Bon Appétit

I don't deny that eating a nice steak, or a lamb casserole, roast chicken and freshly cooked fish and chips are a delight at any time. I can smell the delicious aroma of these and many other favourites of mine right now as I am typing these words.

But yet ... there's another delicacy which most of us have probably not partaken in, which goes unnoticed by our culinary experts and is indeed far cheaper than anything you can buy at your supermarket, delicatessen or top of the range boucherie!


Can you imagine how much meat is left lying there on the road every day to rot away in the sun instead of resting nicely on your plate next to your favourite vegetables? And it's FREE folks. You don't have to pay for it.

Just stop the car and pick up the remains of that squashed squirrel. You may need a spade for this, but on the positive side the meat has already been tenderised by the weight of the vehicle which run him over.

If this makes you squeamish, don't worry. 

Drive on a few more miles and you'll most likely find a dead rabbit, or a dead fox which will serve you as a neck scarf as well as a meal.

Or if you're lucky you may find a dead pheasant, (I said pheasant, not peasant - pay attention). Or indeed some other bird like a crow or a sparrow even, or maybe you could enjoy the delicacy of dead frogs and toads attempting to cross the road and not quite making it to the other side. They may be a bit squashy on the road, but a few minutes in a blender with some spices will make you a delicious soup, or gravy.

The possibilities are endless. And the beauty of it all is that the cuisine varies depending on which country you're in. 

Can you imagine kangaroo steaks from Australia? Sheep from New Zealand or Wales? Reindeer or moose or buffalo? Geese and turkeys? Prickly hedgehogs or even wild haggis in Scotland's Highlands?

The roads are full of food for you to enjoy. Even scraping the dead insects from the front of your car can provide an appetising meal if you put your mind to it.

So help the environment and keep our roads clean. Take a roadkill to your kitchen today. Nothing looks better when viewed on your plate with some vegetables.

Except that bicycle you ran over the other day!


  1. You're just now figuring this out?! Boy, we've been eating Road Kill for years down har' in the Sawth. *giggle* Possum is especially good with chopped onions and other herbs. (I know ... ewwwwww)
    Reminds me of a joke:
    Why did the chicken cross the road?
    To show the possum how.
    (How many dead chickens have you seen along the road?)
    Hope your day is blessed. ~:)

    1. Hi Sparky,

      There's a restaurant in England where you bring in your road kill and they'll cook it for you.

      God bless you.


    You've got to know how to cook "IT"...LOL... :)


    God Bless you and yours

    1. Not much different than rabbit.

      God bless you and your family.



God bless you.
