Feburary's vintage noms consist of the sequel to last vintage food post's aspic. Made for a friend's farewell, it features stuffed olives, spring onion, boiled egg and layers of pepper, shaved chicken and shredded lettuce. Mmm.
Main course is Spam n Beans, the recipe taken from a 1944 National Geographic magazine.
In an attempt not to waste food I tried to eat some afterwards and was violently ill. I pity the poor boys on the front who had to eat this tinned torture, but even more those pacific nations left with it as the legacy of US wartime occupation.
