Howdy, Spam!!!

Lord Honey, in Hawaii they would say Aloha Spam--but y'all are about to give a big "Ol' Howdy" to the official meat of Hawaii--that's right Spam. Let me tell y'all--people in the South have a hankerin' for Spam too--and believe it or not, this was a favorite treat that my Mom made me when I was at home. I thought we was soooo exotic when we had Mom's tropical Spam dinner. My "Country Bling Spam" is a great way to stretch a dime and feed your family a tropical tasty dish.
