Clark Gable’s Hunters’ Breakfast

Every hunter should know how to prepare and cook his own birds and game. It’s the finishing touch to a day spent in the open, when you return home with an appetite as sharp as a razor. My specialty is doves. Here’s a recipe that is simple and sure fire, if you just follow the instructions. Of course, the first thing to do is to get your limit of doves. Sometimes it’s easier said than done, I Know.” – Clark Gable

First, pick the doves dry, put in boiling water and cook until tender. (Be careful; however, that the meat is firm and not cooked until it falls off the bones). While the doves are on the fire, prepare the sauce and cook the macaroni. The sauce goes like this:

Melt butter in a double boiler, stir in flour mixed with prepared mustard, add milk, stirring constantly, until the sauce is thickened to the right consistency. Toss in some chopped mushrooms and sliced hard boiled eggs.

Cook macaroni in boiling water until tender – drain in colander, pour cold water over macaroni until all the starcch is removed. Place doves on a heated platter and surround with the cooked macaroni. Pour white sauce over birds. Don’t get too much on the macaroni. It makes it soggy. Garnish with sprigs of parsley and pimento, if you feel ritzy. Serve with toasted, well-buttered French bread.

“I’ll have another helping, thanks.”

Randolph Scott All American Actor

Randolph Scott Memorial Photo

Randolph Scott All American Actor

Randolph Scott was a handsome all American leading man who developed into one of Hollywood’s greatest and most popular Western stars. Mr. Scott, another one of the great actors of yesteryear, was best friends with Cary Grant, Fred Astaire, and the Rev. Billy Graham. He was a conservative Republican and one of Hollywood’s biggest supporters of Ronald Reagan as governor of California. Read more about this amazing man on IMDB.

Quote

My retirement is both voluntary and involuntary. One reason, and this is voluntary, is the impact of television. All old movies are turning up on television, and frankly making pictures doesn’t interest me anymore. Another reason is that the film industry is in a declining state.

George Randolph Scott was born on January 23, 1898 and passed away on March 2, 1987. He was an American film actor whose career spanned from 1928 to 1962. That’s a total of 34 years and a whole lot of movies!
