Squirrel . . . . It's What's for Dinner!
On Tuesday evening, squirrel was what was for dinner. I hereby pronounce the meal . . . good! Of course, probably just about anything would taste good if you fry it in bacon and bacon grease. That is how I prepared my squirrel. After frying to make a crisp cover, it was popped into the oven to broil for awhile. Next to it was a pan of butternut squash and baking apples, seasoned with a little brown sugar and spices. It's good with pork, and went great with the fried squirrel.
Biscuits and a little mead finished off the meal. Now that I look at it, this meal could have used something green. Ah well . . . too late now. I'll have to steal a squirrel again from the girls and cook it up for our dinner.
Falconry! Or more appropriately for me, Hawking! It is a passion, and a way of life. I happily pursue this sport, with the loving assistance of my husband. Come along with me for our adventures with the birds. Primarily we actively pursue it in the colder months . . . the rest of the time I try to make this blog as interesting as possible. Come let me share my stories, and feel free to contact me. I always enjoy talking about my obsession with this sport.
