“Who will join me in a dish of tripe? It soothes, appeases the anger of the outraged, stills the fear of death, and reminds us of tripe eaten in former days, when there was always a half-filled pot of it on the stove.”
--Gunter Grass

Again with the tripe you might say (known as callos around these parts). Well, I happen to like it. The following was dinner yesterday and it was an especially good one.

And a fall themed quotation from Robert Browning…

I heard a sound as of scraping tripe
And putting apples wondrous ripe
Into a cider- press's gripe.

Although I confess to never having heard tripe scraped. I’ll look into it though – always up for new experiences.
