I must admit...I do like to dip some bread in roasted pig drippin's.

Them chicken feet reminded me of the VooDoo Chicken Stock that Kathleen mentioned a while back. Gonna have to try to make it some time. 'Course, these days our local grocer has taken to labeling chicken feet as "chicken paws"......Lawd have mercy!

Since its a family and friends situation, if you happen to know someone doesn't like what you picked you can use that to your advantage :) I like the boiled okra idea a little too much- if I'm still in the game for the 5th round I don't want to be stuck with that one!!!!! Lol!

We also ruled out lard because of the high fat/calorie content. It would just be too unhealthy to eat enough of it to make it worth having it in the game. Loving the ideas tho!

What is tripe?
If I'm not mistaken, tripe is the lining of a cow's stomach. It is used in Menudo (a Mexican stew or soup).

Somethin' else that just occurred to me...I was enjoying a big glass of milk and Pepsi.
(Don't holler at me... I know it is loaded with HFCS)
Mrs Hoot says that it is gross....but it truly ain't. It tastes similar to an ice cream float just not as sweet.

It is a great cure if you had a little too much to drink the night before.

It's my picture, and I'm gonna remember your suggestion.............


Hey, how about Tripe ?
Used to have to eat that when I was a kid............. ugly stuff !

I love sauerkraut! I like it cooked, and I like it cold straight from the can.

I get a craving for pickled pigs feet every few years, but I just buy a small jar because one or two are all I want. They are good now and then, but not something I want a lot of. They would be great for your challenge because they are ugly.

The only time I've had to handle tripe is green tripe. This is what the family with which I lived fed their Newfoundland and Basset Hound. I will spare you the details (and my reaction to having to cut it up and feed the dogs). Given my experience with green tripe at the age of 16, I will never buy tripe to cook it. I have since fed green tripe to my dogs on occasion, but it was frozen and, well, that would be TMI. This is a food forum.
