Parisian Poulet




























Grilling out for the holidays? Mmmmm! Chicken. Don't know about you, but I think I would pass on fowl if this is what I had to choose from at the market. There were feathers, legs, faces and feet, not to mention the head, like it was sleeping with its comb still on. Small birds, ducks and geese and rabbit too. Everything was not wrapped in plastic like our pre-packaged meats from the store. Some birds wore stamps or decals of some kind; my guess is it was to tell you where they came from. I am sure they were more flavorful than what we get at Wal Mart, but I just can't do the whole animal thing. I've never eaten one of my chickens (nor bunnies, turkeys or animals, oh my). They have names and as it is, I can barely choke down one of the eggs.

  1. Yes, that's how they do it, oftentimes passing a butcher shop there would be fresh kills, hanging upside down outside.
    I would rather not see a resemblence to the victim, {sigh}.

  2. fresh meat is not very appetizing....I was a vegetarian for many years...my husband and son rebelled....but I could easily lose it from my diet again. Critters are just too nice for eating.....

  3. Interesting. Doesn't bother me, though. Not sure why, just doesn't.

  4. I've never understood how people can eat their pets.
