I've been tagged!

Awhile back I was tagged by Stepheny to write six random things about myself:

1. My middle name is Joy. :)

2. I love Chinese food!

3. I collect tea cups, teapots, and books.

4. I have naturally curly hair.

5. Thrift stores are my favorite places to shop. (Hobby Lobby and Michael's are other favorites.)

6. The strangest thing I've ever eaten is rattlesnake and alligator. We found the rattlesnake in our driveway a few weeks ago. The alligator came pre-packaged. lol!

rattlesnake?? yuck!! When my family tried it several years ago, I held to my stand and would NOT try it, even though I was in the presence of a very good friend who tried to use peer influence to force me to...I couldn't stand the thought of someone else eating it, much less ME!! lol...I hope that you liked it. Or...maybe I hope that you did NOT like it!

but for the record, I did eat alligator before...disguised as 'chicken', that uncle never let my sister & I live that down...oh well.

That is EWWWWWWWWWWYYYYYY! Ewwy,Ewwy~! I don't think I even want to try it!

Ruth Ann It seems like EVERYTHING is disguised as chicken! :P that is crazy, unless it looks like it, I don't fall for it! lol :)

I have eaten Alligator too! :) It tasted pretty good!

Ruth Ann said...

Steph - well, that happened years ago, and I learned my lesson! So...I'm not gonna believe something so easily again!!

Hmmm, rattlesnake... interesting. If it makes you feel better, I've eaten raw salmon, fried octopus, and (cooked) cow tongue. Yeah, I posted about that last time someone tagged me for this meme, lol. The responses were interesting! :o)

Thanks for tagging me! I'll try to get this done sometime this week.


Actually the rattlesnake did not taste at all bad [smile] one of my siblings cut it up and grilled it outside on the grill. :) It tasted more like smoke then anything. Since rattlesnakes have so many ribs, it was hard getting much meat despite the fact that the snake was around six and a half feet long.

Fried octopus, and cow tongue? Sounds "good" lol! :)

Those were interesting, Emily! It was fun to get to know you a bit more. :)

I love your middle name! It fits your personality. :)

Thrift stores are also some of my favorite places to shop . . . it is amazing what deals one can find there!

Rattlesnake and alligator!? Those are rather interesting things to eat . . . did you like them?


Well, as I mentioned above :) the rattlesnake tasted mainly like smoke. lol! I did enjoy the alligator a little more, as we breaded and fried it which turned out really good tasting. :)

Natasha said...

Ah, you've eaten alligator??! :) I would imagine alligator and rattlesnake to be a tough meat... were they 'chewier' than normal meat?! :)


Hello Natasha, :)

The rattlesnake was a bit chewy, but the alligator turned out to be very tender and flavorful. [smile]
