A Meal By Many Names

I had the strangest dream last night. I wanted to run to the grocery store to buy the ingredients for chipped beef on toast, but Billy didn't want me to go. Once I finally got to the store, I couldn't find the beef (ha ha) and was majorly disappointed.

I hate chipped beef on toast (or sh*t on a shingle). Hate it. Mostly because every time we ate it growing up, it made me feel like we were poor. I have no idea where that stereotype came from, but I remember being really embarrassed whenever mom would make it.

Anyway, today, thanks to my strange dream, I'm totally craving this.

I love sh*t on a shingle, I think when I was younger I liked it just so I could swear but I like it as a food too.

Um, that does not look appetizing at all. But, I have never tried it, so, best not to judge a book by its cover?

It looks super gross (and it should be, by all rights), but it is so good. :)

One of our favs. The beef is in a jar with other canned meats(tuna, chicken,spam!) Armour makes it.

We didn't use the canned beef growing up. We used the really cheap packages in the deli area, like next to the bologna. We had some the other night as a result of this dream and it was just like I remembered, only I liked it this time!
