Probably a 2 out of 5, maybe a 3. Probably a cool sound at the time, not aged all that well!

One line summary: Not a fan but I can see how this would have been cool when it came out…
Our lovely Monkey Queen of Don’t Make Me Call My Flying Monkeys, was our May Daring Cooks’ hostess and she challenged us to dive into the world of en Croute! We were encouraged to make Beef Wellington, Stuffed Mushroom en Croute and to bring our kids into the challenge by encouraging them to create their own en Croute recipes!
“Mandatory Items: Wrap whatever suits your taste in some type of pastry and bake it.” – that sounded perfect to me… but how to make it interesting? Pate En Croute is a common recipe, as is Beef Wellington but as far as I could see no one had ever made Squirrel En Croute – four ingredients or more!
A quick shopping trip for a squirrel from Ridley’s Fish & Game at the Stockbridge Market and I was sorted. My ingredients were:
- 1 squirrel
- 1 pack of pate
- 1 pack of puff pastry
- 1 egg
I braised and then simmered the squirrel before taking the meat off the bone. I rolled the pastry, layered on the pate and the squirrel meat and then brushed egg around the pastry. It took ages to cook but that’s because my wife informed me that I shouldn’t have used a whole pack of pastry, who knew! The end result was very tasty – the squirrel meat was moister than I expected and it all tasted pretty awesome!

Wow! I’d never heard of The Saints and yet Know Your Product is my new favourite tune. 1978? Sounds like the late 90’s to me! 🙂 So glad that I’ve found this album.
I’ve listened to “My Sharona” plenty of times before but I’ve somehow missed out on The Knack’s album, “Get The Knack”. Wikipedia tells me it was massive and rightly so – it’s actually pretty awesome! There are some really great moments and it’s certainly worth a listen. What do you think? I think it’s a decent inclusion on Kurt’s list.
