Bev wanted to make pasta with Ashley, one of our surprise Christmas day guests, and Ashley wanted to incorporate it into a Chinese dish
to cook for us. She roasted some of the
pasta and boiled some then served the combo under a delicious stir fry of
chicken, beef, broccoli, and typical items for these dishes.
I’d shown Kathy’s charcuterie board previously but for New
Year’s Eve, Wende had to use the counter top for hers.
We had some cooked potatoes left from two previous meals and a
can of Spam that had been sitting in the pantry for a while so we decided to
turn them into hash for breakfast. I
just diced everything, medium, and fried in oil to crisp up, then plated and
topped with a couple of sunny side-up eggs for a delicious breakfast.
I would normally have added some peppers and onions to the
hash but I wanted to judge the taste with just potatoes and meat. This was my first ever spam hash but I will
make it again. I had originally bought
the Spam (Hormel) to recapture some of my childhood where canned meat sandwiches
were often on the lunch menu, except Mom always bought Treet (Armor) which I
assume was cheaper. Now, I have Spam on the grocery list to use with our next
batch of homemade bread for a fried Spam, cheese, and mayo sandwich, circa 1950’s.
Finally, when our motorhome stranded us along the roadside
back in October, Bev said she would not give it another change to strand us and
wanted to sell it. After engine repairs
and a full chassis servicing, it has been sitting peacefully in the driveway
awaiting it’s fate.
With the time to begin making reservations at hand, a
decision was required and Bev has agreed to give the ole girl one more change
since we spent so much on her, so I’ll soon have some trips to report on and
hopefully with good outcomes.
