Moose Fat

"Mama," my ten-year-old son said. "Did you know moose fat makes things taste better?"

I nearly choked on my roast beef sandwich when I heard that news.  "No, Bubba.  I had no idea."

"It's true.  There's a Canadian Survival show that says if you add moose fat to anything, it'll taste better."

"Does it work on Brussels sprouts?" I asked.

Bubba shrugged.  "Probably."  He paused for a second and then added, "You should add it to your recipes.  I bet it would make the food you cook taste much better."

Uh.  Okay.

  1. Ouch! You'll have to remind him of that fact when you bake a cake or cookies and see if he wants moose fat in them. :)

    1. I can relate. My husband is still joking about the time I left the wrapper on the ham and baked it. That was thirteen years ago!

    1. We'll keep him in the south, and that should prevent him from finding some moose.

  6. No judgement here. I consider it a successful dinner when there aren't any fires and there isn't any food poisoning.

  13. I'm making a note of this in my recipe file. Does Bubba know where I can find a moose?

    1. Alaska would be a good place. But if you don't want to shoot your own, I'd go to Jungle Jims in Cincinnati. That place has every bizarre food imaginable!

  15. Now Bubba needs to go on an adventure to find a moose!

  16. For some it's bacon, for others it's olive oil. Maybe Bubba's favorite condiment will be moose fat.

  17. I don't think I'll be adding moose fat to my Brussels sprouts anytime soon. I like mine with butter or bacon. : )

  18. Don't you just loving the honesty. Alas I'm such a disaster in the kitchen that I doubt even moose fat could improve matters.
