"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
Every family has a busy time of year. You might think that would be Christmas season or another holiday, but in the Braun family, it is "deer season". Simply put, if you are a locker plant and process 500 deer a year, then the time when you are doing that takes on a life of it's own..and even a name. For the two weeks when the store is accepting deer from locals for processing, they spend little time at home. In order to make sure their hired crew get good meals and to make sure they eat too, we always take turns cooking for the guys that week (reminds me of the hayfield when I was a kid). One year I tried this recipe for the crew and had rave reviews. It is just as good served over mashed potatoes.
