Ehhh . . . I don't know.

Andrew Zimmern's reaction leads me to believe otherwise.

Ohhhh .... God that sounds tasty.

I haven't had roast chicken for ages. I think my next food shop may have to include a small chicken for me and Carrot to share.

Pologirl has a new group of friend who have decided to hold social evenings trying unpopular/weird/fad foods. last week was Limburger cheese. (She couldn't taste it beneath the raw onion and mustard, but it did smell horrible). Next one will be a fermentation special with kombucha and kimchi, apparently.


My dad gave a piece of Limburger cheese to a sausage dog (dachshund/wiener dog) we used to have to see whether she would eat it. She rolled on it enthusiastically

Im astonished. Roast chicken one day = chicken sandwiches for work/chicken curry/chicken soup .... they almost make themselves from the first one.

With two flown the nest, there is finally, occasionally, some leftover meat from a 6lb chicken.... But Thunderboy eats enough to feed a small nation of non-swimmers....

But that's one man's opinion. Remember millions go out of their way and spend big bucks to eat it.

I wish them well. I'm still interested in tasting the chocolate-covered durian, but I think I'll wait until I'm good and wasted to give it a try. HA!

But then you miss the impact of mother nature and loose the reason to get wasted.


Yeah yeah, what's a reason, and why do we need it?

Eh, I don't get really ripped very often, but I do smoke every day.

If I don't smoke at least a little every day, I have crazy frustration dreams - can't find something I need for a meeting, can't get to the meeting because the roads are closed, can't notify the person I'm supposed to meet that the roads are closed because the phones are out - that sort of stuff. I wake up terribly stressed and upset.

But with a little THC in my system, all of that goes away. I don't know if I'm not dreaming at all, or if I'm not remembering my dreams . . . either way, a little bud every day is a great blessing. I wake up rested, calm, and in a good mood.

As for eating durian, I think I'd need to be really buzzed to summon the nerve.

The durian is quite tasty. The texture is very smooth and creamy and it tastes slightly sweet.


The fragrance of the fruit when you start to open it is pungent and not sweet, not terribly appetizing. It is very weird.

Adding chocolate... I don't know.. You will be missing a significant part of the experience, but not a great one.. Go for it!

Ok, ok, ok! I did it!

First impression - onions. Second impression - chocolatey onions. Weird.

Didn't make me wretch, but it wasn't particularly tasty either. I suspect that without the chocolate, my reaction would be quite different.
