Random Thoughts

Here are a couple of random thoughts and observations from the last couple of days...
On the freeway off ramp to get to my house there is a Hooters. I drive by it at least once a day and I often stop in front of its entrance while waiting at the light. Let me tell you, it makes for some interesting people watching. I've seen my share of motorcycle gangs and couples on dates (who would want to take their dates to Hooters?) walking into the restaurant. The other day as I pulled up to the light I saw two horses 'parked' in front of their door waiting for their owners to get done with dinner. That was a first!
One small commercial business in my neighborhood has a sign indicating that it is for Sale/Lease.
The owners however got clever and added a 'p' in front of the word 'lease'. They must really be desperate :)
Tomorrow I'm cooking cow tongue for the missionaries who are coming for dinner. I guess is only weird for those that have never had it. I've grown up eating cow tongue or 'lengua' as my family calls it and think of it as a rare treat. When Todd met my family for the first time that's what we ate. It didn't scare him off. So, what's the weirdest food you've ever had?

I'd love to hear your comments.

I'm not sure I have a weird food; I really can't get over the fact that you eat cow tongue and like it. And why there were horses outside of Hooters. This all seems like a weird dream after eating cheese or something before bed.

Cow tongue? Really? ew... lol. I don't think I have any food's weirder than that. Though I have heard that cow tongue is good... I am not sure it would make it in my mouth.

Hmm... I have been thinking about cooking cow tounge ever since college. My room-mate and now best friend is always telling me I need to make it because she says it is delicous. I almost bought it once but couldn't swallow the price they wanted for it. The strangest thing I have ever eaten????.... Well, maybe to some people it is normal- but they serve rattlesnake here (which tastes like a yummier version of chicken) and a type of cactus which is cooked and eaten like a vegetable... Do they eat similar to that in Texas? I wonder....

I can't even look at a snake, let alone eat one. I think that rattlesnake is definately weirder than cow tongue.
The only strange thing I've heard of (but never eaten)in TX is road kill chili.
