Tell The Truth Thursday

Welcome to “Tell The Truth Thursday” where the question that has been posted in my right side bar gets answered by me and you! Did you prepare your post and are you ready to drop your URL into the Linky so that we all can follow? Grab the thumb above linking it back to this blog posting and let’s get started…

The question this week is :

    What is the grossest thing you’ve eaten OR what do you eat that other people would think is gross?

I don’t really eat gross things. If I thought they were gross, I wouldn’t be eating them.


However, I know that I eat some things that other people would think is rather gross.

I have fond memories of very fresh bread smeared with potted meat.

There are also an equal amount of memories with little Vienna sausages cut in half on a couple slices of fresh bread.

For snack, there were always spicy and hot pork skins.

The food that I’m sure most people will find abhorrent is pickled pigs feet…real pigs feet. The meat is tangy, salty and tender. Oh, stop gagging. It’s yummy!

Although, I like all the foods above, I don’t eat them any more because I have a diet I try to live by – more or less. I no longer live to eat. Unfortunately, I eat to live.

I still think they are yummy.

of success in life
is to eat what you like
and let the food
fight it out inside.”

Crunch, crunch, crunch…

  • IMPORTANT MESSAGE: I am currently upgrading our entire system to make it faster and even more dependable. I’ve had VERY LITTLE downtime for over a year, so I trust you’ll be patient as we will probably experience some bumps and problems for the next day or two. LinkyTools is FREE, so I have to do all this work myself. I pray you’ll bear with me while I get this upgrade done. I’ll try to keep the errors and downtime as much as humanly possible.

Try coming back on Saturday and post your links!

Okay, so where is the gross stuff? 🙂 I loved those tiny Vienna sausages when I was a kid. And I still treat myself to a small can of Deviled Ham Spread every once in a while!

I love pork rinds. And even though I don't actually eat pig's feet, I do think they give cooked beans a lot of flavor!

Here in Mexico, we have our fair share of "gross" foods. My hubby and youngest daughter love udder tacos. I prefer cheek tacos. And the whole family loves menudo! 🙂

I LOVE the quote!! LOL!!

Yes, I did gag at the pig's feet… How did you KNOW??? Are you psychic??


OH, I have an awesome post I was going to link for the wedding last week, but since I was late anyway, I've got it pre-scheduled to post on our anniversary… *sigh* Hopefully I'll be spending more time in the community again by then. New computer, have some kinks to work out, then hopefully my editing workflow will start to… FLOW! ;D

I did a post but I am unable to link it. I keep getting a server error. I tried from 3 different computers… LOL! I hope it's a temporary glitch with our provider.

I have never been able to eat meat out of a can or jar. Apparently, I've been missing out on a good thing, LOL!
I love beets, my hubby thinks they are disgusting.

Hi! Thanks for commenting on my BlogFrog post on your forum. It looks like lots of ladies enjoyed the networking opportunity. Im following yours too, so I look forward to your posts.

I used to work at a convenience store (first job) and I was always grossed out when people ordered pickled pigs feet or pork chitlins.

You know I eat a low carb diet. Well, the pork rinds is the one snack that is low carbs and I can eat that. So to me…….they aren't gross. I never did care for potted meat or the pig's feet. But I am usually open to trying new things.

Chitlins are gross. It may be a southern thing but either way they smell bad, they look nasty. I tried them when I was younger but you couldn't pay me enough to eat it today.
