Facebook is a necessary evil in blogging. I admit right now I am ticked off at that social media outlet right now. Truthfully, I think Facebook hates food.

Why am I saying this? Well, Facebook keeps blocking me for sharing my recipes to groups. I share 4 recipe links every hour, one to a random food/recipe sharing group. Yet, Facebook feels this is too much so it keeps banning me for one week from sharing.

It thinks it is spam what I share. The truth is I see way worse being shared than a recipe. I have seen porn in some the food groups. I have also seen bloggers share way more than 4 times an hour. They don’t get blocked for a week. I don’t get Facebook at all.

You might be thinking, can’t you appeal the block? Yes, but it goes nowhere.You can say why you don’t agree with it. If you read the fine print on temporary blocks it says clearly the block will not be lifted for any reason. What you’re writing to is just for feedback. It won’t lift the block, not matter if Facebook is in the wrong.

What hurts me is if I can’t share my recipes on Facebook it affects my stats. Facebook is a big source to get traffic. Sharing on Facebook your links increases the Facebook reach. So since I can not share right now. They want me to pay to increase my reach. What does reach

What does reach mean? It means more people see your posts. I have over 10,000 likes on my Facebook page for Seduction in the Kitchen but only 3% will actually see the post. The higher the reach you get, the more people who liked the page will see it. It is a game with Facebook.This is the part of being a blogger many don’t know about, the slavery of social media we must endure.

Facebook rant is over. Whew, I feel better. I get cravings sometimes for no reason. I wanted ham salad. I think part the reason I wanted ham salad was that I am starting to pack my lunch for work instead of buying it.

What is funny about me is I do not eat a just plain ham sandwich. I am so picky when comes to meats. Like I can’t eat chicken on the bone. However, if it is boneless I will eat it. You will notice I have no wings recipes. It is because of that reason.

Anyway, back to ham salad. I was at the store and there were these little boneless tavern hams on sale for $1.99 a lb. The average cost of these little hams was about $3. Perfect for grinding up for ham salad and a ham loaf, which I will post that recipe at a later time.

Dee being Dee, I wanted to do something a little different to ham salad. That was where the pineapple comes in. Ham and pineapple, hello, it is the perfect combo. It turned out amazing, and I loved having it for my lunches.

    Well, pineapple and ham are good old classic on a pizza so why not in salad form. And I’ll bet it’s divine in a sandwich

    I love ham, and this ham salad looks delicious. I would probably skip the bread and put it on crackers for a yummy snack

    Huh! I’d never heard of ham salad before! I was familiar with chicken salad and tuna salad, but this one is a new one for me. Thanks for sharing the recipe so I can try it!

      A few people I work with in Cleveland never heard Ham salad either. So I do wonder if it might be a PA thing. We had it all the time in Pittsburgh. 🙂 It is super yummy!

  • Facebook is so tricky, I feel your pain! On the bright side, this sandwich looks super tasty! I love the addition of pineapple.

      It really can be tricky!
      Thank you so much! The pineapple really brings out a new flavor in it 🙂

    This sounds like a great twist on an old favorite.
    I would love to try it, but some confusion on a couple of ingredient amounts.
    What does 1 cup /2 mean??
    And what is 1 oz can crushed pineapple 8 can mean?

      I am so sorry about that! I switched up my recipe cards and when I imported the recipes onto the new cards it jumbled some the recipes ingredients. I thought I had corrected them all but this one must have slipped by me. I did correct it but it 1/2 cup and 1 8oz can of crushed pineapple

    What do you think?
