Keep it simple...wrap in tin foil with some butter and a little seasoning, and grill over medium heat, checking periodically, and take it off the grill as soon as it starts to get flaky.

My grandmother used to make something called Spanish tongue.I remember liking it, but it was a large reason why I have difficulty eating meat that does not change name ( or recognizable form) from the animal to the plate.

Bad-mouthing us
This all by itself would be enough for me. After all you've done for her and she ha the audacity to bad mouth you...especially to HER parents? That would be the last time. I would so tell her take all of your stuff, don't care not my problem get it out of my house by "X" date or I'm throwing it away. I would never ever let her live at (or even stay really) my house again. You guys are so bad? Let them stay with their parents.

Sorry, not my call, just venting 'cause shitlikethis pissesme the helloff.

I kind of have my sorta own version of this going on right now. With all I do and have done for all these people, they can't come up with 1100.00 to lend me (between them) for like FIVE days? Really?

When I move I am not telling any of them where I am. I'm serious about that. Seriously, just one thing I did was pay off my niece's tickets/warrant/fines in OK so that she could get a DL here in WA, paid for the license, etc. When she first got here I paid to get all of her professional licensing stuff transferred/updated/etc.

She paid me back in payments, which was fine, she paid as agreed (her credit with me is very good) but still I helped her so she cold get her life together and now she can't manage even part of the 1100.00? Fcuk you. Nephew who OWES me tons of freaking $ that I've written off and who has the money won't even call me back because he knows I wasnt to borrow it and he doesn't want to part with it. Excuse me? I've paid your cell phone bill for three freaking years. I've given you food and shelter for years. I gave you a goddamn car.

THIS is why I don't like people.

If fiance gets fed up and drops her will she come back to B-N and move in with her parents?
It may breach some boundaries but can or should you alert Student Services? This is more than emotionally immature- the short version makes her sound unstable.
Actually sounds bi-polar to me. AND she is the right age for it to start to manifest.

I grew up with not knowing my favorite sausage was a blood sausage. Must have been in my 20s when my grandfather finally said it was blood rice and barley. Don't think I've eaten it since. Now it's a mental thing. And I LOVED that stuff! My mom can still get it at the Polish deli.

That's funny...I stick with kielbasa. I don't even like pierogi.

When my son was in his late teen's he had a part time job at some chain restaurant. He called me and said he had calamari and it was really good. I said do you know what that is and he said no. I told him and his reaction was yuck, I'll never eat that again. Now he eats sushi.

That sausage was SO GOOD, though! We always ate the czechoslovakian version in NY. I wish grandpa hadn't ruined it for me! I think he actually used the words (in his accent) "Coagulated blood". Thanks, gramps! But I like Kielbasa, too!:)

Welp. That was the last straw. My SIL called J about some high school AP paperwork that she needed to get the right classes. Tried to blame him for her not knowing where it is. She's moving out at Christmas and we're getting counseling. As you might imagine, this whole thing has taken a toll on our marriage.

Good idea!

And I think that kicking her out is the best gift you can give yourselves. You've done A LOT for her - more than many would do - no it's time to force her out of the nest and do something for yourselves! ANd, you know, you have some REALLY good material for a book!!!
