I have some fairly simple rules about food.

    1. If it crawls or slithers - forget it
    2. If it is cooked alive - forget it
    3. If is an endangered species - forget it
    4. If I'm supposed to eat it alive - forget it
    5. If I've seen it alive - I won't eat it dead
    6. People who eat blue meat are modern day cannibals and not welcome at my table

Kidneys, like everything else, has to be cooked right. Overcooked it is like leather, done right it can be quite nice.

Come on Julie come up with some India food. I love Mexican FOOD BIG TIME but I'm game for something different. some of this food I can't even spell and don't want to feel like fool.



I like Thai food better, it's spicier than Indian food and more refined.
Been a while since I ate Mexican food, like it a lot though!

That's true. Best place to eat something is in its country of origin I guess.

Funny how McDonalds changes the menus like in Hawaii they even serve rice and I have heard other's like Japan and so on put a twist to the meals. I don't stop there often I can't handle the grease and salt. I wonder how Taco Bell does in China? :)

Really their isn't nothing gross about it from what I have had. It was really good. In San Francisco you can find any kind of food, we are not short of places to go to have it. You could eat 100 or more years in different places and never run out of places to go.

Curry is ok but for some reason it seems to upset my stomach if it's too much. Mexican food won't, it must be something in it.

I am with you on that Bill. It is all about how you can cover up the taste and not overcook it.
She was a killer cook and evenso, I have lot of her things, just not her recipes. Sniff, but then, nobody would eat them except me and my Father.

Well my mother sure must have, it was like leather when I was a kid. Might have used them for sole repair in the shoes too. LOL Oh she was a good cook but she had a few things that she cooked that was hard to take.

Here is one for you people in the UK, we had a cereal I was told might have come from the UK called shreds as a kid. It was made of oats, what we had seemed like you could put a spoonful in a bowl and it drank up quart of milk. (not really but seemed that way). I was told the recipe came from the UK but was made by G.L.F in Up state NY for years also and to me was darn good.

Yeah, like Liver for My Mother, shoe leather would have been more tender and tasty, but Dad liked it, so theirs no accounting for taste...

Well for someone who was raised on raw milk and like so much it's your choice. But maybe it's your system not to drink it. But it's funny though how your system tells either you don't need that or stay away from some foods.

As a kid I drank full cream milk straight down from pint bottles. I couldn't do it now. I only have semi skimmed in my tea these days. I don't think I'm lactose intolerant or react to dairy foods, but I just don't like it any more.
