Back from dinner on the town. There's only one food group in New Mexico...Green Chili...I didn't see any of it in any of the above recipes...
But I'd be glad to share some:

My absolute favorite, cuz its not so spicy hot and very tasty, is a breakfast casserole that you can even make with the canned chili and its great nuked..you can even freeze little individual portions.

1 lb. ground cooked sausage (Jimmy Dean or the like is fine)
8 eggs, beaten
2 cups milk
6 slices of bread, cubed
1 lb. ground cooked sausage (Jimmy Dean or the like is fine)
2 small cans drained green chili (or ~ 6 freshly roasted and chopped)
1 heaping tablespoon dry mustard
1 cup cubed cheese (1/2 cheddar and 1/2 Monterrey Jack)

1 cup shredded cheese to sprinkle on top during the last 5 minutes of baking

Mix it all, except the last cup o' cheese, together in a large bowl. It really should sit in the fridge for an hour before baking, but it works fine if you don't wait.
Pour it in a 9X13 pan, cover w/foil, bake at 375 for 1 hour.

Served with warm biscuits...its yummy.

You can prepare it and freeze it before cooking it. You can also prepare it a day in advance and keep it in the fridge until your ready to bake it.

We started a whole forum for this, of course we're interested. I may compile an entire ACO cookbook. Should be interesting given the variety of demographics we have here.

Ellie, I hope you are keeping track and mean to follow through.

Maybe we could call it:

"It's really NOT roadkill - the ACO recipe book"

or

"No we don't cook cats!"

or

"Wanna treat? What ACOs find good to eat!"

or

"yes we do have a deal with the chinese restaurant. We don't perpetuate the myth that they serve cat and they don't call us dogcatchers!"

or one of my police supply favorites

"Cooking with CAPSTUN - the guide to OC in everday food"

maybe

"Recipes for Disaster - For people with strong lower intestinal tracts..."

or

"Things even my kids will eat"

Any others?

Maybe we should be recruiting members from Sonoma County ... they got wine, they got fancy mustard, they got homemade olive oil ... They got recipes!!! Just look:

Emu Barbecue Halted at County Animal Shelter

Vineyards border the enclosed pasture where Michele Mussen imagined an emu grazing, rescued from the Sonoma County Animal Shelter. Before she finalized plans to transport the stray bird, Mussen learned that someone else was about to take it home. The details came later from an anonymous caller: The emu had been given to a shelter worker who shot it, dressed it and was about to serve it up at a staff barbecue.

"The whole thing is disgusting," Mussen said. "That was a domesticated emu. It could have been part of a petting zoo, and instead it was eaten."

Barry Evans, who oversees the animal shelter, said the barbecue was about to get under way when he learned the emu was on the menu. He said he immediately went outside and told staffers the emu wasn't to be served. Follow-up inquiry indicated the bird was neither barbecued nor eaten on shelter premises, although it did end up on someone's plate, he said.

Evans said he since has instituted a policy requiring his approval of all staff adoptions. He said staff members also are under instructions to ask more pointed questions of anyone adopting animals that could be used as meat.

"I looked at this really closely, and I discussed it thoroughly with all my staff, and the issue is we don't want to give the image of, 'Hey, your animal comes to the shelter, somebody may eat it.' That's not the idea at all," he said.

*****************

What I think is great is that "the issue is, we don't want the image ..." Isn't the issue the actual EMU that got barbequed???? For the eating pleasure of the quote animal sheltering unquote staff?!?!?!?!?!?!



Jeeez ....

I don't think anyone's ever going to come up with a better one than that.

Domesticated emu? Ok, its kick can disembowel a person and they are usually raised for MEAT. Hmmm. Its a stray, we hold it, we dispose of it. It is NOT petting zoos best material. Having been to OZ and met one in a wildlife park, I can testify to this FIRST HAND (which I almost lost!)

Now, the image of eating what comes through the door is not a good one. But many shelters that deal with deer do shoot them and donate them to local food banks.

Most likely this was not a "pet" but an escaped "product" and the fate it met was EXACTLY what would have been in store for it had it not escaped. Do I condone it? Not in this case as they were possibly not open with the person who turned it in... And that must be a whole nother story!

The boss needs to have better handle on staff. For us, ACOs may not adopt anything that they come into possession of as a part of their duties. It creates the opportunity for these kinds of problems.

Emu BBQ... I'll ask my Australian friends for a recipe....

Excellent rule. Would save Kerri from adopting about 30 turtles a year ...



NOT THAT SHE COOKS THEM ... or keeps them for that matter. (She's our self-appointed turtle rescuer.)

Kerri says "You haven't spent any time with my turtles or you would appreciate them much more."

I bet that goes for emus too ....
