Default Saturday evening…….have you ever

Found these little jewels at the dollar store. I’m not much for these types of potted meats but figured I was headed to the lease so might as well get one.
Not bad, but not puke your guts out either
So, have you ever indulged in something like this?

I thought potted meat was for baiting coon traps.

So I went fishing with a buddy years ago and he said if I would bring the drinks he would bring the snacks. After 4 hours on the boat he asked are you ready for a snack and I said heck yea. He broke out some cheese and crackers and those things. I said oh hell no. I’ve lived too many years without eating that crap and ain’t gonna start today. 3 hours later I was starving and I have to tell ya in those circumstances it wasn’t that bad.

You haven’t had good food till you get stuck on a job and decide to eat a can of Vienna that has been rolling around in your truck for at least two years.

Tossed without eating. Yuck

I hear ya. Going fishing or hunting with my grandad was special and if they were good enough for him, they were good enough for me too. Never looked at or studied the can so I don't know if they are the same now or not. I remember my grandma would put a can or two of them in a pot of sauerkraut for a special touch.

Vienny sausage between two saltine crackers was my dad’s “go-to” snack, and he’d be dammed if he was gonna bring something different just for me.

Vienna Sausage
Saltine Crackers

I'll occasionally eat Vienna sausages but never have tried that brand. I hate regular potted meat or Spam. That crap is nasty. Reminds me too much of canned cat food or somethin. Heck no.

Vienna sausages,sardines,canned smoked oysters any day of the week. I'd have to be in a bad way before I opened a can of Spam or potted meat. There's starving people in Africa that'd use that for bait to catch something good to eat.

We ate the Vi-Ennys all the time here too. They were a great hunting and fishing quick snacks from my Grandaddy Smart in the 70s and early 80s. Haven’t had them in a long, long time but would still eat them. We ate Spam as well occasionally. Mostly sliced as a cold or as a fried sandwich. Same on the time length since I’ve had them. Never experienced potted meat until a friend of mine in high school’s mom sent it with us on a fishing trip with his dad. I ate it but haven’t had it since. I couldn’t get the thought of cheap cat food or dog food out of my mind

I’ve had plenty of both in my youth. Potted meat sandwiches were sent in my lunch as a kid. I got a paper route when I was 11 and started buying my own lunches at school. Haven’t tried potted meat since. The little sausages I had a time or two since but not in a long time.

Hell you eat gumbo… which used to be peasant food before eating Cajun food became a craze!.

Yes. Wash it, thinly slice it, and with a big spread of regular mayo, cheese and white bread. I also preferred it fried or baked but we ate it both ways.

For sure ate spam, Vienna sausages and canned fish (tuna and salmon). I’ve cut most of that out besides the fish because they are horrible for you. Only canned meat I eat now is mackerel and sardines in water since it’s supposed to be good for your heart - and it grew on me.
