    I remember when I was real young and spent the night at my grandmother's. She fed me grits with chicken stew gravy on it and it was delicious! :)

    Springfield, being both the Capitol as well as a big college town, attracting students from around the world, should have quite a variety of off-beat foods.

    My Mother baked a goose, or duck, 4, 5 times a year for holidays. Wonderful to smell all the Czech goodies sizzling, baking, and cooking all at once, filling the house with indescribable aroma!

    Another reason I'm glad I eat plant based. This comes up on a forum I go to from time to time and I can't even think about it.

    Just thought of another food the "Rich & Famous" or just plain rich, might eat.............caviar. I remember watching the movie, Titanic, when the stars were having dinner and Leonardo DiCaprio said "no thanks, don't like it much" when a Server went to give him some.

    I love it but too salty for me now.

    I have had fish roe...plain and love that also but it's been a long long time.

    "Amn, CO, United States, 2 days ago

    Rescue some cows, sheep, goats, chicken, ducks, turkeys and deer from being destined for the dinner table. "

    I tend to agree with this poster. A dog is an animal. Just because we make pets of them doesn't make them any less animals. Some people are appalled that we eat beef.



    "Due to the multiple benefits from cattle, there are varying beliefs about cattle in societies and religions. In some regions, especially Nepal and most states of India, the slaughter of cattle is prohibited and their meat may be taboo.

    Cattle are considered sacred in world religions such as Hinduism ,Jainism, Buddhism ,Zoroastrianism, and others. "

    I wouldn't eat dog meat but if we had traditionally eaten it, I likely would.

    I had brothers who hunted so I have had goose, duck, partridge, and pheasant, and, while all of them were okay, I guess I would prefer chicken. Turkey is nice for a change, but I don't think I'd like to have it on a regular basis.

    I have a friend who has pet ducks that she loves. She would be horrified at the idea of anybody eating them.

    True but then you should become a vegan....I only eat chicken nowadays anyway. Don't think about it being alive.

    It's just that different societies have different opinions of what food is. To them, eating dog meat is just as normal as eating chicken is to us. I don't think I could be a vegan. I like a thick, juicy charbroiled hamburger too much. ;)

    Whenever a FFA or 4-H member raises a pig, from a baby status or a steer from a calf, to show at County or State Fairs, they already know where that pig or steer will wind up.........on the auction block, then to the butcher, then to the supermarket. It's a pet in the beginning, but the teens know where their prize pig or steer will wind up.

    A pet will always be a pet, but a pig will always be a pig. If it was not originally a "pet", and it's everyday actions were chronicled, especially it's eating habits, it could never have been thought of as a pet.

    I fed our neighbor's animals while he was overseas. He had two huge pigs. The larger of the two physically prevented the other from eating alongside it, and, urinating as it gobbled food, the other slurped it's companion's urine happily. A rather sickening, first-time sight for me.

    Well, Frank, being that I was raised on a small hog farm, we'd better not get into what hogs do and what farmers have to do to them (to protect their land). As for me, I'd much rather raise cattle than hogs.

    Without a doubt, there are foods that some people would eat here in the U.S., that other's here in the U.S. wouldn't touch. Not everyone is into sampling all foods.

    Where we live, due to the demographics of the area, there are numerous Indian, Tai, Chinese, Italian restaurants. Although, don't know how many of them serve the actual food from those countries. It's more like "American" ingredients mixed in.
    When we lived in Colorado and visited Wyoming and South Dakota, we didn't see all the "ethnic" foods like here. Again, due to the demographics of the areas.

    I hate turkey too dry for me regardless of how it's cooked. My o/h shoots game occasionally in our woods but not so much now he's become a pescatarian and doesn't eat meat any more , and I'm not keen on Partridge and Pheasant, way too strong tasting for me.

    I love Duck...love it... but like goose you have to ensure the grease is cooked off..otherwise it's too fatty... I eat chicken once a week because it's easy , cheap and readily available. I rarely ever eat beef these days unless I go out for a meal and I'll eat it as part of a Roast dinner... , otherwise I eat Fish or Plant based food...
