Rodent...It's What's for Dinner

I'm sure that if you are a regular reader of this aethernet journal, then you know about my love of a hearty rat stew or mouseheads lightly drizzled with anchovy oil. While you lily-stomached types recoil in disgust, it is quite a savory dish in feline circles. Seems that in some human circles, rodents make a lovely meal as well, as seen in the recipes mentioned HERE.

Oh, never fear...Willard and Chuckles are safe. I think those two would be a bit...tough to digest. Chester, on the other hand, is one word too many towards making his way into a simmering pot!

I must say that, when watching "Ratatouille" the other night, I thought of how useful you would be, Dr. Alter. Was it wrong of me to root against the rats?

I was unable to find the muskrat recipes, unfortunately.

I am almost always rooting against the rats, so no...not wrong at all Miss Jameson.

And Frau Lowey, I do believe that gentleman has also consumed cane rat in Uganda as well.

All of this talk is making me quite hungry. One thing about having a place on the docks is the abundance of food.
