Thursday 13, Edition #48: Cookin' with Lizards

Since everybody loved my Lizard Stew so much, I been thinking maybe I could think of other delicious ways to serve up some lizards. So I am prepared the next time I catch one. Here are 13 ideas I had for serving lizards:
  1. Peanut-butter and Lizard Sandwiches. Or, you can just call it PB&L.
  2. Lizard Jerky. If you find some deaded lizards that got all dried up by the sun, you do not even have to do any cooking for this dish!
  3. Buffalo Lizard Wings. Well, lizards do not really have wings. But their tiny front legs are almost like little wings. And I think they would taste good with a side of blue cheese dressing and celery.
  4. Lizard Tetrazzini. You can use this recipe when you have some old, tough lizards. I think the cream of mushroom soup will disguise the stringy flavor.
  5. Lizard Noodle Casserole. Another recipe that calls for cream of mushroom soup! Please do not use onions in this recipe.
  6. Lizard Sashimi. This is one of my favorites. You must be sure to use only very fresh lizards.
  7. Beans and Lizard Franks. The hard part of this recipe is making the little lizard frankfurters. You might have to bring your lizards to the butcher's shop for help with that part.
  8. Lizard Tacos. Ole! These are delicious with extra cheese and sour cream. If I was allowed to drink, I would have mine with a beer. If you are having Mexican Food Night, you can call your beer "cerveza."
  9. Lizard Pizza. This is almost as good as anchovy flavor!
  10. Lizard Tempura. Cooking with hot oil is dangerous, so you should probably have your Mommie help you with this one.
  11. Lizard Pot Pie. This recipe calls for Four and Twenty Lizards, Baked in a Pie. I am not sure where I learned that. But I am almost certain that is correct.
  12. Herb-Crusted Lizard. I recommend using catnip for the herb.
  13. Lizard Chiffon Pie. I never tried this recipe. It might not be very delicious. If it tastes bad, you can just eat the creamy topping.
I must tell you that you might have to buy your own baking utensils. Because so far, my Mommie will not allow me to cook any of these dishes in her kitchen. Even if I rinse the lizards off real good. I might try to save my allowance for an Easy-Bake Oven. Tune in this Sunday to see how that goes...

Bon Appetit!

67 Notes for Daisy:

Dragonheart said...

There certainly are a lot of different ways to make and serve lizards, Daisy. Too bad your mom won't let you use her kitchen to try out your recipes.

Astrid, Kashim & Othello said...

these are some interesting dishes Daisy. Unfortunately we have now lizards here in Austria otherwise we would have tried to talk momma into letting us try some of your recipes.

We hope you can convince your mom tho to let you use her kitchen.

purrrs, K&O

poppyq said...

We has lots of lizards in New Zealand dat you would like Miss Daisy. Cept my mum says the man at da post office would be very grumpy if we tried to post you some.

Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

Maybe you can just make it 4-and-20 lizards baked into a pie? Then serve it up ala-mode?

Frankly, I'm all so skipping the cooking and going straight to the eating.

Yoggie said...

He, he!! That's a classic!!!!! Very yummie!

Ramses said...

Oh wow, you'z such a talented girlycat! Those recipes sound great the only trouble is we don't get lizards in the UK, can we'z substitute froggies for lizards?

Wow, those sounds like some awfully good ideas for lizard dishes. Next time we visit, you will have to let us sample them.

Patti said...

Great recipes, Daisy! Maybe you can keep working on your Mommy to allow you to cook in the kitchen. Just be careful with any sharp utensils! :)

Annie Mosaic Cat said...

Truly an inspiring post, Daisy. (If anyone in this house cooked.)
I am very fond of Lizard Pesto.
If you do not have pinenuts, walnuts are OK to use.

Karen said...

They all sound (kitty) delicious Daisy. Although I prefer my lizards alive and scurrying around.

Scout said...

You should have your own show on the food network! Or should it be on the animal channel? Hmmm, I will have to think about that one.

Purrs,
Scout

Judy said...

jenianddean said...

Daisy - I love your chef's hat! And I think Josie is going to try and make a catnip crusted lizard. She said that sounded yummy! Thanks for all the cooking tips. As always, you are just too cute!!

The Meezers said...

wow, you should haf entered the Next Iron Chef comp-a-tishun, you would haf winned paws down!

David E Maeda said...

