Hi Lois…Happy New Year…well…at least let’s hope it’s better than last year…lol.

Spam…is an acquired taste.  The Hawaiians go crazy for Spam.  It turns out that during WW II Spam became a form of monetary exchange and the Hawaiians used it in their rice dishes.  It caught on and never lost its appeal in Hawaii.

And, from the similar influence of American troops, Spam is popular in Korea and makes a good addition to kimchi fried rice. 

 

I agree spam works well in kimchi fried rice! For me, kimchi was something I couldn't get past the smell of originally. But after getting into Kdramas I was more willing to give it another try. Now I really love the flavors. Seeing it featured so prominently in shows made me more curious. Looking at how much kimchi Korea eats annually as per, https://gowithguide.com/blog/south-korea-tourism-statistics-2023-all-you-need-to-know-5254 it's no surprise it's become their national food.

 

The cultural exposure from dramas definitely opened my eyes to appreciate it more. Funny how our tastes can change over time like that.

At one time dog was also popular in Korean cuisine.  Popularity does not necessarily make good cuisine.

I'm  sure I've read  that South Korea has only recently banned its use as a meat.

Growing up my Mom was a great cook with rustic entrees like fried chicken, meatloaf, pot roast, etc. but used a lot of canned veggies that I hated; like canned spinach or asparagus but I like fresh asparagus and spinach now.

In general I like more veggies now than as a child, which I think is very common.

 

Also I didn't eat Mayo until my mid twenties because I thought I hated it.  Mom used Miracle whip instead and I hated it.  once I taste real Mayo, I loved it

My favorite food as a child was Mac and cheese. Not the boxed kind, it was invented yet 😁, and now I make it from scratch at least once a month. AND, I add some cut up Spam! Grew up with it and now that I live in Lisbon, all my friends bring me Spam when they go to the US. I now like a lot more vegetables than I did as a child.
