1. We are sorrowed to report that one of the Founding Members has passed on. Dee (Righthand) is well remembered as contributing much to the operation of SurvivalMonkey, and is already greatly missed. Little lady, big person.

    Today's theme ingredient is venison.

    Backstrap was for lunch. Couldn't waste it in soup.


    Here's a few steaks.


    Browning a few pounds for venison barley soup tonight. Should be perfect for a cold windy rainy night.

    The backstrap was great. Seared on the outside, medium rare on the inside.

    Thought I was going to have the largest portion. Wrong! Little monkey ate all of hers and took half of mine. She knew better than to take her Momma's. ;)

    We have axis deer. Back strap was the first to go! I rubbed a little of the seasoning mix that I make on it and pan fried it in butter. Medium rare. Maybe a little more rare than medium. Delicious!

    Didn't have ice cream. We are in our cold season. Been in the mid-50s overnight and sometimes we don't crack 70 during the day. I know it's all relative. But that is cold for this island boy who pretty much just wears shorts and t-shirts.
