oh deer....

K was given a thank you gift for something.  There are so many thank you gifts flying around I can't keep up with which one is for what...

this was certainly more unique than the ubiquitous handtowel set or tin of cookies though- 


Deer meat!

A supermarket bag of the stuff. @_@  I decided to do some research on cooking deer and needed to know what cuts we had so opened the bag to check.  

Everything was very neatly sorted into categories.  Great!

But they weren't categories that matched up with recipes...

Not many recipes list meat by position quite like this- 'front left leg.' 'back right leg.'

So I asked K to check with the gifter to see how he usually eats it.

BBQ was the answer and so BBQ it was.

Everyone loved it which surprised and pleased me as Meg isn't really known for her adventurous palate and has so far refused to eat duck in any shape or form.

K was having a ball with different marinades and sauces and my idea of freezing half the deer was roundly voted down and we ended up eating deer three days straight.

Very lean, tasty and healthy I'm sure but three days straight....?

Oh deer.....

Doe, a deer, a female deer Ray, a drop of golden sun Me, a name I call myself Far, a long long way to run. Okay just kidding, just kidding. : )

What a nice gift to be given. I’m sure with all the sauces and yummy ways you all cooked it, it was awesome. : )

We occassionally get gifts of wild boar meat... I'm never sure how to cook it so it usually ends up at the bottom of the freezer. I know I should be very grateful, but sometimes I wish they would turn up with a bag of lamb instead!
