The strangest thing I didn't necessarily eat last year

Brace yourselves.

On November 9th, 2007, I took these things:


Turned them into this stuff:


And made a few of these:


They were pretty good. Grinding your own hamburger meat is always preferable to buying that nasty stuff from the supermarket.  Although, given the chance, I just go to the Swiss Pork Store in Fair Lawn, NJ, and buy some of their freshly ground beef, which is simply the best.

Anyway, on November 17th, 2007, the kitchen started smelling prit-tee funky.  We searched high and low for the offending organic matter, which was clearly being consumed by micro organisms, which were in turn creating tiny but smelly micro organism farts and stuff.  We finally found the source of the odor:  the garbage disposal.

The people at Insinkerator claim that you can put just about anything down their disposals.  Who am I to question this.  However, when you put fat trimmings in there, and you kind of ignore them for several days, you apparently get this:

Disposal_eggs1Eggs over easy?  It took about 20 minutes to figure out what this stuff was, but we finally settled on those fat trimmings.  Week old sitting in the disposal stinky weird fat.   Oddly, the fat trimmings seemed to bond together over that week.  I think additional experimentation is in order.  Let me know how that works out.

No, I didn't eat it.  But I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little bit curious.
