Winter Fare

Sometimes you have to see it to believe it. This was our dinner tonight- true winter fare. I used the crock pot for a venison roast (#455 thanks for the gift, Andrew!) and added rutabaga, parsnips (which no one seemed to like roasted), carrots, and potato. Then, I sauteed red cabbage with some Bragg's (liquid aminos). When I looked down at my plate, I was startled by the color and beauty- even if I can't take a decent foodie photo. The BEST part was that everyone loved it- and I have the photos of the empty bowls to prove it. 
Winter Stew- Venison, Parsnips, Rutabega, Carrots, Potato... and Cabbage

His first bowl was finished before I had my first bite.

T asked to have his picture taken.

He says he doesn't like cabbage... but he eats it!

this was her second helping.
Oh, but there have been more gifts lately! And I need to continue counting (can't believe I'm nearly halfway to 1000!)
