This weekend I ate something I’ve never eaten before. The church had a men’s fellowship on Saturday, where all the sportsmen (fishermen and hunters) brought in an entree of their choice made from something they killed. For those of us that don’t hunt or fish, we could bring in a side or dessert. Me, I brought in some sort of Oreo pudding pie thing, which was super rich, though tasty.
Food was aplenty and I had a great time. Of course, it’s always a great time when food is involved. Fish was fried and set out. Green peppers and jalapenos were stuffed and available. Casseroles and and baked potatoes. Pheasant, which I’ve had before, was roasted to perfection. Deer, another food I’ve eaten, was cooked as a meatloaf and as something like a porkchop. In fact, one person had killed a deer Saturday morning and prepared it, so it was super tender and definitely the best thing I ate. Then there was the duck.
I’ve never eaten duck before. It was wrapped in bacon, so it had to be good, even if it had a dark red color to it. The meat was very dark and slightly gritty, but it did taste pretty good. It reminded me of liver, but nowhere near as bad.
Overall, I enjoyed practically everything I ate. It was fun fellowshipping and trying a new food. Plus, I always like the chance to eat deer. The only bad part is that my body must not be used to the different foods or something, cause my stomach’s been bubbly ever since Saturday night.
In keeping with the art theme mentioned on Friday’s post, I’ve came across another website for the visual arts: The Museum of Bad Art (MOBA). Whether you’re looking for a horrendous portrait of skewed proportions or an odd and surreal landscape, MOBA has it all. So, if you’ve got some time, check out the site. Here’s just a snippet of what you’ll find.Mystique from the X-Men.
