Happy Ground Hog / Birthday Day!

Don't know what to make in honor of Ground Hog Day?
Here is your dinner recipe for tonight found here ~
The misspellings make it even funnier. You gotta read it.

Contry-Style Groundhog

  1. 1 groundhog
  2. 1/2 c. flour
  3. 1/4 tsp. salt
  4. 1/4 tsp. pepper
  5. 1/4 tsp. soda
  6. 1/4 c. cooking oil
  7. 1/2 tsp. sugar

NOTE:Clean and skin as soon as possible. Remove all sent glands. Cut off head, feet and tail. Cure in cool place by suspending from hook approximately 4 days. When ready to cook, lard according to recipe.

Dress groundhog as for rabbit, removing the small sacs in the back and under the forearm. Soak groundhog overnight in salted water to remove wild flavor. Combine flour, salt, pepper and sada; rub into groundhog pieces. Brown grounhog in hot oil in skillet; sprinkle with sugar. Reduce heat; add 1/2 cup water. Cover; simmer for about 30 minutes or until tender. Remove cover; cook for 10 minutes longer.

Happy Groundhog Day!
