The Darker Side of Dishes

In case you aren't familiar with THIS PINTEREST PAGE, (Disgusting Recipes), you need to be.  Be careful, though, it is bottomless (both in figurative horror and seriously, I've scrolled down for about 20 minutes and still haven't found the end of it).  LET THAT BE YOUR WARNING.

Bon Appetit!  You'll be charmed!  They're "dainty".  Just be sure to use the GOOD suet.

Okay, so I was expecting the first one to be some silly thing like pigs in blankets, but dang.. actual squirrels in cider.

I thought the bachelors buffet thing was some kind of food-baked-in-pastry thing at first. Mayo, mustard,cream, and gelatin? Yuck.

The last one's the winner. It looks horrid and upon reading the recipe, it probably tastes horrid, too.
Did people actually go out to the back yard and catch a few squirrels? That's just mean.

And I know suet pudding was no big deal at one time, but I just remember my mom hanging up big chunks of suet in the winter in these onion bags to feed the birds…and I say, "Please, no!"
I remember my grandmother talking about squirrel stew when I was young. Of course, she grew up in Missouri during the depression. I also recall my grandfather mentioning hunting squirrels when he was young, but he shot 'em with a pellet gun or .22.
We hunted squirrels when I was a kid. The only animal I've ever shot and eaten was a squirrel. It was actually pretty tasty. After that I left the hunting to my brother and father, though.
We caught one inadvertently in the wilds of suburbia once long ago. Poor little guy managed to get in the 2nd floor bathroom via a wire and an open window and was found drowned in the toilet in the morning. I'm pretty sure it was Dad's job to fish him out and dispose of him.
