    Well now that you mentioned it, the cartoon for today was the Manatee with sideburns and shades. I loved it.

    Up here in Michigan when they reported on your wayward Manitee, they had an Elvis reference too.

    I found an oriental cookbook and a French cookbook in the free room at the dump last weekend. Yesterday I was reading from them to my classes. The French one has 3 different recipes for cooking brain. One for blood sausage. A brioche crust with 7 eggs and a pound of butter. Ha!

    I watched Anthony Bourdain in Paris the other night, and he was served blood sausage and brains. He raved on about how good it was, but yeesh, I would have a hard time with that.

    I have an iron stomach and am willing to try most things (shark, rattlesnake, squid) but brains? Uh uh. That's how people get mad cow disease.

    I remember my mother telling me that when she was pregnant with me, she ate brains and scrambled eggs every morning for breakfast. Must be why I am so smart!

    I wouldn't eat brains now, mad cow notwithstanding, but we ate them occasionally when I was growing up. My dad liked them, so Mom cooked them.

    Mom once sent oldest sister to the little corner butcher/market with $1.00 to buy brains, telling her just get a dollars worth. Little did she know brain were on sale, 10 cents/pound. Yeah, my sister came home with 10 punds of brains!

    Can someone tell me what brains taste like? I'm not a big fan of the organy tasting meats (although I love pate--but I hate fois gras...too rich! My husband LOVES haggis). I remember being in England and seeing a billboard for a butcher that sold "brains and beef." I think I have a picture of it somewhere...
