1950's week - day 3
I received a Spam sampler package today courtesy of Linda Burgett (mykindofcooking). Three cans of Spam, three packettes of Spam lite "singles" and ... wait for it ... a pair of Spam flipflops. I feel as if I've died and gone to Speaven.
An exchange with a blogging friend has called my attention to the fact that this really is goulash. I have a vague memory that we had a different thing called goulash, but I cannot be sure of that. So goulash it is. Try it. Someone in your family will like it.
Beef and Mac and Cheese
I still make this from time to time. It was very popular in our house. It also didn't cost a lot of money, which was an issue. There's nothing complicated or difficult about it.
You will need:
an onion, chopped
some garlic, chopped (my mother didn't use garlic, but I do)
1 lb ground beef
1 lb elbow macaroni
1 cup New York State cheddar cheese (this is where I came from)
1 28 oz can tomatoes, juice reserved for another use
salt and pepper to taste
Could this be any simpler? Cook the onion, add the garlic, cook the beef, cook the macaroni, add the tomatoes to the onion and beef. Add the cheese. Put it all together in a big pot and make sure it gets nice and hot. Season with salt and pepper. Pig out to your heart's content.
Now for my way: put in Spam in place of the ground beef and Velveeta in place of the cheddar. Oh, come on, you know you want this!
