I've never see that. Could you be looking at a chop with the loin on one side of the bone and the tenderloin on the other side?

andy, did you ever watch the "two old fat ladies"?

oops, sorry, it was just "two fat ladies". two old cods that loved to put bacon, butter, and lard on everything, especially offal. the english are famous for combining lean meats such as the leaner cuts of pork or beef, with fat and offal.

i happen to love offal, pork, and fat. i've yet to try "lights", though.

It's classic over here, some of the chops are alongside the kidney and the butcher slices the kidney as he cuts the chop - most people over here love it, but I ask the butcher to keep the kidney.

Sorry, miniman. That's a new one on me. Thanks for the education. I think I'd skip the kidney too. I might try them separately but not eith my chops.

I can't stand marshmallows, whipped cream and bananas. They all make me gag if I eat them.

There's a few ingredients I don't like. Most mainstream is cilantro. I'll use it in a dish to please the DW but thats it.

As for a complete dish, I'd have to say desserts. The DW makes the greatest Napoleon in the world (and yes, I will put it against any Napoleon out there) but sweets just aren't my thing.

I had no idea how many foods I dislike until I read this thread. Black licorice, organ meats, balogna, head cheese, corn dogs, cotton candy, candy corn, okra, fennel, parsnips, snails any thing over smoked, cheap lunch meats, lamb, mule deer but I like white tail deer, antelope , grappa, mackerel, canned peas, giblet gravy, spam. I'm sure there is more
