My friend, I absolutely adore you, but you come near my favorite boys and you'll find out just how "spunky" I can be.
That said, I am going to start saving combes from all the boys I butcher. I never seriously considered eating them, but for making soup...that makes sense. Soup in June though...you may want to reconsider that once you're here. June is the absolute worst month in Arizona. It's super hot, way too humid, and with no rain for relief. June is when we all give thanks for air conditioning and worship the HVAC repairmen.
