Hi Guys,

I'll munch down on anything that can't out-run me, other than those tiny octopus babies they put in salads. I just know the thing is looking up at me and daring me to eat it, and I just won't do it.

Not much for squid, either. It makes my jaw bounce.

Other than that, I could live on seafood---rockfish, salmon, trout, and especially shrimp and bivalves....love clams, mussels, oysters....raw, steamed, baked---doesn't matter.

Oh, wait. No eel. Eel are just plain nasty.

And not to buck the trend, but I *love* home-made HOT Kim-Chee!! "Everything is better with rotten cabbage on it!" Yessir, loves me some kim-chee!

Boiled peanuts? Tried, but was distinctly underwhelmed...I guess if I were starving....maybe.... laughing

Mostly, though, I was taught to eat what was put in front of me, and I do. It's polite, and most things won't kill you, right? It'll just feel like it's killing you, then you stay close to home until it....."passes". beerchug

Got to say, Eastern Mediterranean cuisine is quite tasty and enjoyable.

Yes but Rich you eat scrapple so you have the taste buds of a goat.
My opinion on most furrin exotic foods is that the people are too poor to eat real food so they eat what they can get cheap or free. Did someone say CHEESEBURGER AND FRIES?

Nothing wrong with scrapple - I was raised on it. Grits and eggs and scrapple was the very definition of "breakfast" in my young world.

I like to slice mine thick, and fry it till it's crispy outside and still soft inside. Even though it has pork liver and other otherwise-unused pig parts in it, the taste of good scrapple is still very nice ...

Just goes to show that humans can get used to anything.
Shall I start a thread " Scrapple Yay or Nay?
Speaking of liver it always struck me as strange that people would want to eat the organ responsible for filtering the nasties out of the body but hey that's just me.
And before you ask Yes I am a somewhat picky eater.

Well, now, if you want to start describing in clinical, anatomical detail exactly what it is we're eating, then we'd probably hurl at the thought of eating eggs, or drinking milk, or eating an oyster or crawfish, or ESPECIALLY a crab - crabs are worse than maggots or buzzards in what they eat.

And it would be illegal to even PRODUCE Marmite!

I did a Google search on scrapple...
According to Wikipedia, Americans use "the Dutch word 'panhaas' for it".
One problem though: nobody here knows what panhaas is... laughing

PS Next month my son will have oysters in his restaurant. I eat them raw from the shell. Got my own oyster knife.

My dad and I used to eat raw mussels on the foot of the sea dike when I was a child... more than half a century ago.
But not closer than fifty yards from dead seals (these stink to high heaven).
Periwinkles we carried home for my mum to cook.

SPAM. People here love it, even after I tell them that it contains goat esophogi and noses.
I'm serious it's like the state's favorite food. Right now with the hurricanes whizzing around the place the shelves are bare of the stuff and of course toilette paper, rice and water.
Cheers,
Bill

I hadn't had Spam in years ( like 40) as SWMBO doesn't allow it in the house. She was away a while back so I bought some for old times sake and fried it up. Not as yummy as I remember. One nostalgia trip I won't be repeating.

One mans meat is another mans poison. Most sausages are cased in intestine, haggis is a fancy sausage made from sheep parts that are not otherwise used, stuffed in the stomach lining with lots of oats for texture, absolutely grand, even without a shot or six of Scotch before the meal. My wife won't touch it, and we both have Scottish genes.
I can no longer eat restaurant prepared Chinese, love it, but too much mono-sodium-glutamate, used to enhance the flavour, keeps me up all night......

Another Hawaiian friend of mine confirms SPAM as the Hawaiian state food. Slice it up, broil in the oven with brown sugar on top till the sugar melts, then accompanied by a cold pineapple ....

... I've tried it, and it's REALLY good.

SPAM stayed behind anywhere the American military went in World War II; Europe, North Africa, Western Pacific ...


DAMN, SAM, MORE SPAM!

Get this back on track......some good food....



Crayfish Ettoufe with Boudain Balls from last night, quite tasty....yea, I like Cajun too, especially when I am in Louisiana grin

Yes George, I do like scraple. Or as the Ohio Amish call it, krepples. Like Lannis said, fried a bit crisp on the outside, soft on the inside with a little maple syrup drizzled over it.....yummmm making me hungry.

I've posted this before but I think it's appropriate for this thread. Like Rich says, some good food.


Porterhouse steak from beef raised next door with fresh picked Chanterelles from the Oregon Coast range and greens from our veggie garden. With a glass of Pinot Noir from grapes grown behind my house and made in my basement you can't get much more local than that.

And Bill will say heart attach recipe.

Both of those dishes look amazingly good. Rich, you inspired me to make a cajun stew tomorrow evening before we go to the Redskins game.

I really didn't understand that we grew up sort of poor. Always had food and a roof so it couldn't have been to bad.

I thought everyone put bread in hamburger...who knew it was just to make it go further.

Spam was on the regular menu rotation

Everything not eaten went into the soup pot on the stove which was dinner at the end of the week.


....or maybe everyone just did these things in the 50ies

Growing up on Long Island Sound meant the freshest seafood and often.

An evening at the beach my Dad reached down and plucking a clam from the waters' edge, he opened and ate the thing..! Shocking to this 7 year old..!

We have an excellent Sushi restaurant nearby. Believe it when I say that a good one makes all the difference.

The only fish I like is Salmon and Halibut. Veggies, Asspergass and green salad. Like wine, red. Like a beer once in a while. Love Pastis. Like steak, and chicken and hamburgers. Don't like pork at all. Like all kinds of fruit, but they really taste the best in Hawaii, or California. Damn fussy eater. I like combinations of the stuff I listed. Love coffee, with 1/2 and 1/2. Love baggettes, but they are only made right in France. Like about 3% of the people I know. Butt, of the ones I like, I like a lot. I like all Brit bike owners, so the other part of the 3% is pretty small. Love my wife, but don't think much of her family. Don't think much of my family (outside of wife and daughter) either. I have one sister I like. The other is a hooker who doesn't mind not getting paid.

Sells like fish??? It must be fishy.

How about fresh, 1 day old, mountain lake trout?





Only thing better is fresh Chinook (King to those up North} salmon.
