Bacon Spam Musubi & Cucumber Spam Musubi
My friend who split them and this experience with me is from out east. We share the same name. I told her I don’t usually eat spam, but recently a two weeks left, f*ck it mode has taken over me. So, I couldn’t pass up a spam date.
Her and I compared our childhood meals. She told me her mother would make macaroni and cheese, adding cut up pieces of spam into it.
My mother made me the same meal, no spam, sub pieces of hot dog.
What a dish.
I reflect on my diet from growing up quite a bit. Then the thought of growing up comes to mind. And I think, I get to choose the foods and liquids I nourish my body with.
I get to go find new foods and ingredients, talk cooking with friends, family, and bloggers, and find new places to dine.
..and catch up on all the meals I had to waste on boxed macaroni, powdered cheese, and mushed together xy and z of the pig.
