I’m taking a break from cooking anything new for the blog until after the new year. I’m not even in the mood to bake cookies or quick breads. I’ll be cooking in someone else’s house, again, on Christmas, making the old ham and scalloped potatoes, and I’ll be home for the New Year’s dinner of pork shoulder, kielbasa, and sauerkraut—plus the custard pies. After the new year, I’ll be back with more recipes, new or old, and many with all the game we have acquired this fall and winter. I killed a deer in October with my muzzleloader for the second year in a row, and Ted and Missy have been out for pheasant and grouse (the snow pics are from today). The extra freezer is filling up with game, as you can see below, and I look forward to coming up with a few new pheasant recipes. I was actually able to find unsweetened dried cherries in town, so venison stew will be showing up again soon.
Enjoy your holidays; if you don’t enjoy them, don’t worry, they will be over soon.
