Well, I've still been too busy to post about our trip to Reno, and I've been a bit under the weather lately and not up for any writing. But this morning I was reading MFK Fisher, How To Cook a Wolf, and I ran onto a paragraph that I just loved.
So here it is, a little food for thought.....
"Why is it worse, in the end, to see an animal's head cooked and prepared for our pleasure than a thigh or a tail or a rib? If we are going to live on other inhabitants of this world we must not blind ourselves with illogical prejudices, but savor to the fullest the beasts we have killed."
I have to agree fully!
More on "How To Cook A Wolf":
This is a great book written in 1942. Considering our recent economic and war situation, this 66 year old book has some timely advice.
