Next weekend we will host a birthday party at the Point in honour of our great granddaughter’s first birthday. Ayla Althena will celebrate with a gaggle of family including 4 sets of grand-parents.
While shopping this past weekend I tumbled upon another famous birthday………..Spam luncheon meats is 75 years old this month. To mark the occasion Hormel have launched a limited edition commemorative can. Not only was I surprised by the can, I was gobsmacked by the price $4.98. For spam. Per ounce it now cost more than pork or ground hamburg. I must be getting old.
Growing up we ate that concoction of pig parts on a regular basis, in sandwiches, fried, or added to potato and corn to make a scallop. I never gave it much thought, I ate it because it was served. When we were young, we had a choice at each meal, take it or leave it. Once I was out on my own, I can’t remember ever buying Spam or serving it to my children.
So happy birthday Ayla, happy birthday me………and happy birthday Spam.
