Despite the rain, it is still a beautiful day at the WP.
Doug brought home two rabbits from yesterday's hunt. I have a venison roast out and ready for supper's menu: Stroganoff.
Doug is out and working in the barns this morning after bringing in the firewood. It is rainy and very un-motivating, but I'm ready to get my morning chores done and plan to do some crocheting this afternoon. I have a pattern for a cowl which I really want to complete so I can wear before spring!
It is 1:45 pm and still raining. Doug has brought another round bale of hay up to the horses. I was finally able to catch Rhett and put him back into the pasture. He wasn't happy with me as he was rather enjoying wandering around the yard, nibbling on the last of the clumps of fescue.
Doug has gone to split some more firewood and I've started our venison stroganoff. I've got the fire warmed up in the wood stove which is where I'll let the stroganoff simmer for the next few hours--until supper. The wood stove is at 250 degrees. I'll make an Indian Chapati Flat bread to go with it and the mandatory egg noodles.
I've started the Katniss Cowl in a lovely, merino wool/nylon blend yarn by Schulana called Cortina. The picture is the one on the right, next to Lion Brand's photo of the completed cowl.
Before sitting back down, I need to run out and let our yard chickens outside to scratch around, throw a load of clothes in the washer, one in the dryer, and start the dishwasher....
2 lbs lean venison--I used a roast which has already soaked for 3 days in salt water and 1 day in a little bit of Game Tame by Allegro. Cut into 1" cubes.
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1c plain yogurt or sour cream
2T Worcestershire Sauce
2T Red cooking wine
4T canola or vegetable oil for frying
2t beef bouillon granules
1 pkg of egg noodles, cooked and drained.
Fry cubed venison in oil until browned and cooked all the way through. Remove from oil, set aside. In a dutch over add all the rest of the ingredients except the egg noodles. Add 1 1/2 c of water and blend well, salt to taste. Add the cooked venison. Cover and put in 250 degree oven for 4 hours, stirring occasionally. Or, if you have a wood stove, place it on top of the stove which is burning at 250 degrees. Let it simmer there for 4 hours, stirring occasionally or until venison is tender. Serve over cooked egg noodles and with fresh Indian flatbread.
I have to admit, this is really, very good!
p.s. I don't add the oil/drippings from frying the venison. I pour it over the dog's dry food for their special treat tonight.
who are we?
We are avid seamstresses and crafters since the ORIGINAL 1970's, and we're still going strong. We're also yarn, fabric, and pattern hoarders. ("Speak for yourself," protests Alice.) We, ok, I haven't parted with my stash in over 40 years until now. Maybe we'll have something that you just can't live without! Enjoy browsing!
