By the way, what is a Frickasee?  Has anyone ever had a Frickasee?  It sounds...perky.  And where do they eat this stuff?



Fricassee – A fricassee is almost always a stew in which the meat, usually poultry, is cut up, lightly cooked in butter, and then simmered in liquid until done.

The squirrel is a mightily fearful creature (ask the Pear tree in my back yard what he thinks of 'em), but I don't know if they are more so than Bears.

You know...I normally would want to do something like that.  But I hate sitting and reading from a computer. 

That's why I was never good at entering threads which already had discussion going...

Anyway...cleveland's squirrel idea might not be bad.  A maniac squirrel which raids stores...you could create and army of them!!!!! 

Or not...either way...

MMMM.... Squirrel frickasee.  Actually, that sounds disgusting.  Maybe that sentiment is best reserved for the Redneckian/Hillbilia thread in the Other Languages Board.

Nope.  Never needed to or wanted to.  I've stuck to the more traditional store-bought stuff in this country (although we roast whole lambs on Pascha here, and when I go back to Greece it's either whole lamb or pig).

Although we do have a bunch of Deer venison in the freezer in the basement waiting to be cooked and eaten.

At your service.  Smiley  In parts of the US its traditional to put squirrel in Brunswick Stew rather then a fricassee.

I had squirrel once.  It tasted...gamey.  Which means they caught it in the wild.  If they trapped them at U of H or Rice, they would have tasted like Cheetoes and Funyons.

Anything to make it more palatable for us city folk, no doubt.  I wouldn't try it anyway - if I wanted to eat squirrel, then I'd want it out of the wild instead of feeding off some College student's leftovers.

Yuck. Can't stand that stuff. Not a good thing when you're in the middle of deer country, and the First day(s) of Buck/Doe are almost considered holidays. I'd rather try squirrel. Or bear.  Grin

The brains (a delicacy in some parts of this country) taste buttery.

I think elsewhere in this thread I discussed my encounters with squirrel brains...just be careful that rabies isn't going around your local squirrel population!

I thought in PA the first days of Deer season were Religious holidays! Cheesy

If you really want to eat bear, go ahead.  It's just one more way of eliminating domestic terror threats! Cheesy

I've never had squirrel before. I love wild turkey soup. Stephatho is a delicacy in my house. Basicly rabbit stew.
I also stew venison. Witch tastes great. The horns look good on the wall too. Grin

Don't know about Chartwells, but ARAMARK's standard recipe for meatloaf is ground turkey based.

With a side of incontinence. Grin

Not big on thai.  More of an Indian fan if I have a choice of South Asain food.

Though I do like Thai coffee.  I'll never drink it unless I have to cram for the next 36 hours.  Keeps ya up at night!

That, folks, was the last time I ate Thai food.

Ummm, too spicy for you?  

As someone told me years and years ago about a wonderful dish of chicken Panang at a Thai restaurant:
"Don't eat the French-cut green beans."  That was because what *looked* like frenched green beans were in reality little Green Peppers of Doom.

One would hope that posting on OC.net is not as much of a shock to the system.  Grin

How does Thai coffee compare with that elixir of heaven known as Greek coffee?

Strong with sweetened condensed milk and I have it iced.  It's powerful stuff.  The places I've had it they let it drip through the grounds into your cup/glass which has the milk already in it.

To quote a Thai Guy (and yes he was well dressed too) "Four times as creamy, three times as sweet, and twice as strong, if it's made right."

It's made with sweetened condensed milk, and double black, so after the 36 hour sugar/ cafiene rush, you feel like a slug stuck in molases in winter at the north pole.

where would one buy Thai coffee? 

Is it just served in restaurants?  Or is it available "over the counter"??
