New recipe just in time for Thanksgiving: Potted Crow
For those who have been looking, either for themselves or to feed to someone else...Potted Crow
- 6 crows
- 3 bacon slices
- stuffing of your choice
- 1 diced carrot
- 1 diced onion
- chopped parsley
- hot water or stock
- 1/4 cup shortening
- 1/4 cup flour
- buttered toast
Clean and dress crows; stuff and place them upright in stew-pan on the slices of bacon. Add the carrot, onion and a little parsley, and cover with boiling water or stock. Cover the pot and let simmer for 2-3 hours, or until tender, adding boiling water or stock when necessary.Make a sauce of the shortening and flour and 2 cups of the stock remaining in the pan. Serve each crow on a thin slice of moistened toast, and pour gravy over all.
**For future reference, the Democrats took the election, winning control of both houses of Congress, breaking a twelve year lock on all three branches. Lotta pundits eating crow now. With Bush a lame duck, the future looks good for Democrats. Of course they can snatch a defeat from the jaws of victory. It won't be the first time.
Sure enough, they did, four years later, midterm elections of 2010. Even having elected Barack Obama to the White House Democrats fell to a blistering loss of power in both houses.
