We just finished our annual Cookbook Fair (mark your calendar for next year during the first week in August), which offers such a wide and interesting variety of used cookbooks. Some of the comments written in the books are just as interesting as the printed recipes. In one cookbook, I found a type-written piece of paper with a collection of Spam haiku! What fun:

Slicing your sweet self;

salivating in suspense:

sizzle, sizzle…Spam.


Oh tin of pink meat

I ponder what you may be:

Snout or ear or feet?


Pink beefy temptress:

I can no longer remain


Who knew that Spam could inspire the soul!
