Guilty.

 

But stuff I don't eat:  many vegetables (Vegetables are what FOOD eats); any kind of fake food like tofu burgers.  You want a burger, eat a burger, not some kind of modified chemically-enhanced piece of laboratory plant-based experiment.  And most stuff I see in those photos of Asian food markets.  Like this stuff:

I don't want to watch that video but I bet I will force myself to watch it. Maybe when my stomach is empty. I will eat almost anything but reptiles. Reptiles are not on the menu around here. I ate snake once in Japan because I didn't know what it was. No it didn't taste like chicken but did taste somewhat like fish. I can't stomach tripe or liver. Only once did I have tripe that was any good. I tasted it because I didn't want to disrespect the wise guy that cooked it and was surprised it was very good.

They become family member's Albert, I get that.

When I can get down to the city limits, I will get a wabbit to try again .:D

We used to get rabbit from a Family friend that raised them on the farm, that's where we got the annual pig that gave us all the home made salumi (anything cured in a casing), sausages and prosciutto. If my father could I used to joke he would use the hair on the pig to make a hairbrush. Anyway those rabbits were fantastic. There was a lady out where we live that raised rabbit that were pretty darn good. There was fat on their hind quarters. She has stopped raising them due to her health and age. I have not found anyone that raises them since. My wife got me the 1st time I stewed a rabbit, she said she had a hair on her plate. 

I do rabbit the same every time. Cut into pieces using my poultry shears which I also use to prune shrubbery. Dredged in flour, browned then removed from the pot. Add garlic and onion cook for a while then deglaze all the tasty bits with a good red wine. Put the rabbit back in with celery, carrots and mushrooms. Fill the pot with wine until everything in it is covered in red wine. Bring to a boil then a rolling simmer until the meat almost falls off the bone, about 2 hours. Then add Yukon Gold potatoes when the taters are done the meat is falling off the bone. The secret to the recipe is in the spices which is no longer a secret. Salt, pepper, crushed chili peppers, a few dried bay leaves and a copious amount of smoked hot Hungarian paprika. A dozen fresh Portuguese buns or a loaf of Calabrese bread is a prerequisite.

Roasted Red Pepper soup. Add a mild Italian sausage plus a chewy homemade sour dough bread.

Looks good Ron. Hot Italian sausages not mild. When you are cooking those hot Italian sausages toast some Fennel seed in the same pan you are cooking the sausages. Very Calabrese or southern Italy. The sour dough bread is OK, it should be a dense Calabrese loaf. Those are the round Italian loaves of bread, even better toasted and rubbed with a garlic clove a drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVO) and a dash of oregano. That's the real deal garlic bread Iti style. Mom and Noni would split an entire loaf of bread and put it under the broiler then do the garlic rub, oil and a sprinkle of dry Oregano.

I just watched the video of the wet market. I might lose 10 lbs just by watching it. I don't get it, even the Indonesian guy interpreting hasn't eaten Rat. My brain is reeling. They won't eat Cat. The one lady doesn't eat Dog anymore since 2 of their pet mutts went missing. Call me small minded, I wouldn't even kiss an Indonesian woman on the lips after watching that.

glad you watched because I can’t. Seen some pictures in some newspaper reports, that was more than enough for me. 
Anyone south of Rome does not eat tripe, I’m south of Rome! I swear my brother is from the north! Eats it at weddings only, we have no clue how to cook or even buy it!

No peppers, brussel sprouts, or turnips.  None of that crazy batcrap.  The worst I saw was some woman in china flipping the lids off the sewers and scooping waste fat and oil out of the sewers to be reused, along with a healthy dose of floating turds and whatever else comes up.  I used to like the odd chinese meal of sweet and sour chicken balls and rice.  Unfortunately that isn't happening any more.

I'll pass, you can have mine M2B2. To tell you the truth I don't like Deer anymore. I did once but had some fresh last year and I didn't like it at all. Tastes change I guess. I'm even off the beef and bird lately. 

JD out.
