My mother would be jealous

Yep that's Tripe waiting to get cooked for lunch the other day. It brought back many childhood memories - there's nothing like that smell (it pongs!). The finished product was nothing like my mother cooked but I still couldn't eat it!.
(Sorry Mum - nothing against your cooking but I never did like the stuff).
For the uneducated Tripe or
"guatita" as it is called here is cow stomach. Everyone seemed very excited about having it so they must love it. I was wondering how Mark would cope with it but he ate it because he said it was cut up very small and cooked in a sauce with potatoes.

I didn't know there was such a thing, all I had heard was 'don't talk a whole lot of tripe'
