The Daily Grind

My husband shot a deer earlier this week, "just" a doe ( a deer.  a female deer) but we are happy to have meat in the freezer. 

My mother in law, who just happens to be a meat cutter at the local grocery store, came over and help us cut it up! 

We have several packages of deer steak and 15lbs of burger in the freezer!!  To me, that's like money in the bank.

Hunting used to be a hobby of my husband's that was annoying and truth be told, stupid.  But now, with 4 kids and 3 of them being boys, I now encourage him to go hunting and bring home the meat. 

The deer hung in our garage for a few days, drying out and such.  When my dad came over today, he asked my hubby "Where did you get the deer?" (meaning, where did he shoot it) and Jarrett says: " In the garage Papa!  Duh!"

If it were only that easy!

  1. No one in my family will eat venison except for me. Eric no longer hunts.


    How wonderful to have someone help you cut it up! It's a messy and smelly job. The sooner it's over with, the better.


Please comment! Even if you just say "HI!".
