Offal is what it sounds like.....Awful!  Tripe and onions were my Dad's favorite but when I went to the butcher's shop with my mum, the look of it would make you turn and run.  We used to eat calves liver and onions, but now I couldn't.  It's hard enough to eat a steak.  Veal was a staple too until I grew up and found out how they bled baby calves to death to have veal and then I just couldn't.

I love veal.  It's so tender and yes, while it is young cattle that are used, it's generally done to thin herds of those males that will not be used for breeding. 
More barbaric in older times, but much more the way of the industry now.

Love oysters I guess that's from living in Maryland and New Orleans again where you can buy them fresh.

 deep-fried or out of the shell raw...

I love all kinds of fish...

Haven't tried octopus or eel but willing to.

Even snake.

When I was a kid about 10 or so, we took a 4H trip to the slaughterhouse...can you imagine doing that today? They had us watch while they took a sledgehammer to the cow's head and explained where to hit the cow...awful!

LOL, we went to the dairy farm...it was about the same as we watched the milking process and the separation of calf from mother was wrenching.

I once worked on a demolition crew...we worked to take down a slaughterhouse...after something like 40 years defunct, the smells were still there...ugh...
I made a penny a brick cleaning and stacking bricks on pallets.  We clamored all of the downed structure, no hard hats, no safety harnesses, taking down walls by hand...I think I was 15...those were the days, when kids could earn a buck and OSHA had no idea what was going on, LOL...was OSHA even around in the 70's?

Watching what I eat these days.  I've always loved fish and will stay with that for the holiday...turkey won't be in the table for sure...


Don't think I will even accept plates of it...and if I do Bigum will love it...

I love turkey but I don't think I want to cook one this year....still thinking on it.


Taken...when we were kids we had to pick corn, berries, etc.. by hand for hours on end.

I've never touched an oyster..................could be because my brother told me that it was really snot and that was enough to stay in my mind forever.
