    He's Muslim, so he can't participate in any religious part of it, but I'll drive him around to see the lights (some people in our town go OVERBOARD!!!), and I'm sure he'll hear the music, we'll have a tree, presents, stockings. Fa la la la la.
    Count your blessings!

    I had the best Pumpkin Pie ice cream! The pumpkin ice cream was the base, and it had bits of pie crust, and whipped topping swirls in it! To Die For!!

    anything cooked in a sheeps bladder no matter what the filling is, just is something I can't eat.

    Actually, traditional haggis is cooked in the sheep's stomach, not the bladder. Does that make it more palatable?

    I must confess that I've never had haggis. My brother made some for a family reunion that I had to miss since Bjorn had kennel cough and couldn't travel. Everyone there tried it and liked it. One sister who was adamantly opposed to trying it ended up taking some of the leftovers home (In the interest of full disclosure, I think he made an Americanized version.)

    I can't imagine why you tried it in the first place. Personally, lutefisk battles for first place with svid and balut on this list of things I will not eat, starvation be damned.

    Haggis, on the other hand, if you think about it is really nothing more than a largish sausage.

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    Is anyone doing Christmas baking yet? Maybe I should check out the recipe thread...

    Also can we post links to blogs? I found an incredible food blog I want to share with you'all.

    AND how do you'all clean your LCD screens? (moniters/tv's) any cheapo method so I don't have to go out and buy a specific $ product would be very nice.
    I very much believe in rescuing animals, not buying them.

    There were several factors that led to the lutefisk episode:
    • I was young (early teens), and had never heard of lutefisk.
    • I was taught to eat what was put in front of me.
    • An aunt prepared it for our family while we were visiting.
    • My gag reflex was more easily supressed back then.
    As I recall, one sister liked it; the rest of us were less than enthusiastic after the experience was over.

    I was seven when I was given a lunch of whale tongue (we lived in the middle of Rhodesia, so I'm not really sure how that came about), and while I was always a docile and obedient (aka. terrified) child, that was the last time I ate what was put in front of me *shudder*.
