I'd love to extend an invitation to everyone on Healing Well you'd enjoy adding their thoughts to our topics each day. Yes, we have our Koffee Klatches in both the Fibromyalgia and the Chronic Pain forums but around here we're all family! It's a short time we can forget about our pain and suffering and have some fun. Most days we laugh, some we reflect and other days the topic will bring back wonderful memories we can share. We all love to tell "our story" and the rest of us love to hear it. Its what friends do. The only rule here is no mentioning of the "P" word...(<whispering> for those who aren't sure the "P" stands for pain> ssshhhhhhh)

And since food is our most favorite topic, what is the weirdest thing you've ever eaten? The would be something you ate on purpose even though it was very unusual.

I was going to say smoked octopus but then I remember the sea cucumbers. We used to puck them off the beaches at low tides and take home quite a few in a 5 gallon bucket. They are a slimy, warty "tube" , for lack of a better word, that just lays there on the sand when the tide goes out. You need to know what areas they live in and when the tide will be low and gather them up. I used to clean them...oh, that was fun! <yucky> You pick them up and cup open one end of the 'tube' and squeeze out everything inside. Sort of like a toothpaste tube. Then peel off the outside skin and lay open flat. You end up with a nice thin piece of pure white flesh. I dip in beaten egg, roll in seasoned cracker crumbs and fry in butter. They tase like razor clams...<drool> But to look at one you would not think of it as a food.

How about you? What's the weirdest thing you've ever eaten?

  Dear Chutz,
 
     My husbands Father made "allagator tail, Babydoll!" "Try it, yea!" So I did and it was delicious. Then next day my husband took me to St Augustine (honeymoon) to a seas food resurant on the cost. !!He ate something it was still wiggling... I lost my cookies!!! So, I didnt try that one.
 
      Funny, I cannot believe I didnt recoganize the "nausa, appetite change, tenderness and weight gain". My youngest was ready to come in to the family! I wonder if she will have weird food tastes when she grows up? smilewinkgrin

Ok Dani...that just about made me toss my breakfast! I can handle the alligator but I do NOT eat things that are moving around on my plate. <shudder>

I guess I asked for it, didn't I...
