Head cheese. And head cheese thoughts.

So, no offense to my gracious hosts, I decided to go another route.

I realized that a 40 minute drive (each way), coupled with aforementioned shoe removal, coupled with not knowing more than three people total at said party...
Well, we just said fuck it.

Well, and the Mr. isn't feeling well at all.

We went out with Blondie and Mr. Blondie to get our raw fish on at Saji-ya. I freaking love Saji-ya.
And now that they have a roll called the Incredible Hulk? Well, I may never go anywhere else.

Freshest damn fish, gloriously boozy cocktails, generally good service...
It turned out to be a lovely evening all around.

We had a great time. And I got to keep these on during the whole experience. Seriously. No one thought they were covered in shit or anything:




Maybe at the next party I am invited to I will share the tale of the recent day I spent with a pig's head in my front seat: (Don't look if you're timid):

Yup. That's a pig's head. Turns out you can buy them for $7.99 at the asian/latino market.

And yes, you can make head cheese with them. And yes, head cheese has everything to do with head, nothing to do with cheese.

Yup.

Sorry you asked?

Me too.

Happy Sunday.

Gwen said...

So are you really making head cheese? Or was the head for something else? Like exacting revenge on the VPPKPAFO?

Jon said...

Seriously, what CAN'T you do with a pig's head?

McGone said...

That poster on your wall rocks. Did you buy it? Make it? Get me one for Christmas?

Lollie said...

Was the potential head cheese in the garbage or does one just transport such a thing in a glad kitchen garbage bag (or two)?

I had a student that wanted to make head cheese the other day.
So I got a pig's head.
They also had cow penis for sale at the same market.
And no, I'm not making that up.

Yup.

Nice boots! And sushi sounds like a better plan.
I'm chuckling at the suckers who might have scrolled down thinking "oh come on...there's no way she had a PIG'S HEAD in her front seat". I knew better, so the picture came as no shock to me.

I mentioned the cow penis to Dcup and her camera turned on by itself and a pre-roasted chicked danced across the room.

Your place sounds like home.

Sorry, I read this and had to leave to look up what head cheese actually is. Now I'm back and I can say with authority: yuck.

A cow's penis? Was it a strap on?

I thought cows were female.

Just wondering.

Happy you had fun by not going to the party!

Suddenly I was craving Saji-Ya (love that place, and haven't been there in ages). Thanks to the pig's head photo and head cheese comments, though, my appetite went away. Ew.

Anyone who drives around with a pig's head in their car is worthy of admiration.

I love love love sushi. It may be my favorite food, at least right along side tacos and pizza. Now if there was a taco pizza sushi roll, I don't know if it would be delicious or terrible, but I'm pretty sure I would have to eat it. Maybe I'll go invent that right now.

Head cheese is alright. I prefer liverwurst.

metalia said...

I'm strangely drawn to the pig's head. Are you going to post a "making of"?

MommasWorld said...

Hey, I had a pair of those boots. I better go check my closet. he.he.he.

Love the sushi not sure about that pig head. Looking forward to hearing what you actually did with it.

Nature Girl said...

This all sounds a bit too scientific for my liking.

I love a bootwearing pig head toting gal.

My grandfather made head cheese once, just to do it. And no, I didn't try it.
