Hunters don't often brag about their food. They just shoot it and cook it and eat it, and you're fortunate if you get invited for dinner.

If not for this I would have never had venison or sage hen. I wish I knew more hunters.

Well, I grew up in a hunting family (my grandfather and his brother even owned the sporting goods store in our small rural community) and have plenty of hunter friends. Believe me, when hunters gather in the same room there is bragging galore.

But I've never heard any of them talk about bagging a Canada goose. Ducks? Yes. Pheasant? Yes. Just not honkers. I might have to ask around about this.

Mergansers taste very fishy. Yuck. Because they often hang with mallards, sometimes my dad/grandpa/uncle/cousins would bring home some Mergansers they'd shot while out duck hunting. Wild mallard is very good, IMO. There is another duck they'd sometimes bring home that tasted muddy...I can't remember which one that was, it has been a long time since I've eaten wild duck...sigh.

There have been a few times I've been tempted to grab the pellet gun and quietly take one out. Have you ever been awoken from a dead sleep by the sound of a gigantic honker crash landing on the roof? They make quite a commotion.

Those are the times I think most about eating one.
It is duck and goose season here. I'm hoping one of my friends bags too many geese/duck and thinks of me. I have eaten Canadian goose. The last one was when a friend's husband went hunting in ND and brought me one (I was living in Fargo). I sat on the floor of my apartment and had my dad on the phone coaching me how to clean it...

We are still having the chicken soup. DA's cold is very much better, but we need to finish this.

We do not waste food. Gwen does this sometimes, and it bothers me very much. I shall not say this to her because I love her very much and I do not want to hurt her.

Mamma and Papa and DA are very, very strict of food. To waste food is very bad to my family.

I see the classmates throw away good food sometimes! I think of those portions thrown away and the poor people who would want this food and it makes me sad.

Do any of you feel as of this? Perhaps it is just of me and thinking of the poor people.

With love,
~Cat

Hi, Cat. No, you're not the only one. Unfortunately, too many Americans do waste food. I try not to.

I made chicken cacciatore tonight. DH and I aren't fond of mushrooms, so I used red, green and yellow bell peppers and a jar of Classico pasta sauce jazzed up with garlic, thyme and sage. We had it over linguine with garlic bread.

No duck-duck-goose at our place. I was going to make Hoppin' John but we were hungry when we got home from church. I told Himself he could have yesterday's leftover Chinese and I would make a grilled cheese with tomato for myself. Well he decided that grilled cheese sounded good! I was going to suggest a grilled cheese with bacon, then figured I'd make two small BLTs. Cooked and ate in courses: 1) BLTs to start, then a small salad each, then we split two different grilled cheese - one with tomato and one with bread and butter pickles. It's been damp all day and I'm still not warm - think I'll make a cup of homemade hot chocolate.

Wonderful sounding dinners. I had homemade chili this evening, with a side of jalapeno cheddar corn bread. So yummy. Should be even better tomorrow.
