a fine repast

We've been doing a lot of painting, but I wanted to be sure to remember Heather's other occupation last week. Butcher's assistant. Someone from the farm hit a deer on the way home from work, so someone else came out and got it and brought it home for meat. It was as close as Heather was going to get to hunting her own food (this season, at least), so she asked to help with the butchering. Did very well, too, from what I hear. I chose to pass up that learning experience.

Now we have some nice fresh deer burger, a roast, and some steaks, too. We tried the steak a couple nights ago. Heather marinated it in yogurt with garlic, cinnamon and ginger, then beat it with a small skillet to tenderize and sautéed it in olive oil. Very good.
