Sorry, folks. I just hate spam. Course if I get hungry enough, I could eat anything I guess.

However, this jogged my memory. Forty some odd years ago, my Granny gave us a gift of a huge supply of food, because we were moving out of state and very poor.

One of the tastiest items was a quart size can of a whole chicken in broth. I used that chicken for several tasty meals, and the broth made the best homemade noodle soup I ever ate. I can't remember the brand though. I am wondering if I could get a quality product by canning my own, since we have lots of chicken specials now.

This weeks specials at the super market had veggies and beans for less than 40 cents per 1 lb. can, so I stocked up with several cases of the items we like the best to add to our stash. I also had coupons for several varieties of rice to add to that. Day after election, I have 1/2 of stock funds in my IRA liquidated and in a money market/treasury account.

I am going to pull out what I need for the next year now, before taxes go up.

I do not eat Spam, either. Instead, I buy canned ham by Dak. It comes in 16 oz. cans and can be found at Walmart.

It is expensive compared to Spam, but I am the only person here who will eat ham. Fresh pork we can barter for locally.

Barter for pork? Why else would I stock up on whiskey, since I don’t drink that stuff!
