That reminds me of escargot. I had it one time and thought it was delicious, but later upon thinking about it I decided that practically anything cooked in garlic and butter would taste delicious.

Thus, escargot added to my list of things I don't want to see on my plate. There's plenty of things just as good that don't have a "yuck" factor.

So even though you've eaten and enjoyed them, you've assigned them your "Yuck factor" and decided to never enjoy them again?

I see that as a shame of lost enjoyment.

Yes, although I feel no shame. It was a good thing to try once and I'm glad I did. Anyway they're probably expensive now and I haven't seen them on any menus lately.

How different do you think the restaurant ones are from the ordinary species found in US gardens?

I really have no idea. I've wondered that myself.

I agree with the frog legs. I have tried them and to me they tasted like slimy, slightly fishy chicken. Not that great.

When I was in high school, after a ski meet, we would go to a restaurant in Duluth, MN that had EXCELLENT frog legs. They were my favorite--or maybe I was just exhausted after skiing and would eat anything. I also pocketed the Rye Crisps...

That is why I mentioned it--the restaurant was a "rotating" restaurant on top of a hotel...wonderful view of the city...sorry, I can't remember the name. But the frog legs were excellent. I am not a fan of frog legs, but the ones there were excellent. Near the harbor? (Pulling this from grey matter based on the view of the water).

The Top of the Harbor, above the Radisson. The outer floor in the round building makes one rotation per hour, so you pretty much get the whole view of Duluth if you eat there. I never eat there, because the food isn't that great and it's over priced. It's more of a tourist thing I guess. No locals go there. Once I had chicken Kiev, and it was ground and pressed, straight from the freezer like you would get at the grocery store. I wish it was a decent place to eat- I love the concept.

My mom used to make this recipe called "cream tuna peas on toast." It looked like someone threw up on a slice of bread.

Come to think of it, I wouldn't want to see any version of peas on my plate. I still don't like them, all these years later.
