The elk chili we tried last week was amazing. For my first foray into cooking wild meat, I was sold. So if you're looking for a good recipe for elk burger you might want to give it a try.
I have some leftover BBQ meatballs from our Superbowl party that I put into the freezer. They will find themselves creatively used in our menu this week.
I get lots of questions about the amounts of fruits and vegetables we eat because I don't always include them in my menu plans. I've been lazy in posting anything but the main dish. We eat lots of fresh, frozen, dried and home canned fruits and veggies so I've made an effort this week to show them so you can see where they are being served. Lot's of times I sneak them into recipes when I'm cooking. During the summers when garden veggies are in abundance I usually grate them up and store them in bags in my freezers. It's amazing how grated carrot or grated zucchini disappears into a nice thick spaghetti sauce or a soup. And I don't always note how I slip them in, but they are there.
