A Thanksgiving Alternative To Turkey

A holiday treat idea from the Washington Post:

Fried Squirrel

1. Dress squirrel (preferred designers? male squirrels: SeanJohn; female squirrels: bebe)

2. Wash thoroughly.

3. Cut in pieces for servings (Joseph K helpful hint: cut into cubes if you are thinking about serving kebobs)

4. Cover with salt water.

5. Let stand overnight. (or sit, whatever)

6. Drain.

7. If squirrel is not tender, consider sensitivity training. Otherwise, parboil for 10 minutes.

8. Drain.

9. Roll in flour.

10. Fry in vegetable oil until tender. (Damn, how hard is it to get a squirrel to open up and become tender? Isn't there a Sally Fields film or something that might help?)

11. If the squirrel is young, parboiling is unnecessary. The younger squirrels have not yet become hardened and cynical.

12. Make a brown sauce. (Joseph K: yuck! Brown sauce tastes like shoe.)

13. Serve squirrel garnished with lemon slices and parsley.
