    A delicious Spam recipe: Slice spam thinly and fry. Make toast. Mix and heat one can whole kernel corn and one can cream style corn. To serve....put one slice bread on plate. Arrange two slices of fried spam over toast. Ladel a generous portion of hot corn over the spam. Cut into fork sized pieces. Absolutely delicious. My family has never heard of anyone else eating this, but its one of our favorites.

    My brother (15 yrs older than I) loved her butter rolls and he'd have one for lunch at school in his lunch pail (syrup bucket). It was homemade biscuit dough fried in a cast iron skillet like a fried pie, with a dollop of butter and sprinkle of suger inside.

    Most of Mom's recipes and canning recipes listed ingredients only. No instructions.

    Here's a banana nut cake that I remember with fondness. The "filling" was more of a glaze made in the cast iron skillet.

    1 1/2 cup flour
    1 cup white sugar
    3/4 cup brown sugar
    3 T. sweet milk
    1/2 cup shortening
    2 bananas, crushed with fork
    1 t. soda
    1/2 t. salt
    1 t. vanilla
    1 cup crushed pecans
    2 eggs

    Blend sugars and shortening. Add eggs, milk, and sifted flour, soda, and salt. Put in crushed bananas and pecans. Put in moderate oven to cook.

    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1/2 cup white sugar
    3/4 cup canned milk
    pinch salt
    few drops vanilla
    Cook 1 minute. Thicken with powdered sugar and spread on cake. Put pecans on, if desired.

    We certainly didn't have much growing up, but canned a lot of our own food. Breakfast was usually peanut butter toast, or my Dad's favorites were milk toast (buttered toast dampened in hot milk) or milk crackers (crumbled saltines and sugar in cold milk). I wasn't a big fan of shredded wheat. Then of course were the many critter meals- hunting was the only way to stretch the budget for 8, and my German GrandFather was a great hunter. Snapping turtle-woodchuck-squirrel-rabbit-raccoon stews. I had a hard time with raising our own poultry to eat. Don't forget the good old pressure cooker meals! I still remember Mom helping a neighbor clean up after the top blew off hers. And lots of Jello salads. I still have some boxes of Mom's old cookbooks- Rumford was a favorite. Spam- I refused to eat it.

    Spam is now very expensive per pound compared to hamburger, chicken, etc. It used to be very cheap when I was a kid.

    Remember, people will see your quilts long after you are gone....NOT your housework!

    I have never eaten Spam even though it is available here in Australia. My mum used to buy a canned meat called Camp Pie. We ate it with salad or on sandwiches. I remember we liked it but I haven't eaten it since I was kid. Mum was a brilliant cook, had the knack to make any type of pastry and made cakes & biscuits (cookies) every weekend. When I think of all the sugar we consumed not to mention butter we all should have been obese but with no TV, X Box, DS or computer we were outside most of the time and walked or ran everywhere.
    Aaaahhh!! the good old days.

    When I was growing up; we also had the commodity meat[ looks like Spam, from the government, for low income families].
    I used to make a Spanish Rice recipe and add the Spam lookalike meat to that.
    Also would make Pizza burgers with it.
    1can Spam- ground up using the old box grater
    1 lb hamburger
    1 small onion, chopped/grated
    1 can tomato soup
    pizza spices[oregano, parsley, thyme,garlic powder-whatever you like, as desired]
    open face hamburger buns

    Fry hamburger, onions, spam- until brown
    Add tomato soup , spices.Heat through. Spead buns with meat mixture.Sprinkle cheese over top. Bake in 350 f oven until browned. About 1/2 hour.
    Could have added green peppers[cooked along with the meat mixture] and also mushrooms.

    I remember growing up rural and Grandpa ran the General Store in town too. We ate from the garden, chickens, hogs, and all kinds of jellies! Canning all summer with the heat cooking us too! Grandma made plenty of potatoes - fried with sausage and eggs in the morning, boiled, often cold, with sandwiches for lunch, and mashed with meat for supper. Also noodles with stewed tomatoes, plenty of soups to use the last bits of corn etc. Coffee cakes were baked every Saturday with wonderful spices. Bread on the wood stove gave a heavenly smell when coming in from the cold snow.

    As for recipes I always liked Shepherds Pie. Easy just brown hamburger, add assorted veggies and tomato base (I now use soup and sometimes mushroom), put into casserole dish, top with mashed potatoes and bake about a half hour til hot. Add a cucumber salad - cukes sliced thin with onions in a sweet sour sauce, homemade bread with mulberry jelly, and pie for desert. Ah, memories.

    My DH liked spam, slice, fry, eat with fried eggs or make a sandwich.
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?
