foods i like that most people don't
Yeah, I eat this stuff regularly and it's never even made me sick, let alone killed me:
Raw Oysters! I love the salty, marshy, seafood taste of a raw oyster when I crack one and suck it down my throat. You don't chew those things. You just swallow and enjoy the aftertaste.
Raw Eggs! I like to crack three of four in a glass, whip them up with some salt, pepper and Tabasco Sauce and drink them in one or two big gulps. That's a breakfast of Champions.
Sweaty Wimmen! Never mind. I'm not going there tonight.
Raw Hamburger Meat! Okay, I'll cook the outside a little bit, but I like the middle raw. Cow's blood tastes good to me.
Garden Tomatoes! I like to pick 'em, wipe 'em off on my shirt sleeve and eat them like apples. I enjoy the juice running off my chin.
Sourgrass! If you don't know what that is, I can't explain it.
Hot-Assed Barbecued Pork! Ribs, butts, sidemeat or chops. I like it when I break a sweat eating it while it falls apart on my plate.
Sardines in a Can! Find yourself on a fishing trip when you're hungry enough to eat raw skunk and discover that sardines in a can are all you've got to eat. They are delicious in the right time and place. You'll lick the juice off the lid and drink the gut-oil out of the tin when that's all there is.
Cold Pork & Beans Right out of the Can! It's ambrosia when you're out of sardines.
Shit. I'm gonna stop now. I think the wookie-pills are getting to me.
Oysters: nope. Sea boogers.
Raw eggs: only if I feel like hurling.
Sweaty wimmen: check.
Raw hamburger meat: only if I feel like losing a little weight to e.coli.
Garden tomatoes: yup. Especially if they're grape or plum tomatoes.
Sourgrass: never heard of it.
Hot-ass BBQ pork: nope. Prefer curry if I want to sweat. But BBQ pork is okay on a sandwich.
Sardines: check. Never understood why people don't like 'em. The Mrs. won't even let me open a can when she's in the house -- I have to wait until she goes away on a biz trip before I can eat sardines. Hint: try them on toast. Yummy.
Cold pork & beans: check.
If I may add one more: crispy-cooked corned beef hash (must be crispy, and preferably cooked with a little HP- or Worcestershire sauce).
What the hell is sourgrass?
I am definitely going to vomit now. Hmm...I think I'll read this post whenever I want to lose 5 pounds.
sourgrass - south Georgia roadsides (and my front yard) are covered with it....looks a little like clover and smells heavenly when you lie in it on a warm summer evening watching the sun set.
Gourmet pork and beans around here are cold right out of the an with a little green onion and bell pepper...
Had forgotten how much I liked sardines - my dad and I used to eat them when fishing, and that is a fond memory :)
Red sourgrass. I don't see it as much anymore. They probably spray the roads for it now. That's a good chew. Sardines in tomato sauce are okay, but I like that mucousy mustard.
God damn, man! It's no fuckin' wonder your gut rumbles.
how could you dilute the taste of good sardines like that...?
Ick! No kisses for you! Not when those lips have been THERE!!!
Glad to see you're back "up" and running!! (hee hee)
See? Other people get to go fishing with their Dads...lucky Kat...;-)
My personal favorite thing to eat that makes other people run screaming and gagging around here is a piece (hunk, actually) of raw steak, after it's seansoned to be cooked. God DAMN that is GOOD. I feel kinda like a cannible eating that, though,'cause I'm a Taurus.
Hell, when I worked on that dairy farm in Jersy, I used to take steak (cut into strips for easy handling) to work for dinner. When the cows would start pissing me off, I'd take a hunk of steak into the parlor, wave it around, and announce to the cows that this was what happened to the LAST cow that kicked me. I also used to like to take containers of Coffeemate in there and illustrate to them exactly how much I didn't need them or their shit...lol. (Yes, I am bent-headed. You would be, too, if you were me...)
Raw oysters - yum, yum!
Sweaty women - uh, no thanks.
Sourgrass, raw eggs, BBQ, pork and beans - nope, nope, nope.
Raw hamburger / steak - bring it on, as W would say! Anchovies - yup. Toast with mayonnaise instead of butter - oh, yeah!
Excuse me - I'm really hungry right now. . .
Well, I'm a Southern gal, so I can appreciate the sourgrass and the raw, right out of the garden tomatoes.
Of course, being a Southern MOUNTAIN gal, I'm aso a fan of poke salat, if it's scrambled up with eggs. Just the thought's enough to start Stoney's gagging.
I see I was wrong about you and oysters,
I must have you mixed up with me...I remember if this if I find another recipe. :)
Whoops,I have no idea how that extra *if* got in there...made the sentence more interesting though..lol
Sourgrass? You eat sourgrass too? I'm not the only one who walks around parks with a few stems in hand...?
How cool is that? A yank who eats sourgrass. I thought that was an Aussie thing. I've been too sheltered.
Don't you find it amazing that it's the FOOD post that garners the most responses?? The site meter said you had 1616 visits a day....and they all want to talk about your eating habits!
What's the 'official' name for sourgrass? i want to find out about that stuff! I used to eat it growing up like mad. Its the stems with the bright yellow flowers? it tastes sour. anyone eat honeysuckle?
