Raccoons and jam is nice.

Do you use a mint jelly, or do you prefer something like a raspberry preserve?

Right, together. Now I'm trying to remember where I saw the best way to scrape the hair off a small mammal you want for lunch ... and I've got it - that other Aussie crocodile barefoot wackjob Rob. Raspberry.

Raccooooons! I feed the skunks that live near my house. :-)

I'd give them the chicken but throw away the soup. It'll either freeze, or first they'll spill it and then it will freeze, leaving you with a frozen soup-slick all winter.

Look at the teeny tiny puppy with a big frisbee oh my god so cute want to squish!

No really. So cute.

Truth be known, I'm probably feeding skunks (or neighborhood cats) too. Raccoons just seem a more entertaining concept.

I could heat it up and pour it on carolers outside my door.

Hee. Cookie, old boot, chicken. My favorite things!

Did you notice the fire? I though sure you would have opted for flaming chicken.
wildflowersoul From: wildflowersoul Date: December 20th, 2005 08:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
Dang! I did notice it, but after I voted. Cookies...old boot...fire. And fire will attract even the staunchest vegematarian to delicious chicken if that chicken is engulfed in flames in a pineapple!

we totally need to do Kowloon's sometime...

I like thinking that anything that's been barbecued and then served with pineapple is automatically considered vegetarian-friendly.

yankee harvest moussaka

Take thou a squash and fry it in slices. Pick thou the meat of the bird and chop it and stew it verily with the tomatoes and the onions and the other such things as are customary. Place thou the stewed meat upon the squash in a greasèd casserole dish of what size pleases best and top it with that sauce which the wise do call bechamel and grated hard-cheese of Parma and a sprinkling of crumbs of a goodly bread, perchance one of maize. Bake thou the whole in a moderate oven for three quarters of an hour, or until golden-brown, whichever cometh first.

Re: yankee harvest moussaka

I can recommend it highly; it's our usual way of dealing with post-Thanksgiving turkey (and assorted other leftovers; stuffing has gone into the meat layer, too).

Re: yankee harvest moussaka

It's actually pretty similar to a French recipe I've been thinking about putting together. I'll definitely put it in the "something wonderful" consideration.

Have you ever roasted a goose?

No one loves a good stuffed cabbage like a Polack does. :(

It's a sad day when my petit choux can't win out over a pretty basic chicken salad. They've no idea what they're missing!

I may pick up some supplies on my way home. Besides the things I think I need for such delights, is there anything you need?
