The holiday season often involves eating lots of rich foods, and meals centered around turkey, ham, and perhaps, if you’re really old-fashioned, a goose.
For those of you who would like a bit of respite from the fancy stuff, why not try this recipe? It’s very simple; all it requires are common kitchen ingredients which you probably have on hand, and six doves.
If you are a bit squeamish about eating a dove (which, after all, is the bird of love because doves mate for life), don’t worry: the doves will be dead before you buy them. Who knows? You could be eating Mrs. Dove while your own husband or wife eats its mate!
