In a long story, evidenced by the fact that I don't associate with an ex-boyfriend anymore, I ate venison AS roadkill. Not that I knew this, it shouldn't go without saying, until AFTERWARDS.

I have no inherent objection to removing the best pieces from a freshly-struck deer. Some of the best venison I've ever had came from a deer hit one morning; a friend and I took the backstraps out and grilled them for dinner that night. Delicious.

My objection was moreso that he fed me roadkill without mentioning it WAS roadkill.

My friend Janis is mostly vegetarian, but actually has no problem eating meat from an animal that was killed accidentally. Deer are hit by cars all the time, and it would be a shame for those animals to go to waste if the carcass is usable!

When I was in a friend's car and he hit a deer that had already been hit, I called the state police to report it since the deer was right on the side of the road and seemed to be still alive. Jon was curious why the police dispatcher asked if we wanted the animal. I explained it was because in New York, they apparently have to offer it to you if you hit it... and if you don't want it, they can have it. Venison is valuable! :-)

Oh, the not-italicized things aren't ones I wouldn't like to try, they're just not things I have an urgent need to. :-) So where should I find some gjetost to try?

heh, I actually found it at Wegmans a couple of times. It comes in a little red square european-looking package.
