      When you are one of six children, you don't get to discuss what's for dinner. You eat what is served or you go hungry. So I was eating Tripe Soup before I could spell Tripe. Before learning it was the lining of a stomach, I had eaten Irish, Italian, German, Polish, Czechoslovakian, and Mexican versions of Tripe Soup and/or Stew.<br/><br/>I made a half recipe intending to eat it myself over the next week. My childbride and our son both loved it. Fortunately our son graduates from college this year. ;)
