I have slack on taking pictures of our food this week. I need to get in the habit of taking pictures of everything before I start eating.
We had another roast in the slow cooker with lots of vegetables last week. This one was a nice beef roast. Since everyone complains that I never make enough carrots, I used a whole 2 pound bag! The carrots come out so tender and flavorful when cooked with the roast. I added a little beef broth, worcestershire sauce, and a couple of tablespoons of cornstarch when I put everything in the slow cooker. It makes a nice sauce when everything is done.
Deer hunting season started here over the weekend. My husband went hunting, and got a 7 point buck. We process the meat ourselves. It’s a lot of work, but it’s definitely worth it. Sorry for the bad cell phone picture. He guts, skins, and quarters the deer before bringing it in the house. He cuts the meat, and I bag it and vacuum seal it. I have the easy part. lol
By vacuum sealing, I am able to keep the meat for a year. Well, if we can make it last that long! lol Hopefully, he gets another one before hunting season is over.
I’m trying a new recipe this week. Hope the family likes it! A couple of favorites, and venison twice rounds out this weeks menu. Over all, the family will be happy with this weeks meals. That’s a good thing.
