a moral.
Grandpa: No, there ain't no moral. I just like that story. That's all. Like that story

:D I get your point. Think I'm just freaked out about choleresterol and eating too much fatty, crummy food. My dad didn't watch what he ate; he died at 67. His sister would only buy meat at a little local butcher shop that had top quality. She died at 88. Who knows?

I also think it's a good idea to avoid high fat content foods. I had an uncle that used to say he was going to enjoy life and not worry about the special diet the doctor put him on, after all you had to die someday. Problem was, he did not die all at once, they buried pieces of him at a time, first had to have a foot removed, then a leg up to the knee, then up to the waist, then another leg, etc....then a few strokes later, and a huge burden on my poor Aunt that had to take care of him, he eventually died...

OMG, was he a Spam eater? :eek:

I'll have to make sure SR reads this, so he'll contemplate this while he munches down on the Spam. :D Have to admit his diet is improving lately. He even eats his veggies (most of the time).

Sounds like he was diabetic. That happened to my Mom. Fat wasn't the culprit, though, it was all the carbs. The ADA had just revised their guidelines to allow more generous carbs when she was diagnosed. She never made the connection between carbs and sugar so she switched from eating candy to eating fruit and went for wheat bread instead of white bread. It's all the same, of course.

If she'd stuck to a Spam diet, she'd probably still be around today. :D

When my first greyhound, Jessie, was diagnosed with bone cancer, I did massive research on the web. There was a vet on the petcancer forum who talked about research being done by Colorado State.

They said that cancers fed on carbs. They advised a specific diet with low carbs, low sugars and fairly high fat. I was told to give Jessie high fat dog foods (cheapie cans) and to make "fat balls" for him to eat. He also got massive supplements. I think I kept the old Wild Oats store in business with all the stuff I bought him.

He ended up living as long as the dogs that had gone through chemo, amputation, radiation. Osteosarcoma is so grim that nothing can really stop it (unless they've come up with something else since Jess died in 2001). He at least was spared the torment of the more aggressive treatments.

I always wondered if there was a link to human dietary treatments of diseases that they had discovered with the research on dogs.

I follow this stuff closely since my mother died of the complications of diabetes. While it's no good to be fat and transfats are lethal, eating fat and protein over carbs is clearly a life-saver. We just weren't designed to eat so many carbs without burning it off in manual labor. You can't do that with an hour at the gym every day.

Most people who don't work outdoors in all weathers probably should eat a lower glycemic index diet day-to-day. There's nothing wrong with chowing down on potatoes or rice or bread or whatever once a week - just not every day. ;)

They apparently like it in Scotland, too. I stayed in a bed and breakfast in Stirling, Scotland where the guy apparently lived up to the tradition of thriftiness. Spam, tang juice (blech) and beans. At least I saved calories that day. It was truly awful.

BTW, I didn't throw up, actually didn't see that masterpiece on the plate. But SR saved me 3 slices. I ate one and let him have the other 2. So he managed to eat the whole can of spam! :eek::D

Just the right amount of char.

Makes my mouth water just looking at it.

Try taking a can and decanting the loaf whole onto a cookie sheet and studding it with whole cloves and baking it at 400 degrees till it is golden brown.

You should serve it with a nice blush wine. :D
