Before I met Mountain Man, I had never eaten venison.
Not to my knowledge, anyway. Once we got married, we always tried to choose healthy meats: ground turkey, lean ground beef…however, when we moved into our house, 6 years ago, one of my husbands co-workers gave us some venison. I knew nothing about cooking deer meat, so I started by just cooking it like other ground meats, and adding it into our spaghetti, or taco salads. The first time I tasted it, I was hooked. It was so tender and juicy and it just melted in your mouth.
I hope everyone had a safe and Happy Holiday time with your loved ones! Ours was fun, hectic, and non-stop for like 5 days straight, which resulted in 4 out of 5 of my household getting fevers and snotty noses. It’s in those moments I am extremely thankful for a caring, and attentive husband, coffee, and essential oils. Thankfully, we are all on the mend.
Speaking of Christmas…
Last week, we were at that point where we were going to be heading out of town, and busy with lots of family gatherings over the Christmas holiday, and didn’t want to do a big grocery trip, only to have the food not get eaten. We had to get creative. There were a few items in my pantry and fridge that I had, to come up with a recipe for: Chicken, carrots, milk, flour, and few other odds and ends. What to do? What. To. Do?
