The Boys and the Duck








My teenaged boys have discovered a new place which has captured their interest. It's the Asian Pacific Market. The love to go there and check out the products, and, if possible, purchase treats from the in-store deli.
The other day they went there and AJ bought a roast duck. The whole duck and nothin' buThey brought it home excited as all get out to eat it. Especially, AJ told me, the head.

Yikes! I hot-footed it upstairs so that I wouldn't witness the dreaded event. I, for one, am not an adventurous eater and didn't want the sight of him eating that duck's head in my mind. They took some pictures, which I am sharing here.

Afterwards, they said it was delicious. AJ told me that he "cracked the head open like an oyster" and ate the brain. Ugggh! Am I ever glad I was upstairs!

Oh my goodness. That is so disgusting I must say. But I have found that boys will be boys no matter what you say, so let them enjoy the simple things in life I guess. I would have totally joined you upstairs!!

All I can say is "Eewwww!!"

My sister and I think alike...I was just going to write "Eewww" and looked and saw that she already had! It's so great to have you back in the blogging world! I've missed you!

Thank goodness I have a girl! I can't even eat fried chicken b/c it has bones. Good thing you hid.

I would have been with you upstairs too! This totally reminded me of "A Christmas Story" where they bring the duck out to the table and then chop the head off right there!

Well, Rachel, AJ says that's exactly what he did (probably because he's seen that movie too!) and then, to quote him, "I gnawed on the neck!" As Mel said, boys will be boys!!

I like to think that I'm willing to try new foods, but I think skull cracking/brain eating is a bit much for me. Glad your boys had fun though.
