    Don't be too impressed, I didn't know what I was eating until late in the meal. I thought I was eating beef stew and pork ribs. The warthog ribs I really liked, similar to pork ribs we get here, but more flavorful and meaty.

    Frogs legs. Ate them on a dare, and by George, they DO taste a lot like chicken! lol

    Now, thought I would love Blue Cheese dressing because I like cheese. I was very, very, very wrong.

    Frog legs. I ate them. I was 12. I was a victim of a father who was hell bent on making sure his daughters tried every single weird food discovery during you roaming around young days, and then the ones from when he was in the Army.
    Then add on whatever else you can think of, yup. Most of the time we had no clue what we were eating. Well, it's hard not to notice you're eating a pig's foot. So I guess some were pretty obvious.

    I love that dressing. MMM
    Not because I'm a cheese fan though. Because it isn't what Americans would consider a typical cheese taste.

    Oh, need to be humbled here. In high school I used to help my GFs family raise rabbits for food.

    Once we made sweet-and-sour rabbit and asked our friends to try it. We only told them what the protein was after everyone told us they really liked it.

    Hey! There’s a hare in my lo mein!”

    I think that's why I can't eat rabbit now.I was staying/working at a remote property years ago.Every night we were served rabbit done different ways.Once a fortnight the workers went to the pub for dinner and beers.A Chinese couple did the cooking there,I was really looking forward to some beef and pork dishes.The horror on the workers faces when we hit the pub and read the menu'sweet and sour rabbit' was priceless.I stayed one more week at the job then headed back to civilization and real food.
