Last Friday, on our way home from our craft week, we took a side trip to Austin, MN. We had to go to the bathroom anyway, so we went to the SPAM Museum. Spam is spiced meat or shoulder of pork and ham sold in a can that was first introduced in 1937. 44,000 cans are produced per hour and there are over 15 varieties made by Hormel. They also make Dinty Moore Beef Stew and Chili.

It was a very interesting museum and well worth the stop (and it's FREE!).
Side note: My husband HATES Spam. Apparently it was a staple at the school he attended as a child... Spam casserole, fried Spam, Spam salad, etc.
