As the years ticked by and George's cook book grew thicker we would asked friends to read it and that they honestly give us their opinion. Everyone was unanimous in that his stories were neat and that he should write more of them. He did not think they were anything special but agreed and we had fun going through our memories and putting them down in stories. Now for me they are priceless........So today I will post a story and recipe word for word via George as only he could write. Enjoy.
A few years ago my daughter Miranda had a hankering to try rattler, so good old Dad was on the hunt. I finally drove by a 4 footer on the way to the mountain one evening and stopped with a shovel to dispatch the serpent. Son Kit was with me, after I cut the hard off with the shovel I said
"Watch this." That decapitated snake head bit the shovel blade 13 times when I would nudge it with the edge! I was always taught to bury a snake head after you killed it to keep your dog (or someone else) from being bitten by it..Now I know why...
Anyway I whipped up a batch of Rattlesnake soup and we fed it to the Lavina Cheerleaders
( yes they knew what they were eating!). Everyone liked it including a foreign exchange student from Germany and one girl who was snake-phobic!
1 Large Rattlesnake
1 Can Chicken Broth. 16oz
2 Packages Top Roman Noodles
1 Can Mixed Vegetables. 16oz
Cook the cleaned and skinned snake in a couple inches of water in the
Crockpot until you can peel the meat off the bones easily, but not until
It falls apart.
Cook the Top Ramen noodles.
Add the noodles, meat, and mixed vegetables together. Heat thru and serve......
