  • Is it primal?

    [in John Ruskin's autobiography] there is an account of the geologist, fossil collector and dinosaur discoverer William Buckland, Canon of Christ Church, serving mice on toast and employing “polite little Carolina lizards” to keep flies from the table
    Mouse on toast: "is it primal?"

    Yes, Just like pizza only eat the topping.

      Substitute white rice for the pasta in this dish and it's pretty primal: Cooks.com - Recipe - Field Mouse Pie

      FIELD MOUSE PIE
      Printed from COOKS.COM

      1 c. macaroni
      1 onion, thinly sliced
      Salt and pepper to taste
      Few field mice (or 1 lb. sausage)
      1 med. can tomatoes
      Dabs of butter

      Living off the land. Did you ever see anything improve the appetite like camping out? Did you ever wonder if the food box was going to last? Here's a recipe to fill in and should appeal to everyone.

      Boil the macaroni until tender (10 minutes). While this is cooking, fry a few field mice long enough to fry out some excess fat. Grease a casserole with some of this fat.

      Put a 1/2 layer of macaroni in casserole; add a layer of onions and the tomatoes, juice and all. Salt and pepper to taste. Add dabs of butter and mice.

      Bake about 30 minutes, or until field mice are done. Serve hot or cold. If you find it difficult to find field mice, you can use sausage, but you won't be living off the land!

      Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

        When I was a kid, I remember the scene in "never cry wolf" where the guy eats mice and thinking it was one of the most entertaining scenes ever. Gonna have to see about getting it on my Netflix queue.

          Oh, they can be swallowed whole? This might simplify things greatly!

              Our stomach acids are geared toward digesting all of an animal. Why does it matter if we eat the whole thing at once or piece by piece? Most of us eat plenty of organ meats and bones already...the fur should pass. Fuzzy poop is probably nice, anyway.

                This is reminding me of high school biology when we had to reassemble a field mouse from what we found in an owl pellet.

                  I still find owl pellets everywhere I go, and often think, "I wonder if that's one whole mouse in there, or just pieces."
