It is nothing like that. Anticuchos is a dish native to Peru and some parts of Ecuador. The origin of the word is probably Incan rather than Latin.

Some people cannot stomach it because of what it is made from. But I am fine with it since I don't recognise it when I eat it. It is BBQ'ed beyond recognition, very tasty, and the aroma is very strong. And the juicy and spicy taste of it just makes me reach for another stick rather than a glass of water.

anticuchos....that actually sounds great. I tried cooking beef heart once but since I didn't cook it for anywhere near 10 hours, that was prolly why it didn't turn out! That is definently a long slow cook but I'll bet it's tender. I like things on skewers! Made chicken satay a lot when our exchange student was here. My Thomas, unfortunately is a meat, taters and gravy type of guy. The look on his face when served something "different" is priceless!

Can't be much worse than Tom's work boots stuffed with dirty socks! Have you grown mushrooms? I have always wanted to try but it seemed like a lot of work and I can get portabellos anytime at the store. I do wish I could grow the morels but alas they are strictly wild and must be hunted and collected!

It might be pretty hard to find tomato plants this time of year and growing from seed is a bit of a job in itself. You can grow Patio tomatos or shrub tomatos indoors OK both of these need no support and will produce a lot of tomatos. Don't try any vine ones and Use a good potting soil. do not use garden soil. You can get potting soils for veggies that are vary balanced. If you want to fertalize you can use any tomatos fertalizer but you can go organic as well and use an organic fertalizer I prefer organic myself. I grow ginger indoors only and have not tried garlic but might just give that a try as when ever I put it in the garden its never any good for me. I have my lemon thyme in the house I need that all winter. Its great for respetory problems. I am bringing in my Lavendar this year. I grow everything in 12 to 14 " pots or 15 litre buckets. I am not sure what a 15litre bucket would be in gallons likely about 8 gallons but a 5 gallon would do as well. This is rather long but if you have any questions about container growing or growing indoors please as I used to run a container gardening email list.

lol, no I haven't tried growing them before. They have so many kinds available now like shiitake, oyster and portabello.
