For this month's report on "crazy," "weird" and "gross-looking/sounding" food items found at your local supermarket, the tables have been turned. CityBeat's Contributing Dining Editor Anne Mitchell offered me a potential topic: mock turtle soup. "Obviously it's not made from turtles," she wrote in an e-mail, "but I've never had the nerve to try it." Mock turtle soup? Ha, I've been eating since I was a small child, saddling up to the Hitching Post restaurant on the West Side.
