Jet Lag

Well, I survived airport hell and am back at Point A. There will be a short delay whilst I catch up on sleep, laundry, and other backlogged stuff. To amuse gentle readers in the interval, here's the strangest thing I ate while away – a slab of fake egg.

Strange egg

It sorta looked like a fried egg, except this horror was steamed, uniform in texture, and came in thick slices, like refrigerator cookie dough. A puddle of ketchup improves many things. Not this.

Strange egg minus two bites

What's the strangest thing you've (intentionally) eaten while traveling?

Oh, I love the fake egg for a second I thought it was a post about knitted eggs. It looked so fake, surreal.

In my travels, I have eaten conch (it was okay), turtle (in Mexico), snails (France). I am sure I have eaten some other strange stuff.

And yes, ketchup does save a lot of food,lol.

What the??? I can not wrap my mind around that freakazoid phony egg-product!! I think I have a sock yarn that matches your fake egg. Weirdest thing I ate while traveling: fresh fried pork skin (ick) and alligator gumbo. The gumbo was tasty. It really did taste like chicken. The pork skin was revolting.

Welcome home!

While in Spain, I ate some yet to be identified sea creature brought, I guess, out from the Mediterranean. It tasted uglier than it looked.

I ate haggis in Scotland! Not too exciting, but it's all I've got.
