I usually blog about what our hobby farm garden provides, but lately we've had some good eats from not just the flora but the fauna.
My son shot and cleaned a rabbit and I made a delicious, fall-off-the-bone stew in the Crock Pot with a simple soy sauce and onion gravy. It does taste like chicken.
He also shot a deer and we have a lot of venison in the freezer and we had some delicious bacon wrapped venison steaks, hot off the broiler. I make a fabulous venison stew (secret ingredients: juniper berries and Marsala wine). It he has continued success with hunting, I may be in the market for a meat grinder.
The five chickens are laying about three eggs a day. One of the two who weren't laying is now laying a couple of times a week, enough to earn her board. The other one may be heading towards the Crock Pot.
Thanksgiving was a turkey and Christmas dinner will be a ham. For the Protein Group, I think we have variety covered!
