1 1/2 cups whole milk

What Are Squabs

Squabs are young pigeons and are usually expensive as they are considered a delicacy to eat. The birds are very small and you do not get much meat off them, as their bones are tiny. After the egg has been incubated for seventeen days by the parent birds, the squab hatches.

At first, it is fed a milky substance called pigeon milk which increases in thickness as the squab grows older. The squab lies in the nest for four weeks and in that, time puts on fat, which for lack of exercise is exceptionally tender.

The squab, until it is four weeks old, stays in the nest, and is fed with seeds and beans, and kept as fat as possible. The vegetable protein in the seeds is changed to animal protein in the squabs. They are ready for market when four weeks old since in Egypt, squab is considered a delicacy. Ancient Egyptians began using pigeons for ceremonial and culinary purposes at least 4000 years ago.

Squabs should be more freely consumed, and one will find them most appetizing. A great variety of dishes may be prepared with them and one will never tire of their delicious flavor and their tender qualities. One great recipe is the recipe above, Egyptian Braised Pigeon. Happy eating your new-found favorite Eygpitian food recipe.

Nature Holds Many Secrets | Hurricanes, Angry African Ancestors

Eastern coasts of Caribbean, United States, and South America, are in danger of being blasted by hurricanes wind and rain during hurricane season from June through November. But, why?  

The scientific reason why is because of Africa’s Sahara desert dust storms and the transition of thunderstorms off the west coast of Africa. The waters in the North Atlantic Ocean are typically at their warmest while the Sahara is at its hottest from July through October, so the chances of a hurricane are highest during these months.
Hurricanes are gigantic weather systems using convection, the movement of hot and cold air, to create dangerous storms. They are rotating heat engines powered by the warmth of tropical waters having three main parts, the eye, the eyewall, and rainbands. 

Hurricanes cannot form just anywhere in the world due to the need for hot and humid air. They normally form close to the equator and move west or northwest. Hurricane Alley is a stretch of warm water through the Atlantic Ocea…

Survival of the Fattest Meaning
The copper statue Survival of the Fattest by Jens Galschiøt and Lars Calmar was created in 2002. The fat woman is holding a pair of scales as a symbol of justice however; she is closing her eyes so the justice. Galschiot symbolized the woman as being blind, refusing to see the obvious injustice.
