We have a lovely fresh deer loin sitting in the fridge. Kim is going to slice it into medallions, tenderize, then prepare as country-fried steak.
He wants mashed potatoes and gravy with it. We usually have instant...his choice, because he doesn't want to mess with them. But tonight, I'm going to try making the mashed potatoes out of baked ones. I think they'll be just as easy, and I know they'll taste better.
We'll have LeSeur peas with that...I like to eat them in with my potatoes. When I was a little girl, I didn't like peas. But my very imaginative mother used the mashed potatoes to make a little bird's nest, and put a spoonful of peas in for the eggs. I've been hooked ever since.
