Checking on the cattle has been the hardest part but I'm glad the cows were bred for a later calving date. No little ones to worry about!
I started to make a pot of venison stew.... seasoned some cubed venison with salt and pepper, dredged in flour and gave it a quick browning.
Added the meat to a pot of cubed potatoes, onions, barley, beef stock and seasonings. I threw in what ever sounded good. :) Garlic, thyme, basil...
I'm not a fan of cooked carrots so I left those out and added corn instead. Then let the pot simmer on low all day until the venison was fall apart tender.
I'm not sure if it qualifies as stew but it turned out to be pretty tasty and it warmed me up..... just what I was aiming for. :)
With this last snow, I foresee green pastures and maybe even a good morel mushroom crop this spring! I'm keeping my fingers crossed. :)
Hope everyone stayed safe and warm!
