That’s right, the boys came through with squirrels. They have had a real brotherly competition going on over these squirrels. They have spent every afternoon running through the neighborhood with their pellet guns pointed at the tree tops. (I should mention we have the greatest neighbors.) The boys delivered the meat so I had to hold up my end of the deal to cook them up some squirrel and dumplings. Let’s just say I don’t think the rest of the family agreed with Farmer Rick’s description of squirrel. “Once you’ve had squirrel you will throw rocks at chicken.” (He said it with his best all knowing tone). It was better than I thought it would be, but I would rather debone chicken. I did enjoy watching JQ try squirrel for the first time. Of course the boys were proud to be putting dinner on the table. I will share my dumpling recipe soon.
