Joy of Cooking Squirrel - lolz

So for Christmas I had asked Santa to bring me a copy of "The Joy of Cooking" by Irma S. Rombauer.    This book is legendary as one of the first national cookbooks that the United States really had.

If you have ever seen the movie Julie and Julia you should remember a seen where Julia Child goes to visit Irma Rombauer to get some advice while Julia herself is writing her book.

I really wanted this book because it would give me access to recipes that really define American heritage.  For me the greatest heritage can be found in the meals and dishes we prepare for those we love.

Well in this book there was supposedly a legendary section on how to skin a squirrel but they removed it from later editions.   I asked Santa for a 1975 edition because I heard it was in this edition.   

Well for EVERYONE's viewing pleasure here is the image.   PRICELESS.

Time to go get a BB Gun and have a totally new nyc experience lolz
