Thanks, But No Thanks Thursday - Offal Edition

Guess what day it is? That's right! And It's time for this week's TBNT Thursday feature. The dish so horrid... so putrid...even I would not eat it.

There's something about the 1972 Retro WW Program and flabby organ meats that just go together like milk & cookies! Kidneys, hearts, livers, gizzards and many other types of animal entrails are "legal" and are actually encouraged to be eaten on a weekly basis.

Simply Elegant Sweetbreads


Sweetbreads are the ultimate organ meat. They are the thymus gland or pancreas of a young animal, especially a calf or lamb. Considered a delicacy to some, it is very important that you do not confuse your "Sweetbreads" with your "Sweet Bread".

Very. Big. Difference.

My friends: There are not many things on this Earth that I will not eat. But baby animal glands? That just ain't gonna happen. Thanks, But No Thanks!

Elegant and sweetbreads do not belong in the same sentence!
