OMGoodness, I have been reading posts for three hours and still have nine posts to go! Take one day off from the computer and it takes two days to get caught back up. By tomorrow afternoon that number will be up around fifteen. If I didn't get to your post today, I hope to by tomorrow!
This weekend has been a very lazy weekend. Just a lot of hanging out with hubby.
Animal activist, don't read!
Hubby got some backstrap from a friend, about a week ago. I will NOT touch the stuff! If you are wondering what backstrap is..first it is deer..
Then it is the meat down the back of a deer.
Totally gross in my opinion! Bambi!
Anyway, so this backstrap has been in the freezer for a week, to my hubby that is way too long. He really loves the stuff!
This is how much...
18 years ago...
He is driving his big rig down the road in a slightly foggy dark morning. A buck runs out onto the road and hubby (not wanting to damage his trucks front grill) swerves to miss it, but his back trailer tires hit it anyways. Hubby gets out to check the damage, but really he got out to slaughter the dead deer. He had a electric cooler in his truck, for all of his Big Reds. Those got dumped all over the floor of his truck, deer meat was way more important! In his rush of cutting just the backstrap, he stabbed his leg! I think the salivating over what he was going to have for dinner, kept him from noticing his own blood and pain.
Then he had the nerve to bring it home and put it in MY sink. He was so excited and told me to look without telling me what I would be looking at. I will tell you my reaction was NOT what he was expecting! LOL! Yes, I can laugh about it, NOW!
Ever since that day, I haven't looked or touched raw Venison (deer meat). When he is preparing it and cooking it, I am in a different room for the entire time. I have tried it twice and each time it was gross.
Every time I make chili, he says "The only thing this chili is missing is some backstrap" or "You know what would really be great with this chili?"
So Saturday he asks...Do we have the makings for chili? Amazingly we did.
He cooked his backstrap and I made the chili. My only restriction was that he couldn't put the meat in the pot of chili, until I got my bowl!
He was sweet and didn't contaminate the whole pot.
His package had 20 pieces in it and he has 3 left, less than 24 hrs later!
Hubby says (while stuffing his face) I am soo glad you don't like backstrap, cause there wasn't enough for me to share anyways! LOL!
