Several days ago I read an exquisitely well-written blog post about ©Spam penned by a notable blogger, Linda Lienen, in her blog The Task at Hand. The title of her post was A Taste of Americana. Besides describing Rosie The Riveter, The Jolly Green Giant, and Paul Bunyan, she included a thorough description of the ©Spam Museum and of course the “quintessentially American food which has fed soldiers and kids, college students, cruisers and struggling families.”
The post struck a chord inside my brain, since our family was passionate about ©Spam back in Changuinola where I grew up in a banana plantation owned by United Brands. Spam was one of my favorite dishes. Later as I morphed from a child to an adult, the dish dissipated from my memory until I read Linda’s post.
During a recent visit to El Machetazo supermarket, I searched for a can of ©Spam and I found it. We added a small can to the cart as a tribute to Linda and to walk memory lane once more.
Below are a couple of pictures of the favorite dish of my youth. Here we go.
Thank you Linda for all the memories. Good Day.
