We need to order some calamari when we are together. That stuff is wonderful! So is pistachio gelato. It's one of my favs!

Who the heck eats horse?

I'm with you on the haggis and black pudding. Yuck.

I thought you used to put carob chips in your granola / trail mix. :)

Dar, I've been meaning to try calamari for a long time, but never seem to remember when I'm out! We'll put it on our list of things to do when you are here! ;o) As for horse it's popular in some cultures. I don't think I could eat it though.

Katherine, nope those are cocoa nibs! :o)

My assistant, Heather, is a huge pocky fan...and I have gotten to try her strawberry pocky. It is good. Kinda like a short bread twizzle stick dipped in strawberry icing.

That's an interesting list - but just out of burning curiosity, what's wrong with pistachio ice cream? I wouldn't go out of my way to order it, because I'd rather eat chocolate.

That sounds good Dar!

There is something about pistachios that sort of weird me out. I'm not sure how to explain it...I'm with you on the chocolate myself! :o)
