Gravy (and Biscuits)

This is a family favorite recipe. It is a very adaptable. Add cheese to the gravy if desired, adjust the amount of onions, use different seasonings if you wish. We usually enjoy it as written.

Use your favorite biscuit recipe, but we prefer it with large buttermilk biscuits. Since this is a heavy meal, a simple fruit salad served alongside is wonderful.

Venison Stew

I asked Mark what he wanted for dinner when he was home for Spring break.  He really wanted a good stew.  He gets it at school, but it is often salty and served with noodles.

Stew is a very flexible meal.  Add more or less vegetables or add other favorites.  Serve with a lettuce salad and maybe some bread, and you have an easy meal.

If you have frozen stew meat, you can still cook it in the crock pot. Skip browning the meat.  Start cooking the stew on high in the morning and cook for 8 hours.  We prefer to cook the frozen meat for 3 or 4 hours with pepper, garlic and onions, then add the remaining vegetables and spices for the last few hours of cooking.

 

Curry

We enjoy curry in many ways.  Allan came up with this simple recipe.

I prefer curry without bones, so I often use boneless chicken breast and thighs.  Allan prefers it with bone in chicken pieces, so use whatever you prefer.

To stretch the curry more, use more onions and tomatoes and adjust spices.  You can also add diced potatoes and peas if desired.
