    Thumbs up Close enough...

    My DD's college friend fixed corned beef and cabbage over the weekend in celebration of St. Patrick's day.

    Her 6-year-old finished his dinner, looked at his mother, and exclaimed,

    "Mmmm, Mommy, I love this Irish chicken!"

    Kinda like one day when I came home from school and dinner smelled delicious! It smelled like Sunday dinner!! I asked my mom what was for dinner and she said 'beef'. Later, as we were finishing dinner, she asked how everyone liked the heart she had prepared....BEEF heart!!! I don't think I've ever seen five kids race to the only toilet in the house faster than that!

    Beef heart and home made noodles was always a favorite at my house.

    In this day and age we have WAY too many people, WAY too sensitive about WAY too many things and taking something that only deserves a "ho hum" response as a slight against themselves personally.

    When we were stationed in Germany we were traveling and stopped at a local restaurant. The daily menu was printed on colored paper and we got the 500th printing of the menu I think. So we took a chance on the local daily special....When the very LARGE plate was set in front of me and I discovered I had ordered boiled beef tongue.....I still shudder at that one..hubby got a great laugh over it. He had ordered the fresh fish.

    My MIL once served us a roast of very lean meat. It tasted ok, but was a bit different. We found out after the meal that the meat was cougar. No thanks to tongue, heart, etc. In fact, now days I seldom eat beef at all. Just an occasional Wendy's burger.

    My vote for Irish Chicken too. My husband had a beef tongue sandwich years ago and loved it ... told him I was happy he didnt have leftovers. But these days, I'll try anything - once..... as long as it's not moving!

    When my daughter was young, she would only eat chicken. One day I made a beef pot roast. She stated that what was on her plate was not chicken. I told her it was just the "dark" meat. She ate all that was on her plate!!!
