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.
Mmmmmmm that sounds sooooo good! We always called it **** on a shingle. Creamed ham or tuna, or sometimes creamed peas over mashed potatoes. Yum!!

Blech!! She also used to make this thing called "salmon loaf," which didn't have any actual salmon in it. I think it was made with canned mackerel. All I remember is there were crunchy little bits of bone in it and little squishy bits of fish gut. Yuck!!

Oh and the casseroles, always with the same undercooked pastry on top. Jeez I hope my mom never reads this forum, haha.

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

i remember seeing a travel show once about places in the french countryside where people would go out after a long rainfall to collect dozens of snails from their walkways and around their yards. then they'd cook them up for dinner.

the pastoral beauty of their homes and gardens were such that it seemed like a natural thing to do, so i wouldn't have any problem eating their little slugs. but i don't think i could do the same thing in my own yard.

Maybe I'll do that tomorrow... (It's getting late here.)

I was going to say the same thing but I didn't want to offend any frog lovers here on the forum. I was thinking exactly "slimy, slightly fishy chicken." If I want something that tastes like chicken I'll have chicken, thank you!

I've heard that rattlesnake tastes like chicken too. Um, rattlesnake is also something I don't want to see on my plate, live or cooked, although I'd rather have cooked than live if that was the only choice.

Haha! I would totally eat rattlesnake. I'm game for trying almost anything (I ate kangaroo just last week!) as long as it isn't entrails or bugs. I don't have to like it, though, or eat it twice!

Like the Space Needle in Seattle. Only tourists go there.

Then you don't want to go to Texas for their annual rattlesnake roundup.

For me the worst is liver...liver of any variety. It smells absolutely delicious when it's being cooked. You get all set to eat a fabulous meal and then, well... once it's in your mouth the texture is abhorrent. It defies description.

You guys are funny. :)

I don't care for Okra but here is my opinion on most of this. Some types of food have very specific cooking techniques required for them to taste good. Brussels Sprouts are a vegetable that are often cooked to the point of wicked bitterness.

Rotating restaurants are notorious for not having great food. There isn't room for a decent sized kitchen in the centre of the thing, so most have a kitchen downstairs somewhere and food gets sent up in an elevator or dumbwaiter. I have been to some quite good buffets at a rotating restaurant though.
