Alligator meat has a very mild taste and readily
adapts to recipes to veal, chicken and most seafoods. Choice cuts of
meat, primarily the tail and jaw, can be used in any recipe. The body
and leg meat, with just a little extra preparation and special recipes,
can be just as tasty. I recommend cubing the meat for extra tenderness
or pounding fillets with a meat mallet.
Regardless of what cut of alligator meat you are
using, all fat and sinew must be removed before freezing or preparing.
Even the yellowish fat between the layers should be removed. When using
leg or body meat, we recommend removing the white tendons and vessels as
Alligator meat has been successfully frozen for
over a year. This was done by removing all fat, wrapping well in
cellophane and then again in freezer paper. Alligator meat can be
tenderized in several different ways. Some restaurants run each piece of
meat through a cubing machine. Other restauranteurs recommend pounding
each peice of alligator with a meat mallet until thin, usually about one
inch. All restaurants recommend cutting alligator meat across the grain
for a more tender piece of meat.
Body and leg meat cuts are excellent choices for
burgers, casseroles, ground meat, soups and stews. Jaw and tail meat
work well for baked, cutlet recipes and fried foods.
Regardless of which cut of meat you use, you will
find alligator to be a very delicious and versatile meat. It is also low
in fat, making it a great item for the calorie conscious person.

CF, it's been working for me, so far.
So, anyways, the month of July is a bit stressful around here. That's the month my brother's two kids move in with us for the, yes, entire month. This year they brought a friend (long story), so I have 3 18 yr-olds in my house and my kitchen. None of them drive, so they all need rides to all the normal 18 yr-old stuff; mom signed them up for 8 am classes every day, insisted the get jobs on the other side of town (by her house), the mall, etc.
Then, my neighbor moved this morning, and last Friday found a new mama cat on her back porch, along with these. I'm fostering them until they can at least walk, so these are the latest house pests. They all arrived in a carrier last night, so I left the door open and went to bed. When I woke up, Mom was lurking under my bed so I moved babies into their new cardboard home. I think she's a tortoiseshell with amber eyes, but I'm not really sure. I figure I'll leave her alone until she feels like coming out. So far, not a peep out of any of the kittens since 9 last night, I'm hoping when they do wake up hungry she'll come out and to take care of them.
Edit to say, I can see a way to make this pic smaller, so I'll confine it to one, but they are so adorable. They're only 4 days old!
