Lamb's head? Don't you eat the eyes for good luck/virility in Greece?

If I saw that on my dinner table, I would be barfing! Nasty!

The pig head was the left over ,it was a half little pig (about 7pounds) cooked in the oven, very tender and tasty ,yum.

If you don't eat the head, then why do you have to cook it and let it appear on the dinner table? I really don't want to be reminded of what animal I am eating!

Aunt Karen says it is a pig head!!!
Uncle Bill thinks it is a piece of bread. Keep in mind uncle Bill has too big of an imagination.

Aaa...I forgot to mention,
the cheeks from the pig head are really soft and delicious,my dad Nick, ate them.

We do not eat the pig eyes,but if it was a lamb head, we would eat also the brain!!! (gives you a lot of interesting and smart thoughts,haha)

P s. generally we eat all the animal except the eyes..is anyone vegetarian ?

Arthur,

Had a deer heart dinner at our house a couple of weeks ago ourselves. Our boys have raised pigs for shows and for our table so we have seen some of this. The local hispanic culture even frys the skin for "churros" and eat them like potato chips. Mara knows. They also eat the feet.

Our grandmother Alice Jenkins from Seattle originally from Scotland made head cheese in the pig head after boiling it for a long time. I didn't eat any that I can remember. All I remember is that it was a lot of work.
