Chicken Tendons, Veins, and Red Spots

I was a pretty strict vegetarian for just over 3 years.  To my utter disappointment and disgust, I'm currently a practicing carnivore.  For lack of better words, one day I just fell off the wagon-- and I've eaten meat ever since.  It kinda bothers me because really and truly I don't like the fact that an animal has to give it's life so I may consume it.  It makes me sad to know that animals are treated poorly and inhumanely.  I mean, really, I don't need it to survive- I could very well and almost happily lead a meat-free existence.  But God dammit, I love a tasty cheeseburger or chicken strips occasionally.  Shit, how hypocritical is that???????    

Although I do eat meat, it is very limited.  When I make dinner at home, it's almost exclusively vegetarian and quite simple.  I don't like buying meat because it's expensive.  And I don't necessarily enjoy cutting up and handling something dead.  Dead.  It's very easy to forget- thanks to packaging and the help of a butcher.  Afterall, it no longer looks like an animal, right?  Right?  This heap of flesh used to have feathers (or fur/hair) and was once a living, breathing animal.   The other reason I don't like to cook meat? 

This:

OMG. Sooooo gross.
The other day, in attempt to eat healthier, I bought 3 organic, all vegetarian fed chicken breasts for $10.50.  Please, chicken killers, could you please trim off some of the yellow globs of fat?  Or am I the only weirdo who finds it absolutely repulsive? 

Now presenting:  The Red Spot...





Sorry for the poor quality of the picture, but hopefully you get the idea.  What is that red thing?  Sooooo gross!!!  So needless to say, I mutilated the poor chicken breast and cut out every single disgusting, tendon-y thing, red spot, and fat glob.  I swear to God that I wasted so much of the chicken.  And I feel bad for being wasteful, but I just can't eat it.

But the light at the end of the gross, veiny tunnel?  After I cut up the chicken into little pieces and cooked it, it was delicious.

  3. My wife has just decided to become a vegetarian. This past weekend, I had to take her to the Emergency Room so that a doctor could remove a piece of steak which had become lodged in her esophagus. That was really strange, because she doesn't eat like a longshoreman. She cut up her food and I presume chewed it before swallowing. Evidently, the situation was exacerbated by acid reflux scar tissue, which narrowed the tube leading to her stomach. So, no more meat. Although, she does realize the jokes she'll get when I tell family that she went to the hospital because she had a "piece of meat lodged in her throat."
    As for me, I'm sticking with cheeseburgers.
    For breakfast.
    Yum........cheeseburgers......

  4. Looks like a vein or spot of blood to me. Nothing to worry about, as long as you cook it to 165 degrees before eating. Everything dies. At least that chicken made someone happy. :)

  14. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
    this topic to be actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!
