MOTHER OF ALL MEATS?

Woo hoo! We got a bunch of No-Recipes yesterday, so it looks like our cookie book won't have to be a -let. Keep 'em coming! And remember: I like to eat poo. Most dogs I know like to eat poo. So your No-Recipe doesn't have to be perfect. It just has to taste as good as poo.

Anyway.

I've hit a major obstacle with my No-Recipe, and it's called my human. Since she isn't good at meat, and The Man lives at the House of Meat, I figured he could pick out a reeeallllly Special (meaty) Ingredient for me.

I knew The Man wouldn't bring me something lame like carrots, but you have no idea how excited I got when he brought over a package of what he called "the Mother of all Meats".


AKA: SPAM.


And that's when the trouble started. It went a little like this:

MY HUMAN: SPAM? No freaking way.
ME: Uhm, yes way!
THE MAN: But it's the Lite kind. 50% less fat. 33% fewer calories.
ME: Yes! Low fat! Low calorie! SPAM is good!
MY HUMAN: But it's still SPAM.
ME: But it's low fat SPAM!
THE MAN: Pug eats feces and you're worried about SPAM??
MY HUMAN:
Yes.

And that's how they left it. The Man says SPAM isn't any worse than a hotdog, but my human just keeps saying No freaking way. I don't even know what SPAM is, but now I totally want some. Especially if my human thinks it's grosser than poo.

Anyone here ever eaten SPAM, Mother of all Meats, and lived to tell about it?? Please speak now so my human will let me put it in my cookies!

I've never tasted SPAM...or poo for that matter...but I can't imagine that SPAM is worse than poo. Viva La SPAM!

SPAM ROCKS! I don't usually go for the 'lite' foods, I prefer the real thing in moderation but I think 'lite' is a good compromise in this case. Use those magic orbs, puglet, how can she resist?!

CloggieGirl said...

Oh Puglet! SO close to meats but still so far away! SPAM tends to have a lot of salt in it which could make you extra tubey! Maybe the Man can soak the SPAM in water for a bit to get rid of the salt.

In my opinion Spam totally beats poo any day... And it doesn't require a bee hat.
I vote for Spam.

I vote for Spam, but not the low-fat kind!

I've never tried Spam, my human is like yours. I haven't tried dog poo, but I LOVE cat poo (I had a buffet of it until my human saw and got some special litter box I can't reach). Anyway, I think you should give your human the PUG STARE. Usually works for me! Good Luck!

We want some Spam too. Mom said the only way we'll get any too is if your human makes a cookie with it. Maybe Dutch can help convince your human to use it.

Puglet and Puglet's Human
I think SPAM is HAWAIIAN for MEAT.
Love Noodles

I've never had Spam either. It sure looks yummy - how can you go wrong with packaged meat?
It would really quite rude to turn down such a gift from The Man. I mean, he is the expert on meat and he did bring it just for you and your cookie recipe.
Good luck!

OK now, my human is shaking her head in disbelief. We LOVE SPAM in our house. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!!!!!!! To explain, our human lived in Hawaii for 15 years before she met any of us and yes, that is ONE of Hawaii's favorite meats. (well kinda meat). Hawaii DOES have other great real meats and food but SPAM is by FAR the tastiest as far as we, at the Pack O' Pugs house is concerned.

Your HAVE to use SPAM in your cookies!!!!!!!

SPAM is from Minnesota, and Noodles is RIGHT. Hawaiians eat most SPAM per capita. My dad is from MN, but he doesn't eat it, he says it's gross. Mom LOVES it !(she even has pink"I love SPAM" t-shirt) I think Mom eats it occasionally just to annoy Dad (then we get to eat little, hee hee)
Try it, it's oh, so, good !

We are truly impressed with your low-cal SPAM. Who knew?? That guy at the HOM sure knows his stuff. It would be a crying shame not to use it since he so thoughtfully brought it over. Maybe on the hawaiian theme, you could add in pineapple just for kicks.

When I hear SPAM I think Monty Python. But tell your humom that anything that has a museum all about it can't be all bad.

DMBY said...

Puglet, SPAM is totally awesome. You can eat it with white rice and a fried egg (like my husband from Hawaii), or with mac+cheese (like me, a poor white kid from the inner city).

If you fry it up until it is crispy, it takes out a lot of the fat but leaves the yummy taste. (Only thing though is that your kitchen will smell like SPAM for quite a while. You'd better tell your human to open the window and put a fan on)

Never tried SPAM and my human will never give us. In fact, my human has never eaten SPAM either. Too much salt and not healthy for both human and pugs, she says. However, she buys Dog Meat Loaf from a butcher. Super yummy and healthy. Made of free-range meat, with carrots, oats and barley.

here's a compromise, have The Man from the house of meat make the spam cookies for you. Your human wins, he wins, and most important of all you get to eat spam!
Uff-Da

Spam...why didn't we think of that...oh cuzz we have never had it! Our human says about once every year or two she gets a craving, cut into little cubes an browned, mixed in with scrambled eggs...yumm.

Our human came home with Nathan hot dogs for dogs last night...yup, dog treats that are little Nathan sausages, in a Nathan and everything...we love her!

Maybe the mother of all mystery meats! What exactly is SPAM? All I know is people always make fun of it. I want to say this is something they made my dad eat way back when in the Navy (he was in during WWII and Korean Wars). I think it was called something nasty like: (bad word for poo) on a shingle!!

Spam is totally nasty! I would imagine the poo couldn't be any worst! Oh, by the way, I sent our No Recipe today!

Darwin said...

Lo-cal spam! Sounds mysterious! It's still very popular in Korea, especially served with leftovers.

Puget-I have an idea!

When you reach 500 followers you should do a special post or something. Like maybe we all say why we love The Daily Puglet, or you post a special cause we can all donate to in your name, I don't know-something!

How 'bout it? A special celebration. Just food for thought...now back to the meat.

Puglet,
SPAM...we think it would be great, would probably rate right up there with scrapple and head cheese. Please don't ask whats in head cheese, your human would go over the edge and never come back!
Ellie, Emmitt and Eli from Texas, but our mom is from Pennsylvania where some people, not mom, eat scrapple and head cheese.

Puglet, my person tells me there's is nothing on this earth better than a slice of SPAM with yellow mustard on a homemade biscuit. MMM-MMM. Good luck on getting that slice into some cookies. I love that little individual slice in a package. I'll have to go find some for my very own. Thanks for the tip. Love, LittleDog
