SNACKS
What a great subject at this early stage in our journey to find excitement and adventure on a Low Carb maintenance diet!

The word Boring comes up a lot when speaking to folks struggling to live with the perceived limitations of Atkins and the many other variations of Low Carb.

For some Rats are the answer, for others.. Maybe not!

Well, you can say you heard it here first folks, I HAVE THE ANSWER.. drum roll.. it doesn't have to be a burden or a mystery, you can just change your definition of snack.. GASP!

YES, it's that easy.. thank you.. please no flowers... keep your seats.. no need to stand and applause...blush.. good night.. :)

They've been eating rats in India for centuries.

This article is absolute BS.

The Khmer, Thai Isaan, Chinese, Vietnamese, and other Asian ethnics have always eaten rice field rats. They're not street rats.

Not everyone eats them of course (some think they're repulsive) but it's not like this just popped up because of avian flu.

"Well, we could possibly get infected from eating the birds, so let's eat these dirty, nasty rodents instead!!" YUM!

BTW, I don't ever watch Fear Factor because IT repulses me, but I was flipping channels last week and saw a girl lying in a coffin-shaped container, having a barrel-full of RATS poured on her!! If that is not repulsive enough, her "boyfriend" became angry with her after she couldn't sit in the coffin anymore - he said "it didn't look THAT bad" - what a jerk. That show is like a train wreck - you just can't look away some times. But, I will not seek it out in the future because it made me very naseuous (thank God I wasn't still pregnant when I caught this scene!)

Bird flu-scared Cambodians turn to eating rats **New FAST FOOD ATKINS LowCarb**

Judging from their speed when I tried to kill them in the Dominican Republic, rats would be true fast food.

villagers catch the rodents in nearby rice fields and sell them for up to 1,400 riel (35 US cents) each to market vendors, who resell the meat for about 1,800 riel per kilogram.

This just doesn't compute, unless their rats are the size of poodles...

This is not a good time for me to be talking about rats. We had one die of "Unnatural Causes" under the three steps leading from the kitchen down to the laundry. It has been marinating in it's own juices for a couple of weeks now and has gotten quite ripe...

No big deal -- what do you think those McMeatPatties you've been eating all those years are really made of?

I saw a very, very odd Quizno's commercial the other day, and all I could surmise was that they are now selling rat sandwiches.

The Ingredients for Rat and Kobold Kabobs.......


1 kobold (German elf...optional in recipe)
1 giant rat
1 large onion or a dozen miniatures
2 large tomatoes or a dozen cherries
2 large green peppers
2 large potatoes or a dozen small purple-skinned potatoes
1 package toothpicks
4 skewers (minimum)

barbecue sauce
salt and pepper
curry sauce
soy sauce
cajun sauce
garlic and onion salt
any desirable combo of the above.
allspice

Sauce: Prepare meat to taste. Suggestions include:

barbecue sauce
salt and pepper
curry sauce
soy sauce
cajun sauce
garlic and onion salt
any desirable combo of the above.
allspice




Rolled Rat and Kobold Kabobs

Here's a tasty little dish, the first in a series for those of you who wonder what to do with pesky creatures after you've successfully skinned them.

1. Kill, skin and gut kobold and rat. Fillet both into 4 inch by 6 inch rectangles minimum; the larger the better. Trim fillets until they are 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.

2. Chop vegetables fine to personal preference. Thin strips also work. Prepare meat to taste.

3. Marinade fillets a few hours in a good wine of your choice to soften the meat and make it chewable. Lay fillets flat on a plate.

4. Mix vegetables in a large bowl.

5. Place an appropriate amount of mixed vegetables lengthwise in each fillet. Roll fillet over vegetables until a sort of enchilada or meat roll is formed. Pinch and secure both ends of each meat roll with toothpicks.

6. Skewer the meat roll. When done properly, the bulge of vegetables should be below the skewer when the skewered meat roll is held parallel to the flat ground. This, along with the toothpicks securing each end, prevents the juices from leaking out during cooking. Barbecue skewers parallel to flat ground until done.

Serve and enjoy



Stay Safe !
