In the Kitchen with Linda & Dinner Menu

I haven’t had a In the Kitchen with Linda post in a very long time! It’s time I got back to it! These posts help keep me organized in the kitchen. I hope they help you, too, with tips, menu ideas, and recipes.


Last week I made a bacon wrapped venison tenderloin. So good! My family loves it this way.

I recently made venison summer sausage for the first time. It was pretty easy. I used a prepackaged seasoning mix.

Instead of using the casings in the kit, I wrapped the shaped meat in foil, then baked. After they were cooled, I cut the ends off and wrapped them in plastic wrap. Don’t worry, the ends didn’t go to waste! My family ate them.

The next day, I vacuum sealed 9 of the 10 sausages. I put the 10th in the fridge for eating. I don’t usually eat summer sausage, but everyone that tasted it liked it.

I put these 9 in the chest freezer to store. So far, the family is leaving them alone. lol I warned them that this is the only batch I’m making this year so the better make it last. lol I’m saving them for holiday meals or other special occasions.
