Yeah, my friend nr 1 who is very close to me, only eat rabbit from 2 places these days, because he knows where they come from. But yeah, he doesn't touch restaurant rabbit and he is a chef himself.

My wife's bad experience. After visiting a hibatchi grill (ninja chefs) the next morning i tried to copy a trick they did with an egg.

Spinning an egg around i chopped it with a large knife as quick ad possible. The finished product had eggshells in it.

One time I grabbed a handful of coco puffs from a ziplock bag on the table and popped it in my mouth.

Turned out to be dog food :(

My first husband wanted to go land crabbing. It's some kind of crab that is here, as well as in Cuba, where he was from. At certain times of the year the leave the water and migrate. Well, we did, he caught quite a few and we brought them home to cook. His mom had always cooked them and he really didn't know how and, at that point, I had never cooked a crab in my life and had only eaten crab out of a can, VERY young me, had moved from up north maybe a year before, and he was 8 years older, though was the baby boy of the family so never did anything for himself, much less cooked. Okay, we throw them in a pot to cook them. OMG the smell! We had to open the windows, turn on fans just to be able to stay in the house, took days to get the smell out. He insisted they were good, picked the meat, and he ate some of them. He didn't get sick so I assumed they were okay and being bad wasn't the cause of the smell. We froze the rest of the picked meat. I couldn't bring myself to eat any because of the smell. I ended up throwing away the frozen meat eventually because I wasn't cooking anything with it and I think he forgot about it. It was also years before I ate crab anything, just the thought of it was nauseating. We found out later from an older Cuban women that you are supposed to cook them outside because they do have that horrendous odor when cooking.

The only other time happened with him as well. We went to Taco Bell for dinner, got tacos and churros, then went out for a night of drink and debauchery. I was horribly sick the next day and for some reason just the thought of churros (which I love) was nauseating for months and months after, not tacos, just the churros, though it was probably (definitely ) the D and D that caused the sickness.

I mean the one that comes to mind easily was the time I ate one too many pizza (which is all the time) and I almost always don't feel good about myself afterwards.

Crab as well as crayfish (why do they call it fish?) should be cooked with some dill, or maybe some other herb. To kill the smell. It does have weird smell, but by adding a lot of dill it becomes if not pleasant at least not nauseated.

Charlie, you don't understand. I've cooked crab many, many times since. NOTHING has ever smelled like those crabs did, NOT EVEN CLOSE! They are not the crab that most people can get. You have to go out and catch them yourself at certain times of the year when they are migrating on land. Besides the fact that I don't think Cubans even use dill, I don't think anything could have made a difference in the smell from these things.

I've never heard of using dill. Craig's family is from Maryland and they never used dill. SIL's family is Cajun and they certainly never used dill for crabs or crawfish. Is that something from your homeland or did you pick that up since you've been in U.S.?

My mouth was swollen when I woke up this morning like if someone had punched me. I'm pretty sure it was the cheese cake I had last night. I took some Benydryl. I've never had this reaction from eating cheese cake before....
