Well, let me put my "Swami" hat on and gaze into my crystal ball.....

I see raw fish in your life...and rice. Lots of tuna and salmon!

That'll be $2 for the reading....thanks!

As you know chitterlings very popular here in the south. But I've never eaten them. I've heard people using a potato in the pot to cut down on the smell...don't know though. I think they're just going to stink... My gradmother use to fry them but sorry, I couldn't tell you how they were... I didn't wont nobody's chit-ter-lings..

My dad use to eat all that stuff before he passed. Pigs feet, pig ears, pig oysters. I'm sure if you named it he ate it, lol.

most people that were adults during the depression are gone now (my parents were kids), but i'd bet many would talk fondly of chitlins if they could, and the peculiarity of that damn smell.

humility has no bottom when you have to provide for a family.

I hear ya, Tom. My Dad was born in 1907 and my Mom in 1911. My Dad was the son of a very prominent Doctor, so hungar was never an issue in his life. My Mom was raised in an Orphanage, and knew some very hard times growing up. I studied and learned how to live off the land when I was pretty young, learning ways to prepare and cook insects and other foods that are not commonly eaten by westerners. I think it would be impossible for me to go hungry unless I was in the open sea with no means of catching a fish. Put me anywhere on land and I'll find lots of food. Most of it wont' be visually appealing, but surprisingly, most of it tastes pretty darn good when you're hungry.

I own two books on Entomophagy, and have tried many types of insects. Deep fried grasshoppers are my favorite. Very nutty and absolutely filled with protein. Remove the legs, as they can get caught in the throat, but that's it, beyond rinsing them well. Fry them crisp and salt them. Yum City!

i think i could eat bugs if it were chunky enough, not too gooey, and you got rid of the spindly bits: legs, antennae, and such.

The favorite part of Tarantulas after frying them, is the abdomen. It's supposed to be very nutty flavored and gooey. That's one I have never tried yet. Crickets are great when fried, salted and a little bit of red pepper flakes added. Crunchy and delicious.

Ha!, you're supposed to remove the legs before cooking them! Otherwise, they can choke you.

If someone else will eat one before me while I watch, I'll eat anything they do. I've found some pretty interesting stuff that way.

I won't eat brains any more. I've eaten them in the past, but they have an outrageous amount of cholesterol in them, so I'll pass on them now.

I will eat most anything chitlins included(love em) but i draw the line at bugs. if i had to to survive thatd be one thing but as a snack no thanks. Now back to chitlins best way ive had them is rinsed out with a garden hose(the old style narrow nozzels work best) boiled in water,onions and garlic then thrown in a cast iron skillet(must be cast iron) and sauted with more onion and green peppers. serve with hot sauce. If you can cook them outside it wont stink up the house though your neighbors may not like you.
