No tongue or chicken foot or cow foot for me. Just didn't like the taste. But oxtails, pigtails, pig feet, yessiree buddy, I love it! Especially with pigeon peas and rice. Or pig feet and ears in souse, really good. I haven't had any of them in years.

texture - medium/fine, porosity - low/normal, elasticity - normal
co-wash - NaturelleGrow Coconut Water or Marshmallow Root, Slippery Elm Bark & Blue Malva Cleansing Conditioners
LI - KCKT mixed w/ SM C & H Curl & Style Milk
DC - NG Mango & Coconut H2O or Chamomile/Brdck Root

Sealers - Virgin Coconut Oil, Avocado butter, Aloe butter
Ayurvedic treatments - Jamila Henna, Sukesh, Aloe Vera Powder, Hibiscus Powder
.




Tongue just seems weird to eat to me because its intimidating looking at a whole one at the grocery store and that image is the only thing I can see when thinking of eating tongue. And I think of the rough cow tongue mooing, I am quite weird I know. I do hear it is tasty but my boyfriend doesn't even eat, he just wanted to prank me. I probably would have liked it though if he were able to actually trick me into eating it.
Life twin, if you come to NY, we can have tacos de lengua with plenty of salsa verde, salsa de aguacate, and crunchy radishes!

I really want to make lengua adovada/enchilada.

Somebody from IT supposedly removed some virus from my computer that I didn't know I had. Now everytime I try to go to Google, it crashes the Internet. I need Google to research where to go on my next vacation. It may have to wait till I get home. Darn.

Oh FFS. It's 10.10pm and the plumber is still here trying to get the boiler working. I have hot water but no heat. He's been here since 7.30.
Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
Strident carnivorism [not a word, I realize] is such a turn off. I mean we live in a society where meat eating is the overwhelming norm, so why the need to shout it from the rooftops?

I'm not talking about casual recipe sharing, etc. I'm talking about the in-your-face stuff, which is not at all uncommon.

Those of us who abstain have some pretty serious reason for doing so, and most carnivores know this. Every day we are affronted with messages that say we are out of step with pretty much everyone, and we bear it pretty well, considering.

But that's not enough. Oh no. If just one vegetarian speaks up, they are usually handed their hat for doing so. And on a regular basis there are unprovoked "I dare you to say otherwise" declarations of how great meat is.

I guess this bothers me because I am not at all a strident vegetarian. I also live with a meat eater. We respect one another's choices. It's actually not that hard.

Anyway, meat eaters, yeah, we heard you. A HUNDRED ELEVENTY BILLION TIMES. We get it. Can you please STFU now? Thanks.
I need to figure out what I want to do with my life.

Umm, I just like being an omnivore, that's all. I love vegetables, and if I had to pick meat or vegetables, it would be vegetables without a doubt, but I'm glad I get to enjoy the full spectrum, which includes animal fats and gelatin.
Sounds like something my mother would ask. I can't get anything new past her.

This is so true:

That's part of what I love about ATLA. This is a show that says "If you're a girl, you don't need to like feminine things to be valid and awesome! And conversely, if you enjoy being feminine, you can be just as valid an awesome! Really, you can be a girl however you want!"

And I would also like to point out that this show does a magnificent job of showing how awesome guys can be too. A lot of my awesome male friends are frustrated by male gender roles…the fact that they are called "wimpy" if they don't like sports of "gay" if they hang out with female friends. The unfairness of the patriarchy hurts them too, and I hate to watch them go through that ********. I love the diversity of male characters we have in this show…the way Aang is so childlike (well, hell, he IS a child…) and obsessed with his crush on Katara (boys can be romance-junkies too!) and how Sokka can be so overly masculine sometimes, but so traditionally "feminine" at others ("I'm so glad I got this bag, it matches the belt perfectly!") Avatar is just gender-awesome all the way around. You can be a girl however you want, you can be a guy however you want, and in the end, you can fight alongside (or against) people of the opposite gender and take them seriously. GOOD STUFF.

When people ask me about it, they mostly want to know if I'm vegan or veg. When I say "veg," I can see the wheels turning, as if they're thinking, "Oh, okay, she's not totally insane."

Thanks for articulating the issue so well, w~h.
My sons' school has this program called Pound the Playground. During recess they can choose to walk or run the track for a chance to win prizes. After they go a certain distance they earn a submission to a drawing for the prizes, no limit on submissions.

My older son has been obsessed with this for 4 years. He has given up most of his recesses to this competition, and has won nothing. It's not so much the prizes as he just really wants to win something.


My kindergartener won the weekly drawing today. . .

I've considered going vegetarian because I have a lot of stomach problem when I eat beef. I cramp up really bad. And I used to be allergic to chicken... I would break out in hives and get super itchy.

People should just live and let live as far as food choices are concerned. I'm an omnivore, but I don't give my vegetarian friends a hard time. Their preferences don't affect me personally. I don't eat a lot of beef or pork, for both health reasons and because they are more expensive than poultry. I'm also lactose intolerance, so I can't eat a lot of dairy either. I've gotten grief from some people over the dairy issue because it's not life threatening. I would rather not eat some cream based soup than get gas, painful cramps and diarrhea over pleasing your ass. How does my dietary needs affect you? People suck.
