Next week we'll have to write up the menu party style, but this week, its back to the family table.
We're serving up fried squirrel tonight. Don't worry, I've dressed and washed this little guy quite thoroughly. Please give a squeeze of lemon over the tender rodent before consuming. May I offer you gravy? I do hope you'll enjoy these tasty sweet potato fritters alongside your tasty li'l critter.
2c mashed sweet potatoes
1t baking powder
4t melted butter
Combine butter potatoes, sugar, milk, and egg yolks. Beat until smooth. Sift flour, measure, and sift with baking poweder and salt. Add to first mixture. Fold in stiffly beaten egg whites. Drop by teaspoonfuls into deep fat (365 degrees). Fry until brown. Drain on crumpled absorbent paper. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. (is anybody else's mouth watering now?)
Spanish String Beans will make an excellent savory side with lots of garlic, onion, and bacon fat.
Shall we finish our plate with delicious apples and onions, thinly sliced, sprinkled with salt, and served with French Dressing?
I don't think we really need dessert tonight, we did just have powder sugar covered sweet-potato fritters afterall. But if you're extra good, I'll let you chose between Baked Heart, Kidney Stew, and Creamed Brains for tomorrow night, ok?
