The little hard bits of connective tissue or bone that turn up in ground beef can trigger squeamishness. You just have to not let it get to you.
    Gotta say, from my calamari-eating days, that I LOVE the little leg pieces!

    I have also in the past made giblet gravy when I cook whole chickens. So maybe if you make a soup out of the organ meats and thicken it up with some sort of approved Primal thickener, it'd be a lot like eating giblet gravy? I dunno. I DO know that I LOVE giblet gravy.

    I'm not opposed to trying something new. And I love to eat the fat off of a ribeye, and I'll even crunch the cartilage knuckles on chicken bones. I think if organ meats were properly prepared so that they weren't too dry or bland, I could eat them. May have to get some liver from the store sometime and try it out.

    Well, livers come for free with out grass-fed beef and pasteurized pork, and our farmer loads us with tons of it. The only problem my husband for some reason draws a line at eating liver because of his cholesterol (just a weird thing) and daughter never tried it yet. So, i am the only one eating it, and you all know, a separate meal is hard to cook sometimes.

    I probably should just cook a liver dinner one night and see how it goes. I am sure my husband at least will be Okay when faced with the plate.

    Anyone going on vacation (holiday?) this summer? We have to vacation in the winter due to the nature of my husbands business - and I'm REALLY ready to get away for a bit! Share you vacation plans so I can live vicariously through you! We will however, be spending most weekends at the lake on the boat. I guess thats lots of tiny little vacations isn't it?

    It certainly is. My main vacation plan is to get my hubby home for the summer. Then we will see.

    We're taking the kids to a hotel that has an indoor waterpark and is on the beach (lake Michigan). There's also a nearby children's museum. Just looking to get away and keep the kids (2 and 4) entertained without being overwhelmed. We leave 1 month from Thursday!

    We are planning to go for 2 weeks to Russia, Moscow and St. Petersburg. That's if the paperwork comes through. It's going to be expensive and stressful. I wish something goes wrong and I have an excuse to go anywhere else. Alas, my daughter and my husband never met my grandma, she is just shy of 90, and I haven't had a chance to say good buys to my other grandparents before they died, so I am under the obligation to go, no matter how much I hate it, and how this is not going to be a vacation at all. Oh, well, I hope I shall live through the experience and it is just one year of vacations wasted on Russia.

    He is a professor and works in the States. For a variety of practical reasons, none of them particularly interesting, we stayed behind in Canada when he got the job. I have applied for my green card, seeing as the kids are grown up and the practical reasons no longer apply, but since I applied about the time I was hitting rock bottom in terms of exhaustion, jumping through all the hoops involved has been an extremely slow process for me. I hope to get at that better as my energy improves. I've been saying that for a year or so, but something always comes along to blow my plans out of the water.

    Ennyhoo, seeing as he's a professor, he usually gets to come home for a nice long summer break (although he teaches online courses, he can do that from here). But now they are holding him back for more and more administrative tasks. *sigh* This year has been worse than normal, with various things keeping him away from home more than usual. He drives home for long weekends, as it's doable, but this year not so much. We are getting pretty fed up with living apart.

    Because I was born there, I loved it with an unquestionable love of a child, and then was put through the wringer of the horrid times, to see it all destroyed, every hope dismantled, and my life how I imagined it just crashed when I was 16 and just about to start living it. It's kindda hard on a teen, so I hated, the way young people do. Twenty years down the road, I am foregin to everything there, so it's a hassle of organizing the trip and making sure my folks have a good time, when what I need is a long lie down on the beach when everything is taken care of and paid for in advance and I can relax and not worry that someone is going to rob us or hassle us because my innocent kid is speaking English to my innocent husband on the street. I am afraid. I still have Russian nightmares at times. I am afraid they won't let me out, from their hell to go home.
