I had a girlfriend that used to grind up Spam, mix some mayonnaise and relish in it and her husband was quite happy to take it to work in his sandwiches. Her kids loved it also.

None of them have had it as adults. They will tell me how they hated it. Oh yeah? Then how come there was never any left over? How come toward the end of summer I would have to buy two cans instead of just one for one lunchtime? Why did it turn out to be a big favorite with all four kids? A loaf of crusty bread, mustard and sliced Spam on a plate and they were very happy kids fighting over who got the most.

But I still get the "Oh Ma, that is so gross!"
Addie, my niece-in-law and her friends are all kids in their late 20's! It was so cute. I did point out that we ate Spam all the time when I was a kid, and I'm still alive!

My favorite response has always been, "You must have hated us as kids to feed us that stuff."

"Do you want me to lie or tell the truth?"
