Before "they" get shorts in a knot about words in quote... comes from a CLASSIC Disney movie.
So I have 2 stores that are not too far away but not on "the way" for most errands.
One is Produce Junction... a no-frills, semi-bulk store with excellent products, selection, & prices. Stopped there for sweet potatoes for Sunday.
Right next-door is a place called The Meat Stop. Very nice meats and good prices. Bought a D&W "dinner ham" for $1.99... EXCELLENT. When I'm in the area, always stop in to see what they have. Store's a bit quirky... often has meat/poultry items that I would say geared toward more "ethnic" cooking (like 5lb bags of chicken feet)... if that word is allowed?
O am NOT someone who YUCKS anyone else's YUM, but saw something today that kinda makes me lean in that direction! I picked up a package of what looked like maybe Italian sausage. I take reading glasses off my head, put them on my face and almost THREW the package across the store. It was NOT sausage!! Labled bull P I Z Z L E... use your imagination... 3 of these letters are in the English word. A MAJOR OMG moment!!
It's quite a delicacy on the prairie (we raise a lot of cattle here) -- we call them "Mountain Oysters"!
I've not eaten them and probably never will!
View my blog:
NO... NOT "oysters"... the OTHER part that's closely connected to them!
Yes, and there is something called bu**lly st**icks for dog chew toys...EWW!
Cautions include: Excessive use may cause gastric upset! You think?

Yep dog chewies - there's a brand called pizzell sticks.
Having said that, I really wish I hadn't read this during lunch....
THAT I have never seen - well - I have seen them attached to the bull but never in a grocery store.
When DS was small and we went to the big town - once a month trip for groceries - he would spend his time in front of the meat section looking at pig ears and pig feet, beef tongue, other "delicacies." I will never forget the time his 9-month older cousin was with he. He grabbed her and said, "Come on! I gotta show you sumthin." LOL She was appalled!
Does this hat make my butt look big?
My dh liked pickled pig feet and mountain oysters.
I learned not to turn my nose up too quickly when my FIL cooked. Not only was turtle sauce piquante fabulous but debris (pronounced "day bree") was great and it was made from squirrel, possum, and any parts of other animals normally discarded. Having said that, I can't see myself knowingly consuming testicles.
N u t for me Lolllllllll!
However, I have had cow brains, fried. I visited a friend's grandparents for the day and they were 'cleaning' a just slaughtered cow. OMg, it's a wonder I didn't have nightmares.... won't go into anymore details; aackkkkk!!!!
I have a funny story for you.
My dad was a huge joker. He loved to kid anyone who would fall for his silliness. My teenaged "city" cousin was visiting one time & when she asked what's for breakfast, his reply was "brains & eggs." She was completely disgusted.
It wasn't true, but still 40 years later, she doesn't believe me. She insists my mom cooked & served brains & eggs. Not MY mom.
Well, I suppose it makes sense not to waste any part of an animal that has been slaughtered for meat. It is just, how on earth would you cook that animal part? And how do you make it palatable?
Well, here ya go cocok:
ROFLMAO...yep, I've just seen them attached to the original owner myself.
That would be quite a surprise if I saw that in the grocery store. Now I've been in local Cuban Carniciera's, they have every part of the pig for sale.
Life is a great big canvas...throw all the paint on it you can.
I think its now illegal in the US to sell cattle brains for human consumption.
The prion that causes mad cow disease is found primarily in the brain and spinal column. They don't know for sure how mad cow spreads between cattle or from cattle to humans, but, better safe than sorry, the brain and spinal column is not sold for human food.
