Decisions At The Butcher

Hmmm...I can't decide what I want for dinner tonight? Is it the goat head or the cow feet? Damn! I can't decide.

Side note: This pic was taken last night. We decided on the fresh turkey, but I've tasted everything on that list except the tripe and cow skin. I've heard that tripe is good, but I can't figure out how one would prepare cow skin?

Yum Yum, right! :)

Have a great weekend all!

nml-
Come on. You have a Jamaican mother. You're sticking with the mangoes,huh? :)

I've tried goat all kinds of ways. My family raises goats in North Carolina. I like to play with them when I'm there and pat them. They just don't know that all I need is a grill and some curry. Haa haa! :)
I won't be going to SAfrica until next year for the first time. I'm looking forward to the trip. I would love to visit Kenya. Perhaps I will have the pleasure of traveling there one day soon. Have a great weekend as well. :)

I see Gizzard on there... what the hell!?!?!?

Stephen Bess said...

lol. Not your thing Stephen? I don't really like gizzards. I'm more fond of liver. I like my liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti. :)

Miss Ahmad said...

standing on the verge of becoming a vegetarian again this sign scares me to death!

i think me and meat are gonna have to break up...i don't seem to have the stomach for it!

David E. Patton said...

What a list I'll take the nech bones, cat fish, turkey, gizzard and goat

JenellyBean said...

Tripe is commonly used in my culture. We put it in pepper soup and other soups that we eat with FuFu.

Its good and chewy...LOL

Tu s. Tin said...

I think I would have gone with the turkey too...or the tilapia.
I guess goat would be like lamb, which is good, not sure I want the head though. food is funny if you know what it is.

Stephen Bess said...

Nikki-
Yeah, I'm not sure about the cow skin myself?? Will somebody pls tell me how that's good?

:her soledad-
Hee hee! :)

miss ahmad-
I'm not there yet. I'm not sure if I'll ever be. :)

David-
All I need is some curry. :)

JenellyB-
That sounds good! Do you know how to fix that or do you have to wait for someone else to fix it?

Rose said...

I saw some boiled chicken feet and that scared the sh*t out of me. Looked like baby hands....

Stephen Bess said...

tu s. tin-
Yes, I am always surprised at what I'll eat. Goat taste a great deal like lamb.

Rose-
Haa haaa! I can see how chicken feet can look like baby hands. :) Baby hand soup! That's funny!

Mrs A. said...

Stephen Bess said...

miss a-
Haa haa! No, I haven't had the tripe yet. :)

UARIDI said...

go for tripe it is yummy, especially with ugali (East African version of fufu!!)

Stephen Bess said...

Uaridi-
I'll have to see where I can find me some good tripe.

In chinese, there is an idiom about lantern made with cow skin, the implication is that as cow skin is thick and opaque in some sense, i guess, so no matter how hard you light up the candle, you cant see the light through it-- so if we say, especially grandma and mum will say, that someone is "cow skin lantern", this means he/she is stupid, inflexible....

Stephen Bess said...

lamkaho-
Welcome back. I've never heard that. Thanks for sharing that. Grandmothers possess so much wisdom.

Rose DesRochers said...

For some reason, I just lost my appetite.

Stephen Bess said...

Haaa haaa! LOL :) Sorry Rose.
