Dear Kim,

okay, okay? Have you no common decency? We use chickens in America for stage props at rock concerts. One good bite and they're gone.

We are outraged by your cruelty to chickens, however your suggestion that people eat cats is even more horrific. In these hard economic times, there have been disturbingly increased levels of butchering domestic pets for food. Our chapter in Germany is protesting a family who publicized their recipe for schnauzer schnitzel. Your family is well known for substituting pigeon, swan and sparrow in your "chicken" dishes in Fairfield. Madam Wang, have you no shame?

There's always a place for animals in my life, right next to the potatoes.

I don't eat salads, that's what the main course eats.

Meat, it's whats for dinner.

With the high cost of food now-a-days you will probably find people wanting to raise more than chickens!

Oh! Wait! 405,000 homes foreclosed in 2007. Maybe we should demolish them and create Community Gardens in the neighborhoods. Yes, farming, fresh produce.

Ingredients -
1/2 pound Monkey Brain, coarsely chopped
2 ounces peeled Shrimp, finely chopped
1 teaspoon Brown Sugar
1 tablespoon Chinese Rice Wine
1 tablespoon Light Soy Sauce
1 teaspoon finely chopped Green Onion
1 teaspoon chopped fresh Ginger Root
24 (3.5 inch square) Wonton Wrappers
3 cups Monkey Brain Stock
1/8 cup finely chopped Green Onion Preparation:
1. In a large bowl, combine monkey brain, shrimp, sugar, wine, soy sauce, 1 teaspoon chopped green onion and ginger. Blend well, and let stand for 25 to 30 minutes.
Place about one teaspoon of the filling at the center of each wonton skin. Moisten all 4 edges of wonton wrapper with water, then pull the top corner down to the bottom, folding the wrapper over the filling to make a triangle. Press edges firmly to make a seal. Bring left and right corners together above the filling. Overlap the tips of these corners, moisten with water and press together. Continue until all wrappers are used.
FOR SOUP: Bring the monkey brain stock to a rolling boil. Drop wontons in, and cook for 5 minutes. Garnish with chopped green onion, and serve.

Back in the War, we'd eat whatever we could find off the dead gooks. Monkey brain was sometimes on the menu.
