Uncle Al’s eagle-lynx-sculpin partisan potpourri

Here’s an all-American treat for your next wedding, graduation party or $1,000-a-plate fundraiser:

Two bald eagles, killed, plucked and cubed.

One Canada lynx, killed, skinned, gutted and ground.

Two five-gallon buckets of sculpin, gutted, decapitated and scaled.

Five pounds of onions, drawn and quartered.

Three five-gallon buckets of mustard greens, stemmed.

14 gallons water.

Four one-gallon cans of creamed corn.

3/4 gallon of magnesium chloride, strained.

5 ounces cayenne pepper.

1 quart beetle-killed pine-infused oil

Juniper-flavored vinegar to taste

1 box saltine crackers.

1 liter of gin.


Cocktail onions

3 ibuprofen.

Make yourself a martini.

In a 55-gallon barrel over a roaring tire fire, combine the water, mag chloride, corn, sculpin, greens and pepper. Bring to a simmer for 6 hours.

Make another martini. Maybe two.

Brown eagle cubes in a cup of the oil. Reserve the cubes, and throw the guts, claws and beaks at the cat.

Make 1 tbsp meatballs from the ground lynx and crackers. Add vinegar to taste. Sautee in a cup of the oil. Tan the hide to make a pair of lovely moccasins.

After the mixture in the barrel has simmered for six hours, add the eagle cubes and lynx meatballs. Bring to a rolling boil for 18 seconds. Remove the barrel from the tire fire with a forklift. Don’t spill!

Make another martini.

Serve, collect money for your political action committee, then take a nap. Wake up, take ibuprofen. Leftovers, if any, can be used for aromatic beauty masks at the local spa.
