Will spam heal my manflu?

What does spam have to do with manflu?

I have manflu, I hate being sick. I try not to use the word hate much, but I really do not like being ill. I wonder, will spam help?

It started as a cough that kept me awake on Tuesday night. On Wednesday it progressed and I had a headache and the beginning of some nasal sinus congestion. On Thursday it was much the same but on Thursday afternoon I started feeling worse. I decided on Thursday evening that I would have to stay home from work on Friday. I hate that. I really like work.

So the question remains will spam heal my manflu? This could become a new form of healing. I can’t imagine it could be any worse than naturopathy, acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, herbal medicine, homoeopathy, and ozone therapy. I’ve recently completed a short course in evidence-based medicine. I will need to think about a randomised controlled trial to determine if spam can make any difference to manflu. Just imagine if I find the cure!

Spam, vegemite and cheesy chicken

So tonight in my weakened state I decided to eat something comforting with the piece of Chicken Maryland I had in the refrigerator.

I’ve already shown just how good vegemite and chicken can me so adding spam must make it better! Am I right?

What you need to make this dish

  • I used a piece of Chicken Maryland
  • I used a slice of Swiss cheese because I ran out of Coon cheese
  • Two slices of spam
  • a few rings of red onion
  • a dessert spoon from a jar of caramelised onion
  • a good smear of vegemite
  • Toasted light rye bread
  • Coleslaw and avocado with garlic aioli

How do you put it all together?

  1. Toast the bread
  2. Spread a good smear of vegemite on the toast
  3. Lay on the slices of spam
  4. Add the red onion
  5. Spoon the caramelised onion onto the spam
  6. Put the chicken on top
  7. Lay the slice of cheese on the chicken
  8. Place into the oven at 200 °C for 20 minutes and then at 150 °C for 40 minutes
  9. After 60 minutes remove the chicken and allow it to rest for 10 minutes
  10. Plate up with the avocado coleslaw

Get it ready to photograph

  1. Shoot the photograph
  2. Eat the meal
  3. Wash the dishes
  4. Write the recipe
  5. Make a nice picture using Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop
  6. Blog and Vlog (verbs)

How did it taste?

The chicken was moist and tender and the skin was crisp and cheesy. The bread had a nice crunch and had absorbed the chicken, spam, onion and vegemite flavours. Obviously the coleslaw, avocado and garlic aioli contrasted nicely with the saltiness of the vegemite and spam. I did use salt reduced vegemite but I’ve never used salt reduced spam. I must try it to see what it tastes like.

    I went through my browser to see, it is possible here.

    1. Thank you so much Irene for going to all the effort. I tend to use the WordPress app on my iPhone to make comments rather than in the iPhone browser.
      I hope I’ll be feeling better soon. My sleep last night was less than idea.
