Dinner with a family?

OMG I couldn't be happier that it is almost Friday. No seriously we wrapped up day 7 of 8 today and I honestly can't tell you who is crazier anymore. Is it me or is it the kids? They couldn't even be called children anymore they are little beast like creatures running around screaming and laughing hysterically. Wait...that might have been me. On to other things...

I got invited to dinner with a student's family tonight. I may have mentioned before that sometimes they like to try and feed me weird shit and giggle when I say no or try it and look like I swallowed something deadly. I was lucky today....well kind of. But first let me share with you something I posted on FB after the last time I went to dinner with a family....

Everytime I go to dinner with a students parents the conversation starts like this:
Them: Do you eat snake?
Me: No
Them: how about dog?
Me: No, thank you.
Them: Hahahaha foreigners are so picky
Me: here is what I won't eat...Snake, dog, cat, any animals neck or feet, any organs without prior discussion of what animal and organ, nothing with dairy.

Is that really so difficult?? Every single time...Don't even get me started on table manners. No seriously its bad.

They love it. Think its hilarious. Me? Not so much. I am very adventurous when it comes to food I try not to say no unless it is something that really grosses me out. As mentioned above I said no to Snake...why? Because I had it with the last kids parents and its nothing fancy and didn't taste like much. 

Anyway! Today I only managed to accidentally eat what I think might have been part of a pigs vein or intestine. I'm not 100 on that one yet and prefer not to know. It wasn't awful just chewy. Other than that I had lots of seafood and then for some reason they wanted me to try this wine-like substance poured into half a crab shell...weird right? the wine was bitter and gross so I won't be doing that again. 

Hot pot! 

right before I took a sip 

wine in a crab shell that came out of that pot from above ^^^

moving it around to get the meat from the sides (I was told to do this) 

Why are there tomatoes on her cake??? 

Happy Happy....

...I have no clue why my cheeks are so pink! 

rooftop garden! 

My students mom picking chives for me! 

Then we picked vegetables from their rooftop garden for me to take home and I was happy. OOh and there was cake, yummy cake with some kind of purple stuff on the inside. 

Such an adventure eating at someone's house in China :)
