In the Kitchen with Linda & Dinner Menu

My oldest son made me a late birthday cake last week. Of course, it was chocolate! lol

I was planning on putting a roast in the slow cooker one day last week, but knew I wouldn’t have enough time that morning to peel and cut the vegetables. So I prepped them the night before.

Yes, you can peel, cut, and store potatoes in the fridge for later use! Make sure they are completely covered in water.

This picture below is the same potatoes from above, after being in the fridge overnight. Simply drain, rinse, then use the potatoes. All I had to do that busy morning was put the roast and prepped veggies in the slow cooker.  Such a time saver!

My oldest son and his wife cooked dinner for me, and the rest of the family, on Friday night. A late birthday dinner. On a different night than the cake.  Why not spread out the birthday celebration?!

 

The chicken recipe they used was called Best Baked Chicken in the World. lol It was very good.

They also made macaroni & cheese, and green beans.

They surprised me by having some of my other kids come for dinner. (the missing ones were out of state & away at college) And my granddaughter! So it was a great late birthday dinner!

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.
