FULL HOLIDAY SCHEDULE TODAY WITH PICKLES ON THE SIDE
Hey Guys and Dolls we have some neat holidays to check out today so let’s get started.
SPAM made its debut today that good tasting meat in a can. Spam is actually precooked meat product with was introduced in 1937 by the Hormel Foods Corporation. It consists of chopped pork shoulder, with ham meat added, salt, water potato starch as a binder with sodium nitrite as a preservative. Spam and scrambled eggs are great together as well as a fried Spam sandwich with spicy mustard on a hard roll. So let’s give that Mystery Meat a big cheer today.
Spaghetti-O’s made the scene today that favorite meal of most little tykes. I know my sons loved them with sliced hot dogs mixed in. In my generation being a kid we all ate some form of canned macaroni, whether it was spaghetti, beefaroni or ravioli it was a meal that was great in a snap.
Here is a holiday we must thank a gentleman named Harold von Braunhut for the “Sea Monkeys.” When they first debuted in 1957 they were called “Instant Life” but in 1962 the name was changed to “Sea Monkey” which were actually brine shrimp and sold as novelty aquarium pets. I know I had purchased about 3 or 4 kits but the poor sea monkeys never lasted very long. Here’s an idea if you see a kit around and have little ones live your childhood once again and also enjoy the look on your little ones faces as they hatch.
It’s “Pickle Day” that wonderful crunchy brined ex-cucumber made in so many delicious shapes and flavors. Give me the good old Polish dill pickles, the Kosher dills, the chips give me any kind of pickle love them all. What’s a sandwich without pickles on the plate? Well enough for today Guys and Dolls, have a great day and be careful out there.
