shootiniron... I can honestly remember crying when I was in the area of 10yrs old at the table when Mom made L&O!!!!! We weren't allowed to leave the table till we cleaned our plate off. Sounds like what you'd hear on TV, but in our house it was true! Ever since then I always said organs are made to use not eat! :-D But I have so many friends that love em, maybe Mom didn't know how to cook em up right!
I'll bet that was similar to a scene from Blazing Saddles.
“The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.” Jeff Cooper
I don't intend to hijack this thread. So a short story. When I was much younger than I am now, my Suisse grandmother used to make all kinds of thing for us kids to eat when we came to visit. Cracklin's were always good-it is the stuff leftover when rendering lard, pickled cow tongue, saurkraut, horseradish, boiled chicken feet, boiled duck feet, pearl barley sausage-a type of blood sausage, just to name a few. On mom's side of the family the girls were from Scotland and that is where Haggis originated, laddie! THE traditional dinner to celebrate the birth of Rabbie(Robert) Burns. Indeed, I have eaten Haggis, and I am a better man for it!
