Cooking, Yet Again, With LSP

Glock & Salmon


What, you cook with LSP? That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard! You say incredulously. But it's true, a lot of cooking goes on at the Compound because the Team's got to eat and they want to improve their marksmanship. That's where quail and venison come in.

Everyone knows that quail and venison make you a better shot, it's settled science, but how do you cook these two aids to ballistic excellence? It's not hard.


Quail & Sig

Make yourself a Glock and Salmon starter, then get some quail that you or one of your pals has shot. Salt and pepper the diminutive birds, fill their cavity with a lemon wedge, then wrap them in bacon. Put the finished result on a baking tray and preheat your oven to 500*. That's right, get that oven hot.


Quail

As you master this tricky task, skin some potatoes and carrots, put them in pots of water and boil them. It's easy, when you know how. Veg on, wait for a while, there's no rush, then put some spicy venison sausage into an iron skillet and apply heat. 


Oven Ready

About 30 minutes from the time you put the veg on, put the quail in the oven for 12 or 13 minutes, no longer. Take the birds out, cover them with foil and let them rest; they're just fine, don't mess with them. As they're finishing off, mash the potatoes, remove the sausage from the skillet and make some gravy in it. I like chopped garlic, white wine, chicken stock and flour. That's one way to do it.


A Knife And Some Garlic

Simmer the gravy and enjoy the aroma, reflect upon the perfidy of Shillary and the GOP establishment, whatever, play some Motorhead; if needs be, reheat the veg. Then put it all together. Two birds a person, extra bacon on the side, sausage, veg and gravy.




Then eat your scoff like a hero and congratulate yourself on a job well done. You'll shoot better the next day, it's been proven, settled science. And that's cooking.

With,

LSP

You need to publish a cookbook!

Looks might tasty!

LSP said...

That could be amusing, LL...

LSP said...

It was a good one, Brighid!

The new cookbook publishing effort won't get any traction in Saudi Arabia or Iran if you continue to insist on adding bacon to the food you cook.

LSP said...

True, that might cut down on Middle Eastern sales. Oh well, there goes that demographic.

I've heard that the bacon available in England these days isn't as good as American bacon. Maybe if they upped their game more Mooselims would go back to their home countries? In the alternative, the Mooselims might convert to C of E?

I just warned LL that you had eaten all the quail, but I guess he knows that already. Beef steaks on the menu.

Or maybe hamburgers...

I don't know about the CofE converting to Islam, though I feel it's likely, but I do know that I like bacon. No doubt about it.

You should publish an LSP cookbook.

Sorry LL, I see you already made this brilliant suggestion. How about something simple like, "Cooking with LSP"? It could be a series.
