I have been busy as a three legged Squirrel Chaser since my dad brought my Deer Home!!
You would not believe how DELICIOUS it is. I have already cleaned One bone and am working on another one. Fresh meats are the bestest.
I had my dad get the antlers off for my darlings.. Ruby and Penny. Later he will cut them into some better sized pieces for them. If you are interested... you can actually BUY deer antlers at PetSmart... Butt of course the are NOT Fresh. Take a Paw and a Leg though beclaws they want a lot of green papers for them... The upside(s) is that they will last for... years... they do NOT stink like cow hooves (which are wonderful) and... they do NOT splinter.
My mom has canned 24 Quarts of deer meat. THAT is a LOT from One deer. The tenderloins is all taken care of and frozen ( they were a whopping 26 inches long.) And the dehydrator is full of Jerky. Mom also cooked a bunch of really grrrreat meat for me. She will put carrots and pumpkin in it and run all that through the food processor or the grinder. Then I have her put it in sandwich bags and freeze for me... It is to Drop and Roll for let me tell you that. Especially if she warms it in the microwave. OMD OMD OMD I just go all nutsy cookoo over that ... Any way... we will be eating GOOOOOOOD this winter thanks to the garden and my dad. Chili Veggie Soup Lasagna Noodles eggs & "steak" BBQ or just warmed up and eaten with crackers. There are MORE things we do with canned venison... butt I just can't even stand Listing the rest... I am drooling.
Now some of you wanted to know about the Tornado clean up. All of the houses are now repaired EXCEPT for the one that lost the ENTIRE ROOF. We Know those folks and stopped to check on them a few days ago. They have moved into a small house that they own.. and used to rent out... It is sooooo lucky that they had that beclaws... their house has been CONDEMNED. It is 6 inches off the foundation and there are Major other structural damages that can not be seen. The insurance Co. says they will pay for the full cost of demolition and the full price of the house.
Friday Puddles and I are going to do a Blog Etiquette/Issue post... beclaws it seems that something very impawtant has come up and needs to be addressed NOW... Not next month. We are here to serve you know. hehehe
