Stop The Pyrex/Glassware Shenanigans (Extreme temperature change issues)

Pyrex and other glassware
I have several pieces dating back to '69 when I got married.
I have never had a problem with my corning ware or pyrex pieces.
I guess I might have been lucky but they are my favorites.
I still have a few of my original engagemment and wedding gifts

2015 First Flush Darjeeling

I want to purchase this years First Flush Darjeeling-
any suggestions
I was happy with my purchase from http://silvertipstea.com/fusionecomme... this past year.
I also purchase sample sizes of Darjeeling from Upton-they are not usually the most flavorful.

Lamb Shanks in the Slow Cooker?

I have 2 lamb shanks in the slow cooker now-
I used fresh grape tomatoes, a small can of whole tomatoes, vegetable broth and cabernet

I hate organ meat

my mom(let her rest in peace) made sweetbreads and beef liver fried with onions every month or so. I didn't much like them.
but chopped calves or chicken liver with onions,schmaltz, and chopped hard boiled eggs were delicious.

I also enjoy making petcha- jellied calves feet-It is an acquired taste but delicious with lots of garlic and fresh lemon juice or vinegar.

Then there is chicken soup with chicken feet and the chicken innards-heart,neck,liver, etc.

I also think there is a difference in taste of pork offal

I also enjoy pickling veal tongue and having a sandwich on rye with mustard and coleslaw.
