Venison Stew

Venison Stew

If you are lucky enough to access venison this year, you have got to try this venison stew.  We were gifted a deer shoulder this fall from our patient Lowell (thanks again Lowell, you’re the best!).  Check out what I did with the backstrap he gave us, too!  I’ve still got a few more roasts…

Smoked Turkey Pea Soup

Happy Monday!  Hope your weekend was relaxing and fun.  Mine was both of those, with a little bit of work mixed in.  But the work was fun, of course, otherwise I wouldn’t put the time in (lol).  Dave and I are helping to plan and deliver a seminar titled “Rebuilding the Temple” at our church,…
