I think he lives with two girls that think they're cute and it would offend them.  

I'm not sure if "offend" is the right word...  Probably more like "disgust"...  
Too much Thumper and Bambi influence with no "farm girl" influence.  Besides, both are A's and no red meat is fine for them.

My Granmere used to fry up rabbit just like fried chicken. Crispy and spicy, it was yummy. I was very young and assumed it was her regular fried chicken. Naturally I found out as I got older but it didn't change anything.

Just say, "It's chicken".

I just ordered a gift from this company:
The Game Sausage Sampler ( for an O and his A wife)
Includes:
Rabbit, Venison, Wild Boar, Duck a l'Armagnac, and Lamb Merguez packages.
All shipping is Fed Ex Overnight on dry ice.

Well, the recipient received the package today.
The enclosed packing slip contained all the right product information, but the contents were wrong:

A mixed CHICKEN sausage sampler.
This is supposedly a quality, reputable company.
Therefore I can only assume they will make this right by sending what I ordered to this recipient. Of course, there are probably laws about sending meat back, however, so they'll probably just have to absorb that.

I'm telling y'all so that you're careful and leave plenty of lead time for them to err again, if you're planning to order from them, so that you'll have what you need by the date you like. The online catalog is really nice. What a shame.

And this particular recipient might have turned out to be a good customer, too -- really, really likes game.



Update: It turns out their website shows they have a 100% Customer Satisfaction guarantee. I opted by email for a re-ship of what I ordered, but I'm also entitled to my money back. Will let y'all know if the products are good. I believe this company supplies restaurants, too.

Shipping is pricy, as you can imagine. And nothing shipped on ice can be returned.

They know better - I'm half B...

The only option I have that is reasonable - size wise is pheasant.  My WW would wonder where in So. CA did I find a pheasant.  I would have a hard time telling her with a straight face that it flew into the backyard...

It's a mutant pheasant - the kind with fur.

I was going to suggest you tell her you got it from a mate at work, till I remembered another animal+work story... My cousin was told, that Daddy took his puppy to work...Naturally he was upset & the thing he struggled most with, was that Daddy worked in the sausage factory...

Tonight I watched an episode of Gordon Ramsay's F Word in which two English restaurants faced off in the "British Cuisine" category. I have already watched the Italian, the Spanish, the French, the Indian, the Chinese, the Thai, and the "Americas" cuisine contests, and I have to say -- much to my own surprise -- that the British category has, for me, been the most exciting. Yes, I really did say that.

For the Main Course competition, The Swan restaurant of Kent submitted venison, and The Pheasant of Cambridgeshire submitted a mustardy rabbit dish. Can you beat that? Then (this is for Nomads): There had been an appetizer competition in which each restaurant was required to use Stilton cheese. The Pheasant restaurant (a very charming thatched, fireplaced house with livestock roaming the grounds) produced a sliced beet salad with walnuts, and the Stilton lightly breaded and fried, the whole plate smothered in unusual organic herbs. It was gorgeous. This dish beat the Stilton dumplings made by The Swan.

I'm happy to say The Pheasant won the overall competition --- only by ONE point, where 100 pts. had been originally up for grabs. It's the sort of place that should be recognized, using ONLY locally produced ingredients, including the meat, and serving it all up in a rustic style and setting. The competitor's style was too - what's the word? - poncy.

I'm a big aficionada of so-called ethnic foods, but there's something about the robustness of game - large or small - and the downhomeness of the local produce, proferred in simplicity, that secures my vote, it seems.

This was, for me, a culinarily exciting - nay, thrilling - program.
So much for British Food Jokes.
