Happy Thanksgiving!

I know that its not until Thursday, but some things require modification.  Our daughters and their families are going to their in-laws for Thanksgiving on Thursday, so we had our today.  It was wonderful and chaotic, noisy and poetic at the same time.

Our little family has grown to 10, and 4 are small children – 4, 2, 2 and 1/3.  I can’t believe how small a large house feels when it is filled with 4 children, 6 adults and a German shepherd.

We chose to forgo the traditional main course and cooked marinated venison tenderloins.  They were fantastic, and what made them even better was the fact that we harvested them, prepped them in the field, butchered them, wrapped and ate them.  This all part of the food honesty I wrote about recently.

This is what 45 pounds of venison burger looks like as we were getting it ready to be wrapped and frozen.  It is more convenient to buy it at the store, but this is better.
