escargot


Snails...

From the garden to the table in only two weeks.

Or you can keep them as pets.

(I think I'll call this guy Melvin)

  9. I love escargot and have thought about making them, but after reading that Chow Hound recipe/article, I think I will just eat them when dining out!

  10. Having had pet chickens which then became dinner one horrible summer, I have to go with the "no eating of named pets" rule...

  11. no thanks, you can keep them in the garden where they belong! =)

    the french would just find my american tastes so plebeian....

    oh well, c'est la vie!

  12. I couldn't possibly eat a snail - so I'd definitely be keeping Melvin as a pet! Keep us up to date with the fate of Melvin!

  13. Okay, so, these are the ones you eat? Because I'm sure you can't just pick up random_snail_01 and fry him up for breakfast, right? He is kind of cute, too -- I believe I would definitely have to name him and call him my very own. :)~

  19. I think that you have definitely found some of my favorite things! I wish I could have been at that BBQ. How about if we do a little trade... some of your yummy mixed grill for my Roman gelato? I wonder if Fedex would do that... A big hello to Melvin!
