Recipe: Doves the Easy Way!


Doves the Easy Way

Doves the Easy Way!


12 medium doves, cleaned

1/2 tsp. seasoned salt

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

1 cup water, divided

1/2 cup melted butter or margarine

2 Tbsp. lemon juice

1 Tbsp. all-purpose flour

Cooked wild rice

Do not wash doves unless necessary and then very quickly. Wipe with a clean, damp cloth or paper towels.

Place doves in a large iron skillet. Combine salt and pepper & sprinkle over doves.  Pour 1/2 cup water into skillet; cover tightly, and team over medium heat 20 minutes. Remove lid and continue cooking until all water is gone.

Add butter and lemon juice to skillet. Continue cooking until doves are brown on all sides, turning occasionally; remove doves from skillet and place in a casserole.

Add flour to drippings in skillet, stirring until smooth; cook over low heat until lightly browned. Add remaining 1/2 cup water; cook until thickened, stirring occasionally.

Pour gravy over doves; serve with wild rice. Yield: 6 servings.


One of my favorite joke sites online is:

Here’s one of his priceless pieces!

A man seeking to join a border state Sheriff’s Department is being interviewed.

The Sergeant doing the interview says: “Your qualifications all look good, but there is an attitude suitability test that you must take before you can be accepted.”

Then, sliding a service pistol across the desk, he says: “Take this pistol and go out and shoot six illegal aliens, six meth dealers, six extremists, and a rabbit.”

“Why the rabbit?”

“Great attitude,” says the Sergeant. “When can you start?”
