First time ever, today I ate haggis. It was very nice. Like a softer, better seasoned black pudding.

i will admit that i have always been curious about haggis, but the only kind available around here is canned, which i suspect is not haggis at is best.

of course, i haven't had black pudding either, so i would have no basis of comparison....

hm, it turns out that scrapple, which i have had (and indeed recently made) may be an american cousin.

although i just made mine with trimmings from a pork roast. these days, offal is about as expensive as the regular meat, if you can even find it.

You just haven't been in the right places. I have several places here that sell liver and chicken hearts cheaply ($1 or so a pound). Speaking of which, I need to make liver and onions again. Mmm....

Today, I tried doing the Warrior II pose in my pre-workout yoga routine. I need more hip flexibility, but I think I did a good job.

chicken livers i can get, beef liver occasionally, only place that sells pork liver is 99 Ranch.

i wonder if supermarkets are now getting meat more cut up then they used to. i remember the supermarket carrying beef and lamb kidneys, beef hearts, tongues, all kinds of things....now it really takes some looking.

Mouse, do you have a traditional or even 'Mom N Pop' butcher near to you? Those guys are usually the absoloute best for everything meat related, and will sure be able to get you some tasty tasty offal for your own cooking / Jeffrey Dahmer exhibit.

NEW THING TODAY: Spent a couple of hours wandering around the park with what I kept referring to as a 'particle accelerator' strapped to my back, doing weed killing for the grounds team. Okay, so new, but not much fun - plenty hard work, actually - but I did get to drive a John Deere 'Gator' for a very brief time, without crashing it. I ain't afraid of no weeds!

Anyone else do anything new today, even if it was boring? Learn a new kidnapping knot? Bang a friend you've never banged before? Stuff a kidnapped friend with chicken livers and lamb intestines, before banging them, cooking them and eating them?

there is a german deli-butcher store, not real close but i shop there occasionally....now that you mention it, they always have things like bones for dogs, so i should ask....

new things, new things...i did make an expedition to the building's basement in search of possible yoga space...does building-spelunking count?
