Completely forgot to post this yesterday! Oops! Notice the new look? I spent last night trying to figure out how all this blog design stuff works. It's getting there, but I still want to change a few things.
Two recipes to share this week. The first was a meatless dish from Southern Living, Black Beans & Rice. Good, but not great. I feel like a lot of our meatless recipes are falling into that black beans/Mexican category. So while it was good, we've had other meatless Mexican recipes we prefer.
Ok, it's not often that Cameron and I truly hate a dish, like don't even want to eat it, start considering what else we can whip up fast...but this is one! I have been on the hunt for more recipes using ground beef. After a successful hunting season, we have a large amount of deer meat in our freezer. We tend to keep the backstraps for frying then grind the rest. This year we gave a lot away to friends too. Any recipe that calls for ground beef, I tend to substitute ground deer, unless it's burgers or meatballs. Venison is so lean it doesn't stick together well. But it's hard to go through a whole deer just using it for tacos & spaghetti, so when I found the recipe for Beef and Noodle Casserole on allrecipes.com with good ratings, it seemed promising. I was thinking it would be a little Hamburger Helper-ish, but without all the preservative taste. I don't write reviews often, but I did for this recipe saying I would rather eat Hamburger Helper!! Definitely a no-go in my opinion, but here's the picture anyways.
Not a very successful week as far as recipes go. Better luck next week!
