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 onionchopped parsley
hot water or stock
1/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup flourbuttered 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.

(Found at jesurgislac's Journal dated November 8**. This is the gesture of a real stand-up guy. I don't know anything about him but I like him already.)

**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.
