Don Strasburg is an unfashionable luncheon meat. Pallid, fatty and looking very much like an ulcerated leg, it’s the Jason Donovan of processed meats. Strasburg – which is actually a melange of ground pork, chicken and beef – cannot compete with sexy prosciutto or luscious leg ham but long ago, I used to eat it all the time.
For some unknown reason Dad used to call it ‘stress’. These were some of the stress meals I enjoyed:
- Stress and egg (my bacon substitute)
- Fried rice with stress (cut into quarters)
- Stress sandwich (with Rosella chutney)
- Stress pizza (pita bread spread with margarine, chutney, cheese and stress)
I wonder if anyone still eats stress.
