Trouble is Our Middle Name

This is Ethel's "Bad Girl" position indicating naughtiness has transpired. There was an incident this afternoon. She had an accomplice. (I don't know why my picture is here as I am so obvs innocent of all charges).

After 5 years of trying with all her might to do it, she finally got a squirrel (artist's rendering, actual death scene much more gory, much less Anna Nicole Smith-y):

And our ape looked like this (disturbingly accurate artist's rendering):

Yup, we're in deep deep trouble.

We are seeking legal counsel. Will trade one Otis for representation.

Way to go girl!

You can come help me control the rodentia in Tennemessee if your Ma Ape is really that bad.

Just a hint.

I find it helpful to eat as much as possible of my catch BEFORE Gussie goes inside to snitch.

Less evidence, Ya know

Ethel! Don't listen to your ape! You are my forever and ever hero (heroine?)! I am Most Proud of your amazing achievement. Perhaps we should all take up donations of green papers to build a statue in your name: Ethel, the great and most mighty squirrel killer!

Ethel, that is disgusting. If it's not batter-dipped and deep-fried, I am not interested.

I'll represent you, as long as I can have some of that squirrel and/or those pills.

I do not advocate this behavior. But since what's done it's done, you might as well take advantage:

Chicken Fried Squirrel

~ quartered and cleaned squirrels, 1 per person
~ buttermilk
~ OldBay seasoning
~ flour
~ salt & pepper
~ shortening

Soak your meat for at least an hour in buttermilk.

Combine the flour & OldBay until you can see the flour turn light pink. Sprinkle in some salt and pepper to taste.

Heat up your shortening to 375 degrees in a iron skillet or deep fryer deep enough to cover the meat.

Roll or shake your meat in the flour mix and fry until the coating is golden brown.

Take it out and place it on a rack to drain. Place it in your oven for about 1/2 hour at 275 degrees.

Serve and Enjoy!
