Thread: Chicken Feet!

    Default Chicken Feet!

    I was totally surprised to find packages of chicken feet at the local
    supermarket yesterday. I had not seen them in years. I bought one. The
    kid at the register was really grossed out by them.

    I separated them into two packages and froze them. They make awesome
    chicken soup/stock/broth all that gelatin and such.

    It is nearly impossible to find any meat or poultry product here that
    would not be part of the Mexican culinary culture, hence the dismay at
    finding them.

    You are fortunate, and like you I enjoy watching the reaction
    of some of the supermarket kids at the more esoteric stuff
    that I buy. The last one I had to explain was sweetbreads.
    But did you mean "dismay" in the last sentence??

    Sorry, you meant the "dismay" of the supermarket kid.
    Yeah, I can just imagine.

    LOL! You got the quote wrong though.
    It's "Danger, danger, Will Robinson"
    And I always thought that Penny was cute too. heheh
    She was about my age at the time.

    I saw a package of chicken feet in a grocery once. It freaked me
    out....looked like a package of giant spiders. heheheh

    Also, long ago, I worked with an old country fellow. He liked them. His
    wife would simmer them for soup broth, then he liked to sit there and gnaw
    on them for a snack.

    I'll bet you meant "my own ecstatic joy that they. . . ." '-)

    dismay |dis?m?|
    verb [ with obj. ]
    cause (someone) to feel consternation and distress: they were dismayed
    by the U-turn in policy.
    noun
    consternation and distress, typically that caused by something
    unexpected: to his dismay, she left him.

    I was thinking more in terms of surprise than joy :-)
