I ate ox balls

After our group left Uganda, we flew to Nairobi, Kenya.
Our group had discussed wanting to stop at Carnivore restaurant before we even left the states.
We happened to have some time before boarding our plane to the Masai Mara.

Carnivore is a meat lovers dream and most famous for their game meat.
The meat is skewered on Masai swords and cooked on coals.

It's then shaved off of the swords and onto your cast iron plate giving you as much meat to eat as your little heart desires.

This was the menu on the day that we ate there.
I tried a little bit of everything...
even the ox balls.

 Over dinner at home a few nights ago, I was sharing my dining experience with the family.
No one was impressed or wondering what ostrich meat balls or crocodile tasted like,
they wanted to know about the ox balls.

This is the actual conversation that was had at the dinner table.
Owen: you ate ox balls or like meatballs made out of ox?
Mom: like ox balls
Dad: yep, like those kind of balls
Owen: why would anyone eat those?
Mom: I don't know, maybe for the experience.
Dad: you should have said you were allergic to nuts.

I missed my family!
