Me and Emu
That s*it is NASTY. S took me out to dinner last night, wanted to make me feel better and get my energy level back up. Took me to "Bilbo Baggins" in old town Alexandria. Nice place and you did feel like you were ina hobbit hole-the ceilings are low etc.
I'm pretty into trying new stuff and I saw "emu" on the menu and had to try it-im game! S looked at me like I had 3 heads. he does this when I try something he things is out of the ordinary though he admires my ability to try new things.
The...meal came, mine looked yummy, smelled odd but looked yummy. boy was I WRONG WRONG WRONG. I thought I was gonna loose my cookies with the first bite! S looked at me funny and asked how my meal was, I choked down the bite and drank some water (ok a lot of water) and said it was "different" and tried some of the veggies-they ROCKED!
I figured maybe it was something that had to grow on you and I had a big plate heaped with this-dead bird, so I ate another smaller bite. oh my god it was worse. I told S at this point that it was "gamey" but unique, not like anything I had ever eaten before. I was not lying-it tasted like I was eating the backside out of a running unwashed hippo.
we are talking more gamey than a deer that has been run. ok take the slight gamey taste of rabbit and magnify it oh 500x *im not kidding* and that is Emu.
I was soo hungry (being under the weather makes me hungry) so I ate all the shroomies and other veggies but I could not force myself to eat all the...nasty stuff. I felt so bad, I could not tell S how bad it was.
but im telling you DO NOT EAT EMU-GROSS
So what foods do you find NASTY
