Arianna Huffington’s Squirrel Cacciatore
Poor Arianna, briefing against her AOL overlords whilst they recuperate in hospital, hiring and firing and sleeping with NBC’s (No Bloody Covers), what is a girl to do?
Simple, dust off Grandma Huffington’s recipe for squirrel cacciatore.
Here’s what you’ll need:
~ 2 - 3 squirrels cut up in pieces
~ 1/4 cup flour
~ garlic salt
~ black pepper
~ 2 tbsp oil
~ 1/2 tsp oregano
~ 1/4 tsp ground cloves
~ 1 4oz can sliced mushrooms, drained
~ 1 medium green pepper, chopped
~ 2 onions, sliced
~ 1 rib of celery, chopped
~ 1 15oz can tomato sauce
~ 1/2 cup dry white wine
~ 1 small can(2oz) ripe sliced olives
Shake the squirrel pieces in a bag with flour, garlic salt and pepper. At this stage you could add some hairspray, Republicanism and some kitten heels.
In a Dutch oven saute the pieces in the oil until golden brown.
Add the remaining ingredients, except for the olives. Cover and simmer over low heat about 1 hour, or squirrel is tender.
Stir in black olives and simmer 10 minutes more.
Serve with rice or noodles if desired.
Make sure not to use roadkill or squirrels killed with breaking news and mediocre telecoms providers this is not sanitary.
