    Venison, frog legs, and panfish fillets. Marinate in vegan tears for a special taste!

    Vension, frog legs and fried fish go well with cornbread and buttermilk! So does chicken of the woods! Fungus and berries are cheap, same as pawpaws!

    I like the language you speak. I was all but self-sufficient for years, living the good life. I went back to work pretty much full time a few years ago for the family business after my father retired. Now I'm stuck buying the fake CRAP we have come to know as food.

    I supplement with wild game and edibles when I can. It helps me remember who I am and where I come from.

    Homebrewing is another cheap way to use the land for nourishment. I just started several batches of blackberry and cherry wine today.

    Paw paws done good this year, but all we ever done was eat'em, maybe a little sprinkle of cinnamon sugar.
    Speaking of wine, possum berry makes about the finest wine there is when you can find them.
