Today was a big day in the Squeaky Peanut household: Eviscerated Squab Day!
Luckily I wasn’t in the operating room while its head and feet were removed, but I got a photo of it before it was decapitated. It’s really pretty cute. Poor thing….
I will spare you the photograph of it with its entrails spilling out so as not to lose any subscribers. (I do have photos I can email to any sickos interested.)
Hubby followed a Julia Child recipe to roast it, and made some sautéed shiitake mushrooms, grilled bread, and split pea soup to accompany it. The bird was good but a bit gamey–it is considered a red meat, interestingly enough. The mushrooms and soup were scrumptious, as was the sparkling white from the Loire region. Since this was lunch, we split the tiny bird.
Dessert was a lemon charlotte cake from Whole Foods=highly recommended!
