Hoping everyone had a very Merry Christmas!
This fudge was so fast and tastes great! If you love dark chocolate, you will love this fudge.
Only 12 more days ’til Christmas!
Tastes like a sugar cookie, only fluffier.
There is always an abundance of ground venison this time of year. Our ground meat is mainly from the ribs and neck. I have found it’s ok to use it in any beef recipe. A lot of people look for recipes specifically for venison to get rid of the gamey taste. We don’t have a problem with our meat tasting gamey. My husband guts his deer in the woods, hangs , skins, and quarters them as soon as he gets home. The meat is then packed in ice and worked up over the next week. Just drain the water as your ice melts and replenish with more ice. My uncle gave us meat that he had done at a butcher once. The ground meat was very bloody, and the steaks were bloody and still on the bone. We couldn’t eat either one. It all has to do with how you care for your meat.
I wanted to find a meatball recipe that everyone loves because we like BBQ meatballs along with our Christmas Eve snacks. This one was a hit. We tried it last week with a jar of our homemade BBQ sauce and last night in our spaghetti. I have to say my son hates spaghetti but discovered he loves spaghetti and meatballs!
Fast, easy, and very tasty!
Christmas really is the best time of year. There’s nothing better than celebrating the birth of our Saviour.
Thanksgiving was great. Quentin worked until 3:30, so me and my kids had all day to prepare dinner. Anyone else work retail? You just learn to roll with it. 🙂
Quentin has harvested 7 deer already. We are enjoying the meat for sure. Our venison favorites have been corned venison and a new venison summer sausage recipe. I will be back to share more about what we do with all that meat!
There have been some really cold nights already, and we even woke to ice coming down yesterday morning. We used it as an excuse to skip church and curled up on the couch together to listen to A Christmas Carol audio book.
We got a Great Pyrenees puppy back in October. He’s not only the most beautiful dog I’ve ever seen, but he’s gentle and calm and makes our days a little brighter. Yep, I love that crazy puppy. 🙂
Our garden is still producing! I am picking lettuce, kale, and radishes. We are also starting to get eggs! I think about half of our chickens have started laying. We had to start all over mid May after a predator wiped out our entire flock. We currently have 6 Americaunas and 6 Buff Brahmas.
I am going to share some pictures from the last little bit but will be back more often to share with you some of our Christmas season.
