Yes, you read correctly, 5-6 SQUIRRELS!!!
I really have no words. But this is my life with a teenage boy. His interests could be worse.
Anything is good with cheese and fried onion rings on it, right!!?????
For those who want to know more of the story:
My son loves his BB gun and hunting. He woke up early Saturday morning and hunted 6 squirrels. He skinned them and gutted them all by himself. He spread all the furs out on a piece of wood and nailed them taut and then covered them with salt. He is drying the furs so he can make some winter gloves out of them. He learned all about drying furs on Youtube.
Then that afternoon, our neighbor, Frank and David prepared and cooked squirrel casserole.
And then the best part. . . we all (yes all, even me) got to eat squirrel casserole for dinner. I think I should get Mother-Of-The-Year award for that.
It actually wasn't bad. Several at the dinner table went back for seconds saying it reminded them of pork. But I just could not get over the fact that I was eating squirrel.
So, if your are feeling brave, and want to save on groceries. . . grab your BB gun and hunt down your dinner this week :)
On a side note:
Rob and I often pray that our kids will have other adults in their lives who will invest in them and teach them things, especially things we could never pass on. We are thankful for Mr. Frank who taught David to skin and gut small animals and passed on his love of cooking to our son. Skinning and gutting animals nor cooking are something Rob and I know well.
On another side note:
