Squirrel - Treetop Tidbit Stew

Recipe Courtesy of Buck Peterson Preparation: 1. Cut up squirrel carcass into 4 pieces. 2. Brown pieces in oleo 3. Cover with water, season very lightly. 4. Simmer until almost done. 5. Add diced, sliced, shredded favorite vegetables. 6. Mix 1/2 cup water and 6 tablespoons flower and thicken brew. 7. Now cook until done.

I serve this with a fine dessert of twinkies or ho-ho’s. Sometimes a nice warm poptart will top it off nicely! Also, don’t forget the heel of a loaf of Wonder bread - dip it in the brew and you’ll be in heaven!

White Trash Cooking - Preparations for Road Kill Shoppin’

Now Ya’ll - I know what you are thinking….that the idea of eatin’ road kill is just a myth. Well, I’m here to prove you wrong. I have a bible here at my double-wide, and it is called "The Original Road Kill Cookbook." My buddy "Buck" Peterson compiled this book. ‘afore I give you any recipes, you must prepare for your adventures in the discovery of fresh road kill quisine. Here are a few pointers from our friend Buck:

Where to Shop (automobile required, rusty truck preferred):

Near Water
Near a Game Refuge
Around Deer Crossings
Near Heavy Cover (you know - trees, cornfields!)

What you Should Put in the, um, Shopping Cart (Yeah, the Family Truckster):

C.B. (what good person doesn’t have a C.B.?)
Canvas or Tarp

*Note - there are other less obvious necessities according to Buck - like enough gas to get you quickly home. Once loaded, don’t speed and give the "badges" a chance to score your booty, though!
