This week we're talking about weird foods...or at least foods you eat that others *might* consider odd/strange.
I'll level with you, I've eaten a LOT of weird food. Most of it is stuff that was a once in a lifetime culinary experience. Here's a short list of things I've consumed...but will never do it again:
- Haggis. During my first trip to Scotland at 16 years old.
- Rocky Mountain oysters aka bull's balls. I blame my dad for not telling me what I was eating. *gag*
- Seal flipper stew. I blame my dad's mom's Newfoundland family for that one. AND...In my defense I was 3 years old when I ate it.
- Cow's tongue. Note: Always ask the ranchers in your family exact what they are feeding you. I thought it was corned beef. Wrong!
- Snake. This was during a work trip to Arizona a few years ago.
- Alligator. A burger at "Fast Eddie's" about a decade ago. And, NO it does not taste like chicken.
Three foods you eat that others might think are strange/weird.
Calimari. I love me some seafood, squid included! I much prefer the round "body" of the squid than the slightly rubbery tentacles. So tasty though. In sixth grade, a science specialist came through and we did a dissection of squids. It gave me a much better appreciation for where they come from...and how juvenile 6th grade boys are with ink sacks.
One of my favorite midnight snacks is pretzels and Nutella. I personally, don't think it's too weird. But I've been told that it is, so I'm counting it! The combo of salty and sweet just can't be beat!
Sometimes, I'll put a scoop of ice cream in my coffee instead of milk and sugar. What?!?! It's all the same right? It adds great flavor, adds a nice foam to the top and gives the drink a little extra body!
