SPAM and Hawaii

When hubby and I were travelling the US in our camper, we stopped in Minnesota just to go to the SPAM museum. We'd lived off-and-on for ten years in Hawaii. After our pilgrimage to the museum, we sat in a local bar and commented on having to go to the SPAM museum because of our stints in Hawaii. The bartender said, "OMG! Really? I thought they just told us that SPAM was popular in Hawaii as propaganda!" Nope! Hawaiian pizza? Put away your Canadian bacon, and put on the SPAM. SPAM kabobs. SPAM and eggs. SPAM on your saimin. SPAM ... Threw a Hawaiian themed party here, and people were astonished that a feature dish was SPAM and pineapple kabobs. Actually, it was pretty popular with our 70+ year old crowd!

Very interesting. I didn't look at them all yet because I stopped at Connecticut, which is where I live. I don't know if I should be embarrassed or not. Steamed burger???!!! What the heck is that? All I know is, it sure isn't impressive. I've experienced many great burgers in Connecticut, but I guarantee that NONE of them were steamed. Maybe they steam them at MacDonald's? That's FAR from comforting. I think of comfort foods as things like beef stew and biscuits, or home made soup, or mac & cheese.
