I want to conpawtulate my pal, Zoe, for being a diary pick today! I didn't get to write yesterday because the dogster site was giving me some trouble, and I couldn't get to the diary entry page. I had something exciting to share with you so I had to be more patient than usual I think once my readers see what I have to write about today, they are going to be super excited.
I was in the kitchen going through the cabinets when I found a cookbook which is called The Treasury of White Trash Cooking by Ernest Matthew Mickler and Trisha Mickler. I took one look at that title, and I kept thinking, "I must be the luckiest dog in the world!!! I started glancing through the cookbook and my original assumption was genius. This book is truly a treasure trove of wonderful recipes!
The recipe I am sharing today is in honor of my pals, Whitley and Finley who I thought about as soon as I saw this recipe. Here it is:
Squirrels A La King
Soak 2 dressed squirrels in salt water overnight to freshen them up. An hour or two before dinner, wash them rascals in 2 changes of cool water. Throw them in a kettle with enough water to cover Add 2 halves of an onion, some celery salt, and pepper; Then bring to a boil. Skim the surface foam from the bubbly stew and let simmer until done. Drain and dry the squirrels Then split them down the back and brown the 4 halves in a buttered skillet until golden brown. This is best served with cabbage. By the way, I would skip the cabbage because this dog is not a cabbage fan!
Before I make any further comments, I know that one of your first questions will be, what kind of clothing is best for dressing a squirrel? That answer is simple, but it is not one of those "one size fits most" situations. If it is a formal dinner--like Christmas, weddings, or you are having Bo Obama, first dog, over for dinner, dress them in tuxedos and formal wear. If it is a normal dinner, casual wear should be okay. Jeans and a t-shirt would be perfect. If you are having a luau or a beach party, dress them in swimwear. If you really want to shock your guests, serve them naked. I think you get the idea. Now go get yourself a squirrel, and start cooking!!!!

Coco and I have been wondering what happened to the fat squirrel that was coming by our place...now we know.
I have lots of squirrels around here and I will see if momma will try this recipe. Thank you for sharing!
You are making me hungry! BOL!
I don't think mommy would make that for us.
The world of squirrels is going to be troubled, BOL! Well, cooked would be a better way of thinking...
And Condogulations on being a DDP today!