Excellent and very thorough list. I'm tempted to try the lizard sashimi myself.

I think your mom should let you drink beer and use the kitchen but not at the same time.

Gemini said...

Be very careful with your easy bake oven Daisy. You are getting to be quite a chef!

Captain Jack and Dante said...

Our Daddy makes great tempura so maybe we can make him make us some lizzard flavor. This is a great list daisy - we have to try a lot of your ideas!

The Furry Kids said...

Those sound like awesome recipes! I wish we had lizards here. :(

Love,
Tazo

Tybalt said...

Daisy, I certainly think you have the makings of a Great Chef . . . plus you look adorable in the hat!

Siani said...

Eek! I started reading this earlier when I was eating my lunch (no lizards). Lizard Jerky sounds quite yucky, but I love pizza so much, I'd probably give Lizard Pizza a try, although I prefer pepperoni. Happy TT!

My list of thirteen bizarre phobias is up at Siani's Pot-Pourri.

PB & J said...

Oh my, does this mean we should give Jake a new name - something with an L? Then we'd be PB&L too!

Sunny's Mommy said...

Daisy, your PB&L sandwich looks very tasty. I'm sure the rest of your recipes are tasty, too. Keep working on your Mommie to try to use her kitchen and utensils ;-)

DEBRA said...

Daisy

I think you are a master chef!

Scooby, Shaggy & Scout said...

Great list Daisy. We are drooling just thinking about these delicious dishes!

Queen Snickers or Empress said...

I really wish I had caught that lizard impersonator now! Maybe momma will let me hunt in the garage for him and I can start cooking. ~Queen Snickers

Clover said...

Daisy! You are so adorable! I had some funny comment to make about lizards, but I totally forgot what it was when I saw your cute little curly self with the chef hat!
Love Clover xo

Bounce, Lucy and Trixie said...

Great recipes for lizards Daisy! Maybe you could write a cooking book with all your lizard recipes. They could pay you in Temptations!

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Those are excellent recipes Daisy. Unfortunately, we don't have lizards in Canada. I wonder can you buy them in the frozen food section at Safeway?

I like the way you took your hat from your Pilgrim fashion and used it as a chef's hat. It makes a wonderful chef's hat!

Skeezy said...

WOW! I am so lukky to have a speshul frend hoo is a gore-may cook! Man, thoze lizzerd dishes sownd even better than Fansy Feest sliced turkey in gravey!

MoMo said...

Oh Daisy, you're such a classic! Those dishes are very yummy and very well presented. Perhaps you should consider opening a gourmet kitty restaurant specializing in lizard dishes! Chef Daisy!

Mo said...

Oh Daisy, you always make me laugh.
Lizard Pot Pie.
You crack me up!

Not The Mama

Skeeter And LC said...

If we can cath a lizard we're gonna try one of those recipees!

MoMo said...

Angus said...

I especially like the Lizard Tacos! Put a little salsa on the side and maybe some queso and chips-oh, and a lime for the Cerveza!

Artsy Catsy said...

Lizard Jerky - that's a good one!! Hey Daisy, have you thought about auditioning to co-star in one of those Geico Insurance TV commercials with the lizard? You'd be a shoo-in!!

Rocky

Henry Helton said...

I really wish we had lizards here in Ohio. The only lizards we have are caged as pets in bean's homes. Not as fun.

Karen Jo said...

Those are all very interesting recipes, Daisy. I don't think I'll be trying any of them, but I bet kitties would love them.

Team Tabby said...

Those recipes sound so good. Do you think you can get the UPS man to bring us some lizards?

Mindy Moe

Samantha & Tigger said...

Yummy! Thank heavens we live in FL, cause we have lizards everywhere. We think we'll talk Mom into cooking the Lizard Pizza first!
Your FL furiends,

The Crew said...

Hmmm...interesting choices of ingredients. Mom was going to make tuna casserole next week but I wonder if I could find a lizard to substitute for the tuna. I'll get on that right away!

Oh wait...we don't have lizards here. Do you think a mousie would be a good ingredient?

Your friend
Misty

Ruis said...

So busy with my directors job and 24h a day on CCSI set takes its toll... I miss many posts in the blogosphere and your every day news!

All my birthday lizards are eaten, Daisy. :( But number 3 - Buffelo Lizard Wings - sounds so great, I think I ask Karl to catch me some new lizards.

Ruis:)

Chase said...
