Thanks, But No Thanks Thursday - Have a Heart!

This week's TBNT Thursday recipe is a special one. In fact, it was a cover-girl back in the Spring of 1973 for the "Dollar Stretching" issue of Weight Watchers magazine. It's name? "Warriors Stew"

The cover shot looks innocent enough. It's just your basic stew, with some celery and mushrooms thrown in there. Lots of seasoning and some bouillon, of course. Even a little lemon juice for good measure. But can you guess the secret main ingredient in Warrior's Stew? Go ahead, take a guess...


ONE HEAPING POUND OF CHICKEN HEARTS!!!!

I can't help but wonder: how many chickens must a warrior slay in order to produce an entire pound of hearts? Quite a few I would imagine. Oh--And apparently chicken hearts go really well with a nice baked apple on the side (see photo).

Thanks, but No Thanks!
