Open Post: Hosted By The Placenta Panini
I'm feeling nice today, so I put the full picture of this placenta panini after the jump. The picture itself is not that gross, but it becomes gross when you know it's made from placenta. Actually, if you pretend it's just Manwich, it's not so bad. Okay, that might have made it worse. And now I can never enjoy a delicious Manwich panini.
It's not unheard for people to feast on placenta after giving birth. I saw a documentary on HBO or something about it. They served it at some fancy cocktail party with wine and shit. So just beware that the next time you're at a party, those delicious mini-quesadillas might not be made with beef.
Anyway, Mom Logic posted a story yesterday about how twin sisters, Chrissy and Kathy, made some delicious dishes using Chrissy's baby's placenta. They wanted to share their gourmet dishes with everyone, so they posted it all on Facebook! Chrissy and Kathy both did research to make sure it was safe to eat the placenta. They decided to eat it, because it's 6lbs of pure meat that did so much for baby, so they felt bad wasting it. They said it didn't taste bad at all and had the consistency of filet mignon. I'll take their word for it.
Somewhere in the world, OctoMommy is slapping herself with a baby, because she could've opened a carniceria with her placenta!
