Ugh.

The Weekly Question has a story behind it that I would like to include in the question that I am going to send out.

Here goes:

One day, a friend told me about her trip to a nearby province that is known for its culinary arts and expertise. She, together with her family visited a cousin who got married to a wife from that said province.

Filipinos are being known for their hospitality so we could just imagine how  scrumptious the food served to them.

As this friend was well into her second serving of the very yummy and creamy lasagna, she happened to comment to her cousin’s wife (who cooked all their food) how the beef in the lasagna is so tender.

She got really surprised when her cousin’s wife relied that she did not use beef in the lasagna.

She used pig brains.

I would not say how my friend reacted so I  am going to  ask you this question:

If it were you in that situation, what would you do?

My answer:

If it was me and I was well into my second plate still alive, I will probably just eat the remainder of my lasagna.

Or when the hostess is not looking,  I will probably go run to the bathroom and try to maybe, force myself to retch whatever can be taken out of my system. Ugh.

I am not really choosy when it comes to food but now that I am not getting any younger, I want to be healthier and be able to eat the right food. Choosing the right food might do the trick and maybe the best diet pills to help me curb the cravings for sweets.

What about you? What would you do? Join me here in my Weekly Questions meme.

Have a great week everyone! :)

  1. Me too :( But if I don’t know that there is pig brain in the food, I still might eat it, as long as I don’t know. DO you think the processed meat food products have this?

  3. Ako din nung bata ako kumakain ako ng pig’s brains! But today… I dunno if I still have the guts to do it.

    Here’s my entry: http://imomonline.net/?p=820

  4. Mitch, naalala ko nga eh, nung bata ako nagluluto si Papa ko ng ganito, ala omelet naman. Pang-breakfast namin :D

    thanks for the visit.

  5. Thank you for answering WQ :)

    Have a great week!

  6. Kung ako yun? I’d probably take more hehe!

    I had fun writing about this. Heck, I always enjoy when I talk about food :-)

  8. Me too but then, you know, when I think about it, I feel like running to the bathroom. As a child, I just remembered, I used to have this food a la omelet, which my father cooks.

    Today is a different story though :D

    Thanks for the answers, Rachel. Hope you have a great, productive week ;)

  9. Hi Miss Julie! I have one interesting answer! Hehehe :) I would love to have a third helping of whatever’s in the lasagna :)

  10. I didn’t know that Cookie :D Good thing I am not that fond of sisig (anymore). We do have this often at home but its bangus sisig that we have.

    Mayonnaise? I think the consistency is a bit ok. I remember now, I have tasted pig’s brain too when I was younger. My father used to cook it with egg, a la omelet.

    Thanks for answering the WQ. Have a great week! Hope to see you soon :)

  11. I would have finished what was left on my plate (pikit mata nalang). :) I posted the rest of my answers.

  12. Did you know that one of the key ingredients in sisig is pig’s brain? Pinalitan na nga lang ng mayonnaise ng mga nagtitipid.

    Here’s my entry for this week (and last week pa) :)
