Recipes for the Greater Depression

Since the Simple-Bowels Catfood Commission's recommendations are being treated as if they had been handled down by God Himself, and are likely to be implemented thereby crashing the economy, I am continuing my cookbook for the Greater Depression coming where protein will be hard to come by because even cat food will be too expensive for most people to afford.

Today: Cajun Jambalaya.

  • 2 large rats, cleaned & cut into serving pieces
  • salt & red pepper to taste (To season rat)
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 bell pepper, chopped
  • 4 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 2 cups uncooked rice
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 tsp salt

Season rat pieces well with salt and red pepper.

Brown the rat in the oil. Remove from the skillet.

Saute the onions, celery, garlic, bell pepper, & parsley in the oil until it is wilted.

Replace the rat in the skillet, cover and simmer about 20 minutes or until the rat is tender.

Stir in the rice, water, and 2 tsp salt.

Simmer for about 30 minutes or until the rice is tender.

Serve & Enjoy!'

Rat: It's all we're going to be able to afford once Simple-Bowels get their way. Rat: It's the other white meat :-).

  1. If you were in Louisiana, it would sound better if you phrased it this way: "Nutria -- it's the other rat meat."

  2. Hey I've eaten at KFC, it's not so bad.

  3. Dude. I thought my sense of humor was sick, lol.
