I Love Frog Legs

I love them fresh.....Just gigged out of the ditch...>My dad would do this when I was a kid......But the bad people spoiled it for the others....


They would catch a live frog.....Cut it's back legs off....and then just toss it back into the ditch.....Only to watch the frog try to swim away with just it's poor front feet.....That was just not right...


Now my Daddy was different...He raised us that you should respect the thing that is giving it's life so you might eat.....He would gig them.....Kill them quick...and he would bring them home whole......Cut the legs off there...and then would do one of a few things....


Grind them up and feed the dogs.....Cut them up for fish bait.....Bury them...in the Vegetables garden....


our house...Nothing went to waist...You used it all

My dad was a depression era child. They used and saved everything from old nails, to door knobs.<br />
<br />
He grew up on a farm to which hard times came, and they were forced to eat his pet pig.<br />
They built them differently back then. <br />
<br />
I sure do hope that times like that won't return, but I don't know anymore. I thought I would never see the day that they started to lay off nurses and public works employees. Especially when those were two jobs you knew was safe.<br />
<br />
But if there was one thing that was never tolerated in our house and that was wasting food.

We caught them alive in the pond when I grew up, Yes they are sooooo good. ...:-)
