    Seemed only fitting to have her with some garden sweet corn and green beans. My wife really liked the deer chops and I did too they are, fall off the bone tender.

    Mmm I'm jealous of people who have a doe season. Buck only here. Had some roadkill doe though, amazing difference from the buckiness I'm used to! Looks delicious! I'm looking forward to some venison stew.... my favorite.

    Pumpkin-carrot puree soup! I'm so thankful to be cooking something homemade! Canned carrots from last year's garden. Pumpkin from this year's garden. Didn't have any homemade broth though, so bouillon cubes to the rescue.

    Sounds good @tortoise! I made butternut squash soup with a bone broth base last night. Pretty darn tasty!

    Son in law came over and helped me put plastic over the screens on the front porch. When we were done, I said I'm going to give you guys a home cooked meal but your going to have to cook it. We went out to the shop and from the deep freezer, I gave him two large thick deer backstrap steaks, two quarts of blanched green beans and 4 ears of sweet corn. All harvested from my home garden :)

    Tonight I cooked chicken wings and baked beans. We love wings and I think that might have been my last package. The good news is DH is enthusiastic about raising chicken CCX in the spring.

    But of course, home raised CCX are the best! Store bought CCX doesn't even compare.
