Meal Plan #10

This month’s meal plan theme is let’s use up what I have in the freezer before I get half a cow at the end of the month. I will also be including all the recipes I will be blogging about which have a Thanksgiving dinner theme. I am excited about getting my first half a cow. I’ve never done this before. Jamie has done this several times. She knew it was something I was wanting to do and when they were buying calves is the spring she called. Organic, grass fed, hormone free beef for non retail prices – I’m in!

After digging around in the freezer, I see I have a lot of pheasant, white tail deer back strap and mule deer ground meat. I guess I need to get creative. Since I’m nearly out of chicken I will be substituting pheasant for chicken. So be aware that pheasant meat is red when raw and turns white when cooked. My pictures may look a little off. And I will be substituting deer meat for beef which looks the same and I’ve been doing for a while.
