New lunch!

We had a new experience yesterday at our house. In the morning while we were getting ready for our last day of language class, I was washing out our water bottles at the sink in the kitchen. As I was washing them out I noticed some kind of meat sitting on the counter beside me. Mami Gollita came into the kitchen and I asked her what it was. And she said, "meat....what do you think it looks like?" So I said, "tongue?" (with a disgusted look on my face) and she started laughing and I realized I was right.

Then we got home from language class at lunch time and the tongue was frying on the stove. Fortunately, we have to provide our own lunches so we were having peanut butter and jelly. As we were finishing our sandwiches, Mami Gollita brings over a plate of tongue and rice for us to share. Wasn't that so generous of her??? So Shaun ate most of it and Gina and I each tried a small piece just to say we've tried tongue before. It was not the most pleasant experience of my life.

So one question... when you taste the tongue, does it taste you back?
