Anyone from a jurisdiction that recognises the corn dog as the state bird
Not just a corn dog but a double dipped bacon wrapped foot long corn dog! (YEAH BABY!!!)
PS- Noooo not the Polar Vortex!!! Anything But the Polar vortex!! Actually what I was thinking is that it would suck to get winter in September. And we were promised that Canada was to become sub tropical soon!

Actually most grocery stores these days have a butcher counter, don't they as well as the prepped meat in the cases? Except Walmart and Target most around here do and I don't like to buy mystery meat from them anyway. I prefer a real butcher shop but the only I've found here is rather expensive and the one time we did buy meat from them, a couple of good looking filets special thing for Dad's birthday, they actually tasted like they were horse meat. I kid you not. Those were the absolute worst steaks I've ever had and they cost like $25 a lb too!

what makes me wonder sometimes is the logistics. take Safeway, for example (they work 24/7, which comes in handy at times): the only grass-fed beef there comes from.. Australia. Undoubtedly a good quality product, but it's from the other side of the globe! Why there isn't a single piece of locally grown organic grass-fed beef available in local stores? vegetarian-fed, yes, which may as well be corn, soy, any plant-based animal food, not necessarily grass; what the actual?.. even whole foods doesn't seem to carry it. if they do, they hide the fact very diligently.

I could never understand the aversion to escargot. People who eat shellfish have no such problem with abalone (a big snail) or conch (another big snail) or whelk (small snail). Perhaps it is because they live in water and the mucous is not quite as evident as with land-dwelling molluscs.

I would like to try snails, but I have never had the opportunity. Well, I've seen them canned in the grocery store, but I suspect that using those as an exemplar would be a bit like someone deciding whether or not they like Mexican food by eating at Taco Bell.
Like most anything, escargot can be made quite pleasing to the tongue. All you need is for them to be swimming in salty butter.

We even go to great lengths to make the saltwater versions more tasty.

Well except for these guys:








A lightly seasoned tempura batter and a quick dip in the skillet, then onto the plate and enjoy! The leftover bits from processing them get added to a real good New England chowder.

Mmmmmm . . . . . . . . . . tasty!!

My epicurean goal in life is to someday have the opportunity to try those. I love shellfish, particularly mollusks, and I just have to believe that geoducks are the Holy Grail.
