Nasty Asian Food?

No way!!

I found a box of CENTURY EGGS at the local Filipino Food Store.. *happy grin*, and almost made David and Cindy green at the gills to think of PRESERVED duck eggs ..

Seemingly innocuous styrofoam box

Interesting read, especially the myth about the horse urine. I have never had a Century Egg and probably never will. The Pork Stroganoff and a Salad on the other hand...

Century eggs are great.

And does David expect any of us to believe that he hasn't been in a Texas honky-tonk or general store with pickled eggs on the counter?

I'm with David-bring on the pork stroganoff and salad. You can keep your nasty old green eggs-blech! LOL

I bet hubby is in hog-heaven with a wife that can make all kinds of extravagant meals......maybe that's why I'm still single...ya think?
Cuz you know what they say..."the way to a man's heart is through his stomach"....I always thought it was "under the covers" (slapping the hand)
But WAIT! I just cut myself down....cuz the thing is...I'M STILL SINGLE either way it goes.
Ohhhhhh snap!
Maybe I can find somebody that will love me for my scrapbooking....I mean,daaaaang...I AM GOOD AT "THAT"!
(giggle)

Has David introduced you to the Texas cuisine of Mountain Oysters yet? I'd take a Century Egg any day over those!

Hope you have a great weekend-Jeff
