We need to retrain our tastes, our eyes and our brains...no wonder we are fast becoming an obese nation. It basically makes me want to never eat out.

I use the calorieking website before I go out. It lists the menu item, calories, and grams of fat so you can make a good choice.

Default The Worst Foods of 2009

Last night, I looked up the Calorie King, as the dietician recommended it. I'll have to buy a copy.

Those of us enrolled in Weight Watchers have a resource in the Guide to Eating out. It gives the point values for a variety of mostly fast foods. Thier Food Guide covers most everything else, heck it even has point values for Racoon, possum, squirriel and cat.

He barbecued the puppy,
And then he stewed the cat.
He later ate a piece of cheese.

What? Does this mean no more southern biscuits and gravy; southern fried chicken; fried country ham; eating the skin off the turkey, the crusty fat off the roast pork and the roast beef; chocolate hot fudge sundaes, REAL pizza with double the mozzarella, and huge slabs of butter on crusty Italian bread??? Oh be still my heart!! (Which of course it shortly will be if I keep going the way I am). The immortal words of Mr. Food, "But ooohhh, it's so gooood!" are soon to be a memory.

Long for the taste of the fast food shoe string french fries of the late fifties and sixties? Want to know how to make 'em? Naw.....I can't tell you. Your cholesterol would probably go through the roof just from hearing how to do it. Nonetheless, while a somewhat involved process, they were the absolute finest shoe string french fries this country ever produced.

Oh hang on I answered my own question. 1 oz of cooked squirrel is 1 point. Sorry nothing listed for Ground Hog; I'm guessing it's pretty close to Squirrel in points.

Hang on this is the winner right here. Manifold stew it cooks while you drive. Sounds expensive think of the gas it would take.

Kat, wil your stew recipe work with rodents or with roadkill? We have lots of that in Texas. The main problem I forsee is eliminating the rubber flavor.

Driving (cooking) time varies. Possum takes an extra hour or two over squirrel.
Paul just make certain you roadkill is fresh off the grill (of your car). Old roadkill could make you sick. If you add liquid smoke it cuts down on the rubber taste. Leave the nuts in the squirrels cheeks for almondine.
Richstacy I love Calorie king website it has on the restaurant calorie counts, which helps a lot when you are going out to eat.
