Chicken giblet congee and how I spent Sunday

Some readers know of my many alter egos. For example, on Friday I posted on my other blog about the limitations of diagnostic tests, especially serology tests. In the past I’ve also posted about offal on Dr Offal. Tonight though I’m posting about giblets here on Yummy Lummy. Possibly my least known blog is the one about odd movies.

I really like giblets. I have happy memories of Mum cooking giblets. On a cold night, Mum’s chicken giblets and steamed rice was really comforting and warming. I would tell people about the meal and I usually received a negative reaction. It’s no surprise when I posted a photograph on social media yesterday about my purchase I received mixed reactions. One of my social media friends compared chicken giblets to cat food. Lucky cats I say.

After breakfast, I called Dad and wished him Happy Father’s day. I went for a walk on the cloudy Sunday morning and shot some photographs.

After the walk I went and put some diesel into my car and then went about preparing dinner.
