Felaine, you mention "desperation food."  Every time I look at an oyster, all I can think is that the very first human to eat one of those things must have been on the verge of death by starvation.

It has always amused me that so many cultures have turned "desperation food" into ethnic delicacies.  Birds' Nest and Shark Fin soups?  Eww.

Sounds good to me Pat.

I guess no one would like this recipe, other than me.

Yes, snails. Years ago I heard words like "S car, go." In my childhood mind I thought of a special car in science fiction stories. Only later did I learn it was snails. Not just snails, but eating snails.

One invasive species I will NEVER eat is snails.  They were imported by a French vintner because he was homesick for them.  Ugh. 

D'ruther eat anchovies, and all they are good for is fishbait.....IMO.

here - you can eat to help the environment, focusing in invasive species!  Wild boar, and Asian carp come to mind.  I've read that you can eat Kudzu too.

Randal, glad to hear you've got your appetite back. I used up all my leftover turkey from Thanksgiving making Tinga de Pavo (a variation of a Mexican chicken dish called Tinga de Pollo). I got the recipe off of various YouTube videos. You can get the videos here. My favorite one is here, but I only use about 1/2 the chipoltle chiles. Those things are some powerful ju-ju..

Pat, I have the frozen sweet corn for your soup recipe, but no chicken or turkey. I do like corn chowder with potatoes. Did up a stir fry last night with a bunch of veggies. My appetite is back.

I LOVE the aroma of freshly sliced or grated ginger!  Makes the kitchen smell lovely no matter what you're cooking (or who f*rted).  It also tones down garlic in dishes that call for it.
