If we see mold on bread, cheese, jelly, etc., we carefully remove the mold and carry on. We also enjoy leftovers. Having said this, there was one food mentioned in the article that we bla- tantly waste. I'm talking about fish heads. Along with the fish heads, I have never made much use of the hearts and livers of the deer, an- telope, and elk I've killed. Of the thousands of pheasants I've bagged, I've never saved the hearts, livers, and gizzards, but I have been on hunts where a few of the guys did save those ringneck organs. Now for those fish heads. With walleyes that go two pounds or bet- ter, I generally remove the cheeks, so I'm not guilty of total waste. While I do a fair job filleting cheeks, I don't know where to begin when it comes to removing the remaining flesh from a fish head. Some folks don't like the large cheeks as they can be a bit chewy. Betsy generally batters and deep fries our walleye cheeks. I think cheeks would be an excellent substitute for clams in clam chowder, but I've never tried it. Years ago I told you of a Cree Indian friend. When I asked Miles about his favorite meal, he respond- ed, "Moose nose or jack cheeks." Jack is Canuck for northern pike. If I get my moose next fall, I just might try the moose nose if it isn't too much trouble. During my senior year at SDSU, John Janes, my Wessington Springs roommate, and I rented a room from economics professor, Felix Shaw. Felix, who had a home on Faculty Drive, was of Chinese descent, and he also rented a room to three Chinese students. We had quite a time sharing one kitchen, and a lot of very different odors cer- tainly came from that kitchen. I'm getting off the subject, but we also shared the only TV set, and our program choices were very dif- ferent. One Friday night John and I discovered how to get the TV all to ourselves. It was the night before the pheasant opener, and John and I decided to clean our shotguns while watching television. When John and I brought those guns into the living room, the room cleared right now! What had our Chinese friends once experienced? At that same time we did a lot of bank fishing for walleyes in Lake Poinsette, and we caught a lot of big walleyes. Our Chinese friends loved fish heads as much as I rel- ish prime rib, shrimp, and spaghet- ti, and their anticipation knew no bounds when we went fishing. Fe- lix encouraged us to fillet the fish in his kitchen where the Chinese anx- iously waited for the heads. I wish I had paid more attention to how they 5th Girls 3rd At Rob Marchand Memorial Tournament The 5th Grade girls played on Sat- with their tough press.
