A Year of CrockPotting had to get a sheep’s stomach when she wanted to make authentic haggis, and the local butcher was able to help.

I’ll have to mosey on up there with the excuse of doing a post on it! (You may have to find some hunter friends, Erica, if it’s too late for you to get your license…)

And Profane–I’m totally with you on veal. I’ve never understood what people find so great about it, even aside from the animal cruelty angle…I’d rather have something grown up, medium rare, and still bloody…

So long as you do not serve veal. YUCK!

I wouldn’t know where to get them, and as you may have guessed, I’m not in a big rush to try them.

(Unless there’s secret info about that phrase too.)

But don’t people in your neighborhood do the whole “rocky mountain oyster” thing? So this recipe wouldn’t seem _too_ weird to them.

So, you can try the Piggly Wiggly, but I think the meat counter people will just laugh at you!

Tom, your stories about life on your family homestead do make you sound much older than you are. And Notorious, I think you’re right about the attractions of historical romances. It’s so easy to flatter readers into thinking they’re forward-thinking, cutting-edge gals if you set a character in the past!

Susan: Since Joe quotes The Simpsons, I’ll go all Life of Brian and ask, what have the Romans ever done for us? (Although I take your point about indoor plumbing–it really is a marvel, isn’t it!)

Joe–that’s one of my most favorite Simpsons episodes ever, natch!
