Tonight we have company coming over so this is a great go to meal that can be prepared ahead of time. I like to use venison stealthly, and this recipe is a double score because it also stealthly involves vegetables. The venison is ground and I like to add just a touch of pork to it, about a 1:10 ratio. To give it more of an Italian sausage taste I mix in basil and oregano.
1 lb Venison mix (see above)
1 box oven ready lasagna noodles
2 cans Fire Roasted tomatos
Oregano (fresh or jar)
basil (fresh or jar)

This past weekend was opening weekend for white-tail season here in this part of Texas. The cracks of rifles has been fairly constant since Saturday, and the road is filled with city-folk heading out to their leases. I suppose I am lucky that my husband has only to wander out to the deer blind less than a quater mile from our house to get us a nice doe, but there are some mornings I would be more than happy to not spend butchering another deer. It is an unspoken compromise that my husband shoots it, brings it home, field dresses it, and takes off the head. After that, its all mine to finish.... Read More
Today, with the dreary weather and my dreary mood, I was so uninterested in feeding my family. Luckily inspiration struck as I dug through the bottom drawer of our freezer... potato soup.

In winter, on a stormy night as millions of snowflakes carried by the wind blanketed the landscape of sprinkled forms and muffled sounds, only the coughing of someone with a cold could be heard. The air was usually wet with a lingering spray of mucous mixed with bacteria dripping from a red swollen sinus when Grandma Seydee noticed the coughs, and a twitch in her right eye would appear. Then she began mumbling to herself incoherently, until she came to life as if animated with a purpose. She would holler, “wash your hands before and after you pick your nose,” as she examined every-one’s... Read More

I wake up much later than I had planned on my last day in Italy. It is my first time ever outside of North America, and I am on the homestretch of my first real taste of travel in almost ten years. I commit to opening my eyes and see that Will, who will be my traveling companion from Florence to Milan, has already placed the last of his belongings neatly in his pack. I’m groggy from the previous night’s debauchery, from which I retired just in time to avoid a stolen life-sized Santa and the chase that ensued. I’m achy from sleeping on the wafer thin, twin-sized mattress of my hostel cot... Read More
