I've had a rather productive day. I picked almost a gallon of blackberries at my parents. They are in the fridge right now & I plan on making my freezer jam tonight. My back got rather crispy while I was out there though. Oh, I also found out that Japanese beetles like to fly down shirts & it's fun to tie a string around a June bugs leg & watch it fly around in circles!! I also found a large muskidine(sp?) or scuppernong(sp?), I don't know which one it is, vine that's loaded with fruit. I'll be going back as soon as that's ripe to pick some. I can't wait!! I had a little scare while I was there too. I was in this huge pile of brush picking berries & a huge black snake went between my feet! I'm just glad it wasn't a cotton mouth or copperhead, we find those a lot around my parents house. Ahh...the joys of living in the woods!!

Oops! I didn't mean to skip your order Maidrite, sorry, I was rambling! OK, for Barbara lobster chunks in cream sauce over linguini & for you a bacon wrapped filet, medium rare, loaded baked potato, & 2 bottled waters. Hope y'all enjoy that!

Any more bacon wrapped filet left, Crewsk? It sure sounds good - and I'm not even hungry!

Anyone seen any good movies at the theaters lately?

Baked potato? Sure, if you INSIST!
We took the kids to Madagascar last weekend, but I'd like to go see a grown up movie. Unfortunately I bet I see those about once a year! It's just soooo expensive these days.

Too bad it's not a garden though. It's just a huge feild that my uncle normally keeps his cows in. Black snakes don't bother me, they keep the mice, rats, & bad snakes away.

You bet, Bang. Here's the recipe I'm using to fry some up for you. I've also cooked up some okra in tomato sauce and made some old fashioned beaten buttermilk biscuits with fresh butter and strawberry freezer jam.

FRIED GATOR, Fried Alligator

Yield: 6 servings

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups cold water

2/3 cup cornmeal
2 Florida green onions, finely chopped
2 tablespoons coarse ground black pepper

2 pounds Florida alligator ( gator ) meat, cut in strips
vegetable oil for frying

Combine first 4 ingredients; slowly add water, mixing well. Set aside.
Combine cornmeal, onions and pepper in a small bowl or pie plate. Mix well and set aside. Dip alligator meat in flour mixture, let excess drain off then coat with cornmeal mixture and deep-fry in hot oil 375 degrees F for 3 to 4 minutes. Drain on absorbent paper.

Per serving: calories 606, calories from fat 351, total fat 39g, saturated fat 6g, cholesterol 73mg, total carbohydrate 30g, protein 35g.
