Terry, your new picture on this blog seems so...formal. I never thought you to be one to embrace the Flag as a point of identity, but we all must stand for something.
I often think of the beverly hillbillies. I wonder HOW DO you cook opossum stew, and opossum gravy with fat back, and what is fat back anyway? I have found opossum in my trash before ,and they are kinda slow. I think that I could take one down if I had to, but I don't know. They are so funny when they fake like they're dead, until they hiss at you ,and you wet your pants. Oh Man , Oh Man , I'm gonna hate the period just before armegeddon.The food choices will suck.When I was a little girl my wicked grandparents had a neighbor that ate squirrel. I remember seeing a bucket of squirrel eyeballs in their basement. Even little children can recognize a crazy adult when they see em'. I should start a blog for foodies. I will entitle it "Entertaining with Belinda on a non existant budget" ,and "oh it's nothing really. I just prepared a little something that I found crawling around in my yard." (seriously God , Please no more rattle snakes, PLEASE! )...................................www.cooks.comROAST OPOSSUM 1 opossum, skinned and cleaned1 tsp. salt1 tsp. pepper1 onion, chopped1 tsp. fat1 opossum liver, chopped1 c. bread crumbs1/4 tsp.

Belinda: We ate that at the last blog gathering that Ter hosted so you are not telling him anything he doesn't already know. I shot the opossum in his yard and Ter cooked it over an open pit. Good times, good times...For the uninitiated, I'm the bloodhound in that photo. I get to looking like that after a few shots of tequila. What can I say? Pathetic I know.Ter: I don't like your new hair color. It's too dark. Did you have the lasik? I noticed you are not wearing specs in your new profile photo.
Um, for the record, I SHOT THE 'POSSUM...but I did not shoot the recipe! Cathy, remember you missed, you were out of practice. Sheesh! I can't even get credit where credit is due!
