Happy Groundhog Day or Bon Porc de la Terre (happy hog of the ground) from France! Where is Bill Murray when you need him?! Not in Paris unfortunately. And speaking of groundhogs, I have noticed a lot of searches for “groundhog”, “groundhog recipes”, groundhog desserts”, and “groundhog menu” hitting my humble little groundhog free zone.
I wasn’t aware that this subterranean fête coincided with any sort of a gastronomic celebration but perhaps that accounts for all the recent searches landing on my site for “hamster merry”, “hamster cuisine”, “hamster my head”, “mes amis les hamster”, and the one that almost made alert PETA, “how to cook a hamster”! Boil a leek for God's sake, but please don't eat your hamster! or a groundhog!
